Celebrating What We Love About Working at Bateman Group
Earlier this year, we brought all of Bateman Group together in San Francisco to celebrate our agency’s 15-year anniversary. We spent three days reflecting on what’s brought us this far, envisioning the next 15 years and considering what makes working at Bateman Group so special. To commemorate this milestone, Media Associate Jacki Ochoa and Bateman Group’s video team sat down with our colleagues from around the country to capture their thoughts about working here, starting with what they love most.
We’ll be sharing more of these conversations on Bateman Banter and on Twitter and Instagram in the coming weeks. To kick us off, Talent Acquisition Manager Alex Mroz shares her thoughts on the most common answer – by leaps and bounds! – to our first question: “What do you love most about Bateman Group?”
Alex Mroz, talent acquisition manager:
“I had been interviewing with companies all around the Bay Area for months before Bateman Group came on my radar. I remember finishing up my last conversation and feeling confident that this place was special — and the fluffy golden retriever sleeping outside the room was a bonus.
“As Bateman Group’s hiring manager and recruiter, I get asked all the time what I love most about our agency. Sure, our clients are dynamic technology companies that are changing the world for the better. And yes, we have competitive salaries, generous benefits, dogs in our offices, snacks to munch on all day, and beautiful offices in Brooklyn, Portland and San Francisco. All of that could disappear and I’d still be happy, as long as my team was with me. (That might sound corny, but it’s true!)
“What I love most about Bateman Group is our people. They are smart, kind and genuinely want to see their colleagues succeed. We support each other in making our positions our own, and our leaders give us endless room to grow. We celebrate each other when it comes to the big wins and – just as important – the small ones. We care! That’s not something you come by easily these days.
“I talk to candidates all day about why we’re one of the best PR firms in the country. People want to know why they should want to work here — and the reason is our team.”
