    I have been working at Blue 449 full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Management actually cares about the well being of its workers, they are always willing to work with you if you have some tragic family issue. Lots of opportunities for advancement as well as mobility to and from international offices.

    Cons

    No summer Fridays . No more unlimited sick days. Pay grade is good, but more money is always welcome.

    From High School to Hudson Street By Lila Horwood

    While the majority of my classmates spent their summers working as camp counselors or laying by the pool all day, I spent my days in an office building in New York City; and I know I made the right choice. As an incoming high school senior, you have to make challenging decisions about your future.

  • We are very proud of the great results we provide our clients. Check out the recent interview with Blue 449 US CEO, David Ehlers and Blue 449 Australia CEO, John Preston.

    Data is not killing creativity: Blue 449 on 'upping the game' for clients

    Creativity lies at the heart of Cannes Lions but it can easily be drowned out by the noise of data, analytics, and Artificial Intelligence (AI). But there is no reason why the two should be enemies, according to Blue 449 Australia's CEO, John Preston.
