InnerWorkings – Why Work For Us?

InnerWorkings focuses on making marketing happen for the brands we serve.  At most major brands, the production of branded materials, marketing campaigns and retail experiences across formats and geographies represents a major blind spot. Typically, this is handed over to procurement or agencies that just aren’t equipped to handle the complexities involved.  As a result, they tend to rely on vendors they have a relationship or comfort level with, or those who just offer the lowest bid, so there’s no accountability for brand quality or the waste, inefficiency and excess costs that are hidden throughout the process. 




Brands like Unilever, Pizza Hut and Nike outsource their marketing execution to us because we bring a smarter, data-driven approach to marketing production – including point of sale and direct mail, retail environments, packaging, events and promotions, and branded materials.  We do it by leveraging our expertise, supplier network and proprietary technology – ensuring that every brand campaign is delivered with precision, impact, and accountability.


InnerWorkings began as a conversation over coffee about streamlining the brand delivery process – fast forward 13 years and our organization has turned into global marketing services firm. We’re proud to call ourselves strategic partners and trusted advisors to some of the world’s most recognized companies, and wouldn't be in the industry-leading position we are today without our people.

With more than 1,500 experts around the world, we bring deep domain expertise across the design, production and fulfillment spectrum. Our teams of experienced professionals consult with our clients through every step of the engagements, ensuring that expectations are met and exceeded. Together we have replaced an antiquated and fragmented industry and provided our clients with a fresh, efficient, and valuable ways to grow their brands across the globe.

    Positive work environment.Great business model. You work onsite at your client so it helps foster a good relationship. Management demands a lot but they reward you if you produce.


    Very demanding work load. Working onsite at the client has draw backs you always have to be aware of your surroundings. Also working at the client you need to adhere to their standard processes as well as IWs internal processes so there is a lot of red tape to get tasks completed. There are also too many unnecessary meetings where a short E-mail would of sufficed.

    Went through 5 rounds of interviews. First with a the recruiter, then with a VP, then with an operations manager, then with the account manager and then lastly with the client. Took them 3 months to produce an offer due to some hold up with the client. Pretty long and tedious process I ran out of excuses to get out of work in my current job.
