An Insider's view of MediaCom

What's something quirky about your company?

Spontaneous stretch sessions in the middle of the day, basketball challenges when an afternoon break is needed, and the cutest office dogs that you’ve ever seen. One employee even set up a game of chess at her desk for people to pass by and make a move! We all look forward to coming to work - the little personal touches make a big difference.
