Planit and Weber Shandwick Named in the Ad Age List of Top-40 Agencies to Work For

by | Nov 18, 2014

Baltimore’s Planit was named one of the top-40 ad agencies to work for in a list published this week by Advertising Age. The magazine ranked agencies across the U.S. based on a survey of employees and a review of compensation, benefits packages and hiring practices, as well as work-life balance. Special perks, such as subsidized meals, gym access and transportation reimbursement, were also considered. “The 79 employees at this Baltimore brand agency have it good,” reported Ad Age.

“In addition to an office with an ‘amazing’ view of the harbor (you can kayak to work), there’s a Planit Wellness team that organizes monthly initiatives to foster healthier living and a Planit Employee Appreciation team organizing everything from paintball matches to an annual chili cook-off. Oh, and on meeting days, there’s an omelet bar.”

Also on the list is Weber Shandwick, which has offices in D.C. and Baltimore.  According to Ad Age, its size “doesn’t get in the way of fun, if the monthly lunches, happy hours, team outings and events that various staffers cite are any indication. In fact, the PR behemoth’s size and global scale—more than half of its clients are shared across geographies and practice areas—creates “global immersion” opportunities for junior talent to work in offices abroad.” The firm, which is based in NYC, also allows individuals to customize their roles to align with their skills and passions.
