So that’s what we help you do.

We champion simplicity to help your brand reach its true potential. This focus allows us to reveal the essential truths of your organization, tell engaging stories that connect with your audiences and deliver simple experiences that look, sound and feel different.

Corporate social responsibility

Our approach

Social responsibility is rooted in the basic human instinct to help others and do the right thing.

Our CSR program is grounded in the core elements of our values and ethos—harnessing the power of simplicity to build world-class brands, driving innovation to solve clients’ problems and helping organizations and people realize their full potential. It stems directly from the truth of who we are.

We partner with the global nonprofit Unreasonable Institute to select our CSR Siegel+Gale Fellows. These social entrepreneurs are developing simple solutions to the world’s most complex problems—including poverty, hunger, pollution and lack of access to educational opportunities. All of them are thinking about challenges in innovative and imaginative ways.

We collaborate with the Fellows to create compelling brand stories and experiences that achieve business and social impact. In short, we bring their brands to life. For our Fellows, this means helping them meet their ambitious goals of improving the lives of more than one million people.

Our 2012 CSR Siegel+Gale Fellows are:

Michael Wilkerson, Tugende (formerly Own Your Own Boda), Uganda—Tugende helps motorcycle taxi (boda boda) drivers in Uganda own rather than rent their taxis to accelerate out of poverty. Michael, a former journalist and Fulbright scholar, is co-founder and CEO of this three-year-old for-profit social enterprise.

Mouhsine Serrar, Prakti Design, Haiti—Prakti Design brings fuel-efficient cooking along with its health, economic and social benefits to the world’s poorest women. Mouhsine’s affordable and elegant cookstove is already improving the quality of life for more than 100,000 people in India, Nepal and Haiti.

We reward our most talented employees with the opportunity to work with the Fellows—and make a significant impact on the entrepreneurs’ promising organizations. Providing branding and customer experience expertise also sparks the passions of our staff, many of whom are committed to confronting—and overcoming—complicated social problems in their own communities and beyond.

undefinedA Global Perspective

 
Siegel+Gale maintains vibrant offices in both established and expanding markets around the world. Each office is tightly integrated with the others, and staffed with a combination of both regional and international talent. With this breadth and diversity of expertise, our cosmopolitan team offers our clients a truly global perspective on their brands.

North America

Our home territory of North America includes three locations; in addition to our New York City flagship office, we operate from both Los Angeles and San Francisco—serving a panoply of clients across every sector.


Middle East

The cosmopolitan cities of Dubai and Riyadh—focal points for economic growth and development—host our Middle East and Africa office. From here, our diverse team serves burgeoning new economies through our work with energy, financial services and telecommunications companies as well as governmental organizations involved in culture, tourism and education.


Asia

With offices in both Beijing and Shanghai, we're well positioned to guide our clients through what many are calling "the Chinese Century." As a once-dormant branding market continues to grow and thrive, our teams of talented strategists, artists and technologists help global and Chinese brands alike navigate the complexities of this fascinating region.


Europe


Our London and Hamburg locations boast agile teams harnessing the new markets and fluid business opportunities of a rapidly transforming Europe. Based in major market centers, both offices serve an ever-expanding list of clients in the financial services, telecommunications, media, pharmaceuticals, manufacturing and technology sectors.

    Brand Strategist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Siegel+Gale (San Francisco, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Screening call w/ human resources , 30-minute calls with directors of the teams you'd be working on. They moved fast, but there wasn't an indication that the calls would be so short. In one instance I was very rudely and awkwardly cut off by a director. This individual mentioned that he had to run, I said Oh OK, then there was silence, so I said "hello?," and after mumbling something about needing to go, this person hung up. Hugely unimpressed by that behavior. Other folks I spoke to were nice enough.
