Anomaly — Work life balance and benefits. Would love details, thanks! 👊🏻

W/L - depends on your supergroup but mine is extremely supportive of this and overall positive

Benefits - good health insurance with different options, gym, phone, 401k match immediately, vacation days depend on your time here, at 5 years become a sabbatical (I think 3 months?) with $5k to spend ... plus you’re at a top agency making amazing work with crazy talented people ... must I go on?

Yes, creatives! Hmm I actually don’t know of any bad/worst groups. It’s really about what kind of work you want to do and what you can bring to the table. People do work really hard, but it’s because we want to.

If we want to leave early that’s cool too, no one expects you to be here late if you get your stuff done. It’s not a 9-5 or anything but the general attitude is work smart, not hustle for the sake of it. And if something’s not right and it’s hurting creatives/their well-being, it’s addressed and fixed. Sometimes that means letting clients go.

What I will say as far as who’s a good fit here in general is that the expectations are high. You’re expected to have the right attitude, ambition, be forthcoming and kind...

I hope that helps a bit?

I do know of an open CD position right now. Also once you’re hired you’re immediately given 15 days PTO (personal days included to my understanding, but regardless, really great) and your birthday is an extra day of PTO you can take off! We also can bring dogs to work and have a full service, beautiful, huge in-office bar with Thirsty Thursday’s where we get free drinks from an in house bartender. We have amazing, fancy, fun holiday and summer parties and a wonderful week long event called “Anomaly Week” to celebrate the company’s anniversary where its a full week of really fun team building activities (like human bowling, karaoke contests, trivia etc) where everyone gets to know one another better and we have special catered events every day, (last year they brought in magicians, comedians and my favorite day they brought in circus performers which was TIGHT.) Its just an all around amazing place that I think really fosters creativity, passion and most importantly team work. Everyone is so awesome and a great person to be around.
