Why People Love to Work Here: “There are so many reasons why our population is filled with long-tenured employees, but regardless of job function or term, the main reason is exposure. From day one, our Branding Specialists are involved in the entire project lifecycle, from idea generation through procurement and delivery. This broad-based exposure allows them to hone various skills, including project management, vendor relations and product research and design, while keeping their days fresh and ever-changing. Everyone (including junior people, accounting, operations and, of course, account managers) is directly involved with building solid relationships with our clients.”

Perks and Benefits: “We offer numerous benefits, including the ordinary ones and more unique offerings such as Snack Wednesdays, Summer Fridays, fitness classes and pet friendliness. Our most compelling benefit is our peer-to-peer recognition program. Funded by the company, this online system allows employees at all levels to award each other points for going above and beyond in performance or reaching certain milestones. When granting points, categories are chosen in conjunction with our core values, thus further emphasizing daily culture.”

Fun Things: “In recent years, we have held numerous fun and productive events, including a Myers-Briggs seminar, creative employee-conceptualized team-building events, iFLY indoor skydiving, charity runs and rides, baseballs games, concerts and summer intern events. We also hold semi-annual company parties, which have included boat rides, painting parties, pool parties and a unique event at Normal, where employees received custom 3-D rendered headphones.” – Drew Goldberg, director of human resources
