An Insider's view of Single Grain

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Our work-week is Monday to Wednesday in the office and Thursdays and Fridays are remote. It's the perfect balance to collaborate earlier in the week and then really focus and execute at the end of the week. I never feel like I'm chasing the weekends here. Wednesdays are like Fridays to me!

Operations

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

When I first started at Single Grain as an intern, I knew very little about any kind of marketing but I was hungry to learn. Fast forward a little under a year and now I feel comfortable creating social strategies and contributing to the Content Marketing team. This is all thanks to the guidance and education provided to everyone at Single Grain.

We're not just an agency. We're an organization that focuses on the continual development of its employees, clients, and students around the world. Our burning desire to educate allowed us to build an audience and ultimately, we want to educate 40 million future leaders on creating predictable growth!
