TALENT. It's the single most important asset in any company. The ability to recruit, develop and retain talent can be the difference between success and failure, winning business and falling behind the competition. This year we set out to identify the best places to work in advertising, ad tech and media. We searched for companies that do an exemplary job of crafting cultures that attract, foster and reward the best minds in our industry.


We looked at compensation, benefits packages and hiring practices, as well as work-life balance. Special perks, such as subsidized meals, gym access and transportation reimbursement, were also considered. But we wanted to hear directly from employees, so we surveyed more than 20,000 people to find out, in essence, how they feel when they walk through the door and sit down at their desks day after day.


The 40 companies on our list stood out—read on to find out why they're the best places to work in the industry.

New York-based Buck Consultants, which has nearly a century of experience in human-resource consulting, crafted two surveys. Employee surveys, which had 50 questions, accounted for 60% of a company's score, while the 100-question employer survey accounted for 40% of the score. Any agency, ad-tech or media company with more than 40 full-time employees in the U.S. was eligible.

With $851 million in revenue in 2013, making the digital agency the 12th largest in the world, according to the Ad Age DataCenter, SapientNitro means business. But despite its high-tech and digital-marketing work with some of the biggest brands in the world and its massive operations around the globe, the shop manages to offer the flexible work hours, free beer and "egoless environment" typically enjoyed by boutiques, according to staffers.


"There's never a set path to a great solution, so we encourage employees to take a new perspective, find a new angle, make something up to make it happen, even where there's risk involved," said the agency.
