MediaCom is The Content and Connections
our tools, systems and processes are among the best anywhere, we
know that they count for nothing without the best people bringing
them to life.
Whenever someone walks through our
doors for the first time, the reaction is the same: this doesn't
look like a media agency.
And while it's true that our office
space - with its funky architecture, bursts of color and open plan
- may look more like a creative shop or the newest start-up, what
makes us really special goes way deeper than that.
That's because we hire people who want
to design and deliver experiences, not media choices.
Unconventional hires from outside the industry shake up our
thinking, helping us tell better stories and innovate more often.
And we put a premium on a diverse workforce: our U.S. staff is 59%
female and 33% multicultural.
Of course, not only do we hire the
best people anywhere, but we make sure they have the tools and
training to take their skills to the next level. Besides our storytelling courses, our
recently launched MediaCom University has hundreds of classes that
range from advanced media instruction to software tutorials and
lessons on anything from management to public speaking.
Our buddy and mentorship programs help
new hires get acclimated and grow their networks, while sabbatical
and global mobility opportunities allow employees to trial
different departments and experience other offices within our
network. Guest speakers are regularly brought in, with our insights
team hosting panels on different consumer segments with experts
from Univision, Logo and more.
We remember to have fun, whether to
celebrate a win or just because (this is advertising, isn't it?).
And we recognize, too, that we live in a larger world, with our MediaCom Gives
Back committee driving a number of volunteer and service
opportunities throughout the year.
Our "culture" isn't defined by a few
one-off efforts by our HR team. It's a full team effort, with
everyone chipping in… And when it really comes down to it, it feels
human to work at MediaCom. We don't have to tell people they can do
anything they set their minds to: it just feels that way to be
And that's pretty refreshing.
