Yesler – Why Work For Us?


undefined

From offices in Seattle, Portland, Philadelphia, Toronto, and remote locations around the world, our team of more than 200 strategists, designers, technologists, media experts, and analysts are on a mission to change the marketing status quo. Our teams and services coordinate to apply a blend of strategy, creativity, and technology to convert our client’s audiences to customers and their customers into advocates.

Why Us? We think our employees can answer this question best. Yesler does frequent engagement surveys to get input from the team. Below, are a few employee comments from one of those surveys:

"Fantastic company culture and people. Everyone is such a pleasure to see every day."

"We hire good people and offer flexibility to balance work/life as best we can, which is challenging for any agency. It's obvious leadership cares about the people at Yesler."

"...I feel more respected by this company than any previous employer I have worked for, and I can honestly say it makes me want to work harder."

"Work to life balance, and great rewards for good work.  I feel like I work with nothing but industry rockstars, which keeps me striving to be the best I can be."


 

It's important.  Really important.

At Yesler, we take our mission statement and values to heart - and it shows!

Our Mission Statement: To make a positive impact on the people we work for, the people we work with, and the global community.

We embody this mission in the Yesler Way, aligning our values, interactions and work with the following tenets:

  1. Be a good person.
  2. Action trumps intention.
  3. Think different.
  4. Speak your mind (but do it respectfully).
  5. Commit.
  6. Results matter.

But what do those pithy statements mean at Yesler?

“Be a good person.”  We act ethically, honestly and with compassion. We treat each other and our clients and partners in the way we want to be treated. By acting honorably, we can be proud of who we are as professionals and of our organization.

“Action trumps intention.”  If you say you’re going to do it, do it. If I say I’m going to do it, hold me to it. Hold each other accountable and collectively raise the bar.

“Think different.”  Think about outcomes; don’t just focus on activities. Want a different outcome? Try a different approach. “We’ve always done it that way” is a clue to think more.

“Speak your mind...”  Just do it respectfully. Communicate early and often. When you don’t agree, present a solution. 

“Commit.”  Agree and commit; disagree and commit. But commit. Commitment is mandatory to a team’s success. Principled conflict, not consensus, opens the door to excellence.  

“Results matter.”  What gets measured gets done. No one is exempt from setting and meeting goals. We don’t just have an analytics team, we’re an analytical culture.

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

    Pros

    Yesler is definitely the best place I have ever worked!

    - Work/life balance is highly valued with options to WFH when needed
    - Great culture with amazing co-workers who are like family
    - Company and leadership are constantly innovating and reinvesting in their employees

    Cons

    No real cons. It's a marketing agency so the usual shift in business and projects is to be expected but it also makes working here that much more exciting. Each day can be different!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to your employees and ask for feedback. Also, continue to keep being open and transparent with the entire company. I guess what I'm trying to say is don't change a thing and keep up the great work!

    Social Media Strategist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Yesler (Seattle, WA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was a succinct, informative one that had me move through the process relatively quickly while feeling as though I got to know a good number of people in various roles throughout the company. I took a lot from my interview process and it became very clear from the discussions that I had that Yesler would be the right fit for me.
