An Insider's view of AdAction Interactive

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We have games in the office which offer a fun breather throughout the day. A lot of team members eat lunch together and our kitchen area is a great place to catch up. It's cool to see what everyone is doing for the weekend, what concerts they might be going to, new restaurants they're checking out, or what shows everyone is watching.

How does the company support your career growth?

My career growth is supported by the people at AdAction. When I take on a new task, they're patient with me while I learn the ropes, ask questions or help me come up with a game plan. It makes it easy for me to want to take on new tasks, no matter how challenging. Every new task contributes to my growth and makes me excited to tackle what's next.

What's something quirky about your company?

I'd say how close-knit we are. We have these fun, silly Google Docs of things like best wings in the city, best movies of all time, memes and GIFs we make of each other, and even have a "Burn Book" where we enter hilarious reactions to common mishaps. We hustle hard at work, but it's great to be able to share a good laugh with your teammates often
