    Awesome, cutting-edge clients to work with. Fast-paced and exciting work environment. Hard work and results are immediately recognized and rewarded. Staff is made up of hard working, fun, and down-to-earth people.

    Some people gripe that you have to "play the PR game." There is no game--if you work hard, be proactive, and get results for your clients, your work will be immediately recognized by management and you'll be able to move up the ladder quickly.

    Even though most people are really busy, they are still accessible--even the CEO and President--and will make time to help you with any questions you have. Management seems to be serious about boosting office morale and retaining employees long term-- they are working on events like trips to Giants' games, monthly happy hours, and more career development opportunities. The company really does feel like a group of friends that happens to be working really hard and collaborating together.


    It can be stressful at times, but that should be the case at a thriving agency. It can be hard to define the right work/life balance. There can be some office politics, but that happens everywhere. The high turnover can be unsettling and create instability on some accounts, but management looks to be trying to change that and keep employees long term.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up with the initiatives that show you're investing in employees in the long term.

    Hiring process for me was very much a get to know you experience. Personality is a huge part of working at SG, as is proving that you have the chops and that you're organized and able to stay on top of things. This is an organization that stresses skill and organization: client skill, media skill and managament/organization skills.

    Interview Questions
    • Generally, SG digs deep to provide case examples of how you achieved a specific result for a client. You'll have to dig deep into who you know on the media side.   Answer Question
