Fort Worth, TX – PMG was named one of the 50 Best Places to Work in Advertising & Media by Advertising Age today. The agency ranked #13 among an exclusive list of 50 companies selected based on criteria such as hiring practices, benefits packages, salaries, office perks, workplace environment, and design.
Advertising Age noted PMG’s collaborative culture, innovative methods to foster broader and deeper learning, management’s openness and transparency, and industry-leading employee retention rates. Additionally, PMG was lauded for its maternity and paternity leave policy, as well as its expansive new office, which includes a large patio, bar, and Lego wall – all factors behind creating a creative environment that inspires talent.
“As always, the competition was tough. Out of the hundreds of companies who applied, we’re calling out fifty big shops, independents, agencies, ad tech, and media companies for being leaders in recruiting, retaining, and cultivating talent,” said Ken Wheaton, Editor of Advertising Age. “At the end of the day all these organizations are in the talent business and they’re doing it right. They’re finding interesting, relevant, and often unexpected ways to create cultures and work environments that keep employees engaged.”
“Our goal since the agency’s founding was to create a place where people can challenge themselves and accomplish amazing goals,” said Chris Sinclair, Head of Service and People Development at PMG. He added, “We constantly ask for feedback on how to make PMG better for its team members, and this award is very satisfying as it shows we’re doing the right things.”
Submissions were evaluated by Advertising Age research partner Buck Consultants LLC. Buck crafted two surveys to help Advertising Age find the companies with the best benefits and most-engaged employees. The employer survey contained about 100 questions, including questions about pay, promotions, health care and other benefits and hiring practices. The employee survey measured aspects of the workplace environment that contribute to an engaged staff, including matters such as fairness of pay, vacation time, relationships with management and co-workers, career development and other workplace issues. Any agency, ad tech or media company with more than 40 full-time employees in the U.S. was eligible. Nearly 20,000 people were surveyed as part of the selection process.
