    Experience Required


    Our office is our playground. The spacious Soho loft was designed to ignite imaginations and encourage employees to interact because that is how the best ideas are born! At experiential marketing agency MKG, the heart of our business is engaging with consumers and creating a conversation, so what kind of experts would we be if we didn't practice what we preach? A bustling snack bar and Friday Happy Hours are just the tip of the iceberg (but a very important aspect of the culture, as eating and drinking always are)! Tuesday night runs take off from the office and end at a local pub and spontaneous exercise breaks take place throughout the week, shaking the sillies out in a no-judgement zone. White board Wednesday's have become a fast favorite; a physical Twitter feed where random thoughts and questions become conversations. The office photo booth is always a draw, stuffing as many random people in a tight space as possible (I think the record is 7) and taking goofy group shots. And about once a month we get crafty, (with wine and cheese of course) making holiday themed cards, or mugs, or whatever strikes our fancy!
    But the best time of year is when the "Daily Fairy" comes to the office...
    This initiative is the brainchild of our CEO Maneesh Goyal. One extra special month out of the year, there is a "fun calendar" comprised of themed activities, food, gifts, and surprises that make the office a buzz with excitement! Flowers on each of our desks, a petting zoo, and my personal favorite: taco and margarita day make company morale at an all time high!
