InnerWorkings – Why Work For Us?

who we are

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.

connected globally, networked locally


Our combination of on-the-ground expertise, strong supplier relationships and scale of operations in all major worldwide markets sets us apart. This is not a partner-driven global footprint – our global team is comprised of more than 1,500 InnerWorkings employees, all of whom have many years of experience and deep expertise across our full service portfolio.

    I worked at InnerWorkings full-time (less than a year)


    Working for InnerWorkings was a great job. The pay was good and the atmeosphere was good. Time off was average with the industry. Work was steady and there was always something to do.


    There is a bit of micro-managing that was overwhelming. Training was not really there, hands on was the only way to learn. Management is too focused on numbers, which is not always the way to look at things.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at InnerWorkings.

    Interview Details

    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.
