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.
