    Culturing in Place: 3 Things I've Learned to Maintain a Positive, Virtual Workplace Culture

    Back in late September 2019, I received my offer letter to join the account service team at Fingerpaint in their Conshohocken office, and I had a big decision to make. Pulling the trigger on a career move is always a stressful process, but this was the first time that the job found me instead of me finding it.

Fingerpaint Marketing – Why Work With Us?


Put simply, we’re people first. We take care of our employees in every way you can imagine, from 100% paid healthcare premiums and paid sabbaticals to flexible PTO and a student loan repayment program. 401k? Generous. Peer-to-Peer recognition? Frequent. Dogs and children? Welcome (although neither should bite or chew the furniture). We know, we know. Everyone says they love their employees. But at Fingerpaint, the proof is in the perks. 

We give you a career, not a job. We’re growing at a crazy clip, and that means we’re always hiring—across all 4 offices. Take 2019 for example. We fielded nearly 7,000 applications from candidates, welcomed 103 new hires, and put 36 interns through their paces. What does that mean for you? This is a place you can spread your wings, grow with the company, and push your career to the next level.

We don't just dabble in helping others, we live it. If you care about caring, you’ll fit right in. In 2019, we helped out over 100 non-profits with time, talent, or funding. We’re talking everything, from homeless shelters to foster care programs to ending child hunger. In fact, we love philanthropy so much, we close our office one day a year to do nothing else. We even have a full-time director of philanthropy, Bo. She’s awesome. 

We stick to our philosophy—Never Paint by Number. It guides everything we do, from a first round of creative concepting to delivering integrated campaigns for our clients. On every project, we ask ourselves 3 questions:

  • Is what I’m doing Paint by Number?
  • Can I see the difference this will make?
  • Is it worth my signature?

If it doesn’t pass those 3 tests, it’s not good enough. That’s how we keep our standards high, our clients happy, and our employees stimulated. Care to join us?

Wherever you are, we can be there in a jiffy. Unless you’re in, like, Papua New Guinea. That could take a little longer.

Saratoga Springs is upstate New York at its finest. Gorgeous lakes, buzzing nightlife, hiking, craft breweries, top-notch schools—the list is endless. Whether you’re looking to put down roots or cut up the town, this is the place to do it.

 

Phoenix is in the heart of Arizona. It’s packed with thriving communities, amenities, and stunning desert scenery. With convenient access to both coasts and immeasurable opportunities to explore the outdoors on weekends, our downtown location is an oasis in the middle of a city.


 

Conshohocken is just outside of the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia. A quick trip can bring you to visit the Liberty Bell, the Rocky Steps, or the birthplace of the Cheesesteak. Home to our second largest office, the “Conshy” crew keeps busy in this hub of commercial development.


 

Cedar Knolls is Fingerpaint’s newest location - right in the heart of the Garden State. Only 30 miles from New York City, you can trade the concrete jungle for the Morristown Green (a park near the office featuring historical sites and a shopping and restaurant district) in no time at all.

    Pros

    Other reviews will talk about 2 things:
    1) FP's "people first" culture: Our culture is undoubtedly the agency's most notorious and verifiable trait. The leadership at ALL levels are fantastic, and trained to have the emotional intelligence to keep the FP ship running smoothly while keeping employees' happiness and work-life balance top of mind. Everything you hear in defense of this culture is true, and permeates every aspect of the work we do, in ways both overt and subtle.

    2) "Toxic" work culture - unfortunately a few people take "people first" to mean having low standards, no accountability or never having to work long hours. That's a shame. All agencies, healthcare or not, have one thing in common: bonding while in the trenches on hard work. If you love what you do, and you're willing to work hard at it, then things like occasional long hours or direct on-the-job performance feedback are understood and appreciated. The numbers don't lie - neither of these are the "norm" at Fingerpaint. Standards are high. People work hard. We love what we do. And the word "toxic" is antithetical to the agency.

    Cons

    Like all agencies that are growing, there are growing pains. Most are actually opportunities, if you're willing to look for them.
