An Insider's view of Whip Media Group

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The LA office definitely has a relaxed vibe. There's music playing, interesting conversations happening, and you can usually find our CEO Rich roaming around the office. There's also a theater for movie screenings, and when you feel like hopping off Slack and interacting IRL, you're sure to find someone to talk to (and something to eat) in the kitc

CEO

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

The most important part of my job is hiring and retaining great people, so I make myself available via any method (Slack, email, walks, meals, etc.) to anyone with questions, frustrations, or suggestions. I often spend 25-30% of my work week in 1:1 discussions. They’re where I get my best ideas about how to make Whip Media an amazing place to work.
