Member Since 2018
I've been working in Advertising for 11+ years. I started in New York at some of the biggest agencies then moved to Seattle where I continued to work at big agencies for big clients. There's a powerful swing in agencies where you're either highly respected or treated as disposable, especially as a lowly assistant. At my second agency I was an assistant who worked directly under the VP and owned a $10MM+ account. I worked 12+ hour days and was exhausted. In 2011 I started a digital marketing agency where I wanted to keep the organization flat, hiring only experts so that assistants weren't getting steam rolled. I wanted an agency that truly put people first where if someone needed to go pick up their kids from daycare there was no question. Where everyone logs off at five (which they do!). Where no person is an island (even though we're a distributed agency). Where policy change comes from hearing from the people doing the work rather than executives with no understanding on what people need. Last year this was really put to the test when we had two people go on Maternity/Paternity leave back to back and another employee diagnosed with cancer. We survived with all employees back in full action and financially stronger. I'm incredibly proud of the agency I've helped build and look forward to offering these benefits to more people as we continue to expand.
If we're feeling lonely, then it's up to us to do something about it.

Company culture is the foundation of how a business functions. When a business hires new employees, there can be a tendency for those newcomers to shape company culture through their personalities. On rare occasions, these people can be charismatic enough to change company culture completely. If the changes benefit the organization, then this might be a good thing.
