For the third year running, Stella Rising is an AdAge Best Place to Work! The annual AdAge survey identifies and honors the best employers in the North American marketing industry. To be recognized means we lead the pack in factors ranging from pay and benefits to corporate culture and leadership. This honor from AdAge is one of the most coveted in the industry—and to make the list three times in a row speaks to the commitment we have to deliver excellence in all that we do.
What differentiates Stella is the focus on the full employee experience and how our Stellas feel—respected, included, equal, valued—from day one. At Stella, we offer competitive pay and foundational benefits that rival larger agencies, as well as emphasizing clear career paths, premier training, open communication, executive-level coaching, and transparency.
Said Stella Rising CEO Andrea Van Dam, “In 2023, we shattered agency records for top and bottom-line growth, client retention, new business, NPS, and promotions. The Stellas are an incredible group of people—the care and collaboration they show to each other shines through, making everyone feel supported, and driving all of our exciting success."
The 50 companies on the 2024 list were all analyzed and scored for workplace policies, practices, philosophy, and demographics; this data was paired with employee survey responses to determine the top spots.
