What Our Team Members Say


When I joined KWSM: a digital marketing agency, I was looking for an organization where I could be confident in my own work abilities and in my team. I was looking for a home, a place where I could see myself growing both personally and professionally. KWSM has exceeded my expectations. Their initiatives and programs help to make us, as employees, stronger and more engaged with our work. Our leaders support and uplift us, providing a positive spirit that radiates even through Zoom. The work that I do is engaging, and sometimes challenging, but I always feel as though I can call on any team member to help me address a challenge. KWSM, as an organization, provides me with the inspiration to produce my best work, and the courage to grow professionally in a variety of skills.

I feel like the company really does value and care about us as employees and as people, and has a very high level of integrity I haven't previously encountered in other workplaces. There is clearly a genuine desire from management for our growth and wellbeing as employees.

KWSM is a great place to work. Whether you have years of experience or are just starting out in your career, there is a place for you. The organization has endless opportunities for personal growth and always has each other's backs. No matter what is going on in your life, or with your work, all of the team members, including the senior leadership, is willing to help you in any way possible. I love working here and have seen myself progress in my marketing career as well as get to know great humans. Everyone here truly wants to be a part of the organization.

KWSM is a great place to work for individuals who are just starting their career or those who have been working in the industry for a while. KWSM offers professional development opportunities and continues to challenge employees to learn new skills to better themselves and the team. KWSM is a great organization because they truly care about every team member and provide an amazing work environment. I would definitely recommend others to work for this organization if they want a place where the work is exciting and the people are fun to work with!

This was the first company to "take a chance" on me because they saw potential and believed I could learn new skills. Because of that, I have been given the opportunity to learn so many new things that are crucial to my career development.

I’m grateful for the training and opportunities I've received to increase my digital marketing certifications, grow my leadership through an 8-week course, and receive a promotion.

KWSM is always offering opportunities to further yourself professionally. For myself, I've been able to hone my public speaking skills via a masterclass which has set me up for great professional growth.

Because the company focuses on evolution, I have developed new skills in a number of critical areas within our industry. This is invaluable to my professional growth.

KWSM offers plenty of resources for professional development and growth including a robust onboarding and training program, mentorship programs, leadership programs, and certifications. I feel that these have all been put in place to help me succeed here.

There is complete transparency in the organization. I never feel like I'm in the dark about company decisions because everything is shared with us openly and honestly, and it's clear that decisions are always made in the best interest of the company AND the employees.

KWSM is the most transparent company I've ever worked for. They clearly communicate changes, and leaders explain everything from big changes to small project feedback notes consistently. This open communication leaders to trust between all employees and departments.

I love working here. I am encouraged to grow and become better and stronger. It's not about seniority or skill-level when you work at KWSM, it's about how you make an impact and grow yourself within the team. The career path isn't just a straight line, it's blurry until you get a foothold into the area you want to specialize in. The opportunity is great, and the sky is truly the limit. I feel happy about my career growth and it's exciting to watch my peers grow as well. I still feel that I have a lot to learn, and that's because we never stop growing.

KWSM was the best decision I've ever made. Not only have I transformed in just a short period of time, but I've also never worried about the well-being of my job or my family. At the start of the pandemic, our leadership went above and beyond to ensure everyone was safe and taken care of. We've even continued to adjust to changing safety requirements and I've always felt secure. At KWSM, I know that my job will always be there in the morning and that my team genuinely cares about me. There truly is no other company like KWSM.

KWSM is a really great place to work. Our managers have our backs and will jump through hoops to help us in any way that they can. Our opinions are heard, valued, and used to better the company. KWSM hires for fit first, then for skill, and it 100% shows. I truly enjoy working with every single person on our team. Employee conflict just doesn't exist at KWSM. Overall, everyone on the team genuinely cares for one another.

Not to be dramatic, but working at KWSM has been life-changing. I have developed more interpersonal skills, leadership skills, and confidence in my abilities than I've ever had in my life. My responsibilities and the ways my managers help facilitate my growth have shaped me into a more qualified professional, and I am proud of the skills I have picked up along the way. More importantly, the leaders on this team have encouraged me to regularly share my opinions/ideas, which has launched me out of my comfort zone, made me a more effective contributor to the team's success, and given me total confidence in my voice and what I bring to the table. I am inspired by the ways Katie, the President of our company, displays her passion for building up young women in the industry by encouraging them to show up and speak up in every meeting. Her guidance has made all the difference in our company culture and in my own personal development. I couldn't say enough good things about this company, our fantastic team of A-players, and how it has shaped me both professionally and personally.

This is a great job that challenges me and helps me grow. We do great work for great clients and are pushed to excel. The team is strong and the leadership is picky about who joins the team, which creates a strong level of trust with those that work for us. The people I work with are kind, smart, and talented. There is a lot of training to help with time management and how to improve work-life balance. We get every other Friday off, which gives me a lot of time off.

Whenever I bring forth a fresh idea, it is always welcome by the team and my manager. Once presented, I'm given the opportunity to plan/research/execute the plan and report the results. It feels great to work for a company where my voice truly feels heard.

I feel that I have what I need to do the most for myself and the company in this position, and to get promoted. Opportunity is the most important part of my professional development with KWSM, because it is plentiful.

I have been promoted several times as my hard work is being recognized. It was great to be promoted into a role that I was drawn to, creating an opportunity for myself to advance in an area that interested me. Our CEO provides the unique opportunity to design your dream job and write a plan on how your role will impact the organization. It took several weeks of working together with the leadership team and CEO, but I made it happen! As I continue to evolve, the job I am in evolves with me. It's something that will be hard to find anywhere else. It's what makes this agency so invaluable to my career.

In the short time that I have been with KWSM, I have felt that their dedication to one on one trainings and meetings have directly affected my professional development and growth.

I think just knowing that I have the opportunity to continue growing in my career here. Katie talks about it all the time and is very transparent on what it takes to move up in each of our roles. I am learning something new to add to my toolbox of abilities every week. I feel stronger in my capabilities as times goes on and I look back at everything I've completed/accomplished.

I have been able to work closely with the CEO to help me understand where I needed to grow. She has given me a tremendous amount of resources to help me expand my knowledge and help me understand how to apply that knowledge to my job. These resources have been in the form of written material, podcasts, in-person seminars, and individual coaching.

Katie and the leadership team have done nothing but support my career and personal development from day one. They have always been open-minded, flexible, and trustworthy in their interactions with me and the rest of the staff. KWSM feels like a family, and I'm so proud to be a part of it. This job has played a major role in my life.

Managers are always open, honest, and forthright about changes, my progress, and areas of improvement. They are extremely supportive when it comes to new projects and dealing with sticky client situations. I never feel alone/stranded when it comes to a situation/project.

.

Communication and loyalty are what I believe make effective leaders in this organization. I am confident that if anything goes awry, there will be no hesitation on the senior leaders to let me or my coworkers know about it. They communicate with us and there is understanding because we trust in one another to say we are doing okay or that we are dropping the ball on something.

We meet with the entire leadership team every Monday. This gives us the time to go through our open projects and get what we need from them to do our jobs well. I find that leaders in the room always listen carefully to what is going on with every project, even those they are not directly involved in. They take good notes and always follow up with what I needed to do my work. Over time, this has made it easy to trust them to follow through on their word.

The leaders in our organization value transparency and integrity in their communication, actions, and choices which I feel builds trust with employees.

The leaders and management at KWSM are extremely transparent about the goals for the company and the goals set for me. I know that at any time I can ask for a progress report and request to take on more so that I can continue to contribute. They do not shield us from the fact that it will take work and that we must do that work with a sense of excellence and integrity. They are equally as dedicated to that cause.

Managers meet with us 1 on 1 every week to discuss our thoughts, feelings, and emotions towards our clients and our work. They care about us more than just employees, but as people with lives that are significant to them as well.

Our leaders take the time to provide feedback, both positive and constructive, an a regular basis. The leaders care about the people they work with. They want to know each person and build a connection with them. They go beyond simply 'getting the work done' and want to find a way to connect with each person and help them be successful.

This is a fantastic company to be a part of, and I'm grateful for the opportunity to be here. Katie has done a great job of building a team around her that clicks. I consider each of my coworkers as my friends, and my managers as mentors whom I highly trust.

I recommend KWSM to my friends because while our work is challenging, it is also incredibly rewarding. We are recognized for our accomplishments and constantly encouraged to improve our skills and try new things.

I love telling others about how great it is to work at KWSM. I have the utmost confidence that my superiors will always make the right choices for interested applicants as the company grows because the team is so top-notch. This is a great bunch, and I'm glad to be part of the team.

I know that if I share my thoughts or ideas they will be heard and considered by everyone on the team. I like coming to work every day and I feel like I'm valued amongst our team. I feel like I would be missed if I didn't work here anymore and that everyone is appreciative of the work I put in and my time is recognized. KWSM is a great place to work and I have felt fulfilled here.

This organization is run by an incredible leader who is continuously looking to innovate, improve, and grow. There is a reason for everything we do in our organization and I can feel the improvement over time. I have been at this company for 2 years now and I feel the perfect harmony of stability and ruthless innovation. The industry we are in requires collaboration and we are set up for future success.

I recommend this company to friends as a place of employment but also as a digital marketing agency. I believe in the quality of work that we do and the people that are on our team. As a digital marketing agency, I believe that we service our clients with unparalleled dedication, and as a place of employment, I believe that we service our employees with the same attitude. KWSM is fiercely loyal and dedicated to the happiness and success of their employees. I truly feel they care more about their wellbeing and growth, than just making money and gaining new clients, which is much more than many other organizations can say.

Everyone at KWSM is constantly working as a team and always having each other's back. I've never worked for a company where the managers actually listen. If I have a problem, they're here to help find a solution. If I have an idea, they're open to hearing about it. They're not just planning for the future of the company but for the future of my career. They want to me succeed and that alone makes me feel really appreciated! Knowing that I'm valued at work is what makes me excited to go to work every day. I truly enjoy working with each and every one of my coworkers and love all the different strengths we bring to the team. We get down to business and work really hard but also have a lot fun during our celebrations, team outings, happy hours, etc.

I feel confident in the management and owner that they have integrity and amazing intentions for those who work for them. It's truly a team-oriented environment. You are learning something new and growing every week, while always knowing that there is someone to support/guide you along the way.

This company is an exciting place to work. The leaders are constantly working to figure out ways we can do better work for our clients, while still keeping the employees work/life balance in mind. The company is growing quickly, but it feels manageable. Additionally, they have implemented several new benefits in the last year that has really made a difference. The leaders are smart and hard workers. They care a lot about the people who work here and about doing the best work for our clients. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

I cannot express enough how important it is to me to be a part of the KWSM team. Katie has worked hard to turn a small social media agency into something great, and it starts with her leadership style and the people she has cultivated around her. From Jeff, my supervisor, to Stephen and others on the leadership team; I never feel alone if a task becomes too great. I think that any organization can push people to work hard and do a good job. What makes KWSM different - and sets it up as one of the greatest place to work - is that employees here don't need to be reminded of how important their jobs are. We are motivated by the example put forth by our leaders and the team around us. I take pride in working here, and see each of KWSM's wins as if they're a win of my own.

KWSM is a workplace that gives you the freedom to be you. They have work-life balance down and will do what they can to support you, no matter where life takes you. Everyone truly cares about each other and the work they are doing. It's a joy to be a part of this growing agency!

KWSM has exceeded every expectation I had of it as a working environment, prior to joining the team. I have been a part of several organizations that promised to uphold certain values, but never followed through. I never doubt the KWSM leaders when they say that they are going to prioritize something. They are people of their word, and that is something I greatly value.

I love working at KWSM. I feel positively challenged in my work which allows me to grow as a writer and marketer. I have the freedom to express my thoughts and contribute in all areas. I feel that my opinion is valued. Everyone I have worked with is extremely helpful and loyal.

KWSM has established itself as a quality, compassionate, and competent digital marketing agency over the course of 10+ years; this is unheard of in the industry. They strive to create the best results for all kinds of clients, regardless of industry. They treat everyone as a partner, not just another paycheck. This is the same way that they treat their employees. People are hired for their quality of character because that is what builds a strong business. The leadership knows that they can train someone to do the job and so finding those people that are good and hard-working is key.
