Shine United Ranks #32 in OUTSIDE’s Best Places to Work 2019

Wisconsin Advertising Agency Included For Seventh Consecutive Year In Top 50 Best Places To Work

Shine United is proud to announce we have been named as one of OUTSIDE Magazine’s 50 Best Places to Work for the seventh consecutive year. Shine was ranked 32nd in the 2019 edition.

OUTSIDE is America’s preeminent active and adventure lifestyle magazine. Companies included in the list not only offer excellent benefits to their employees, but they showcase a respect for the environment and encourage a work-life balance to ensure all employees can take advantage of the great outdoors.

Shine United has been creating strategic marketing plans and breakthrough advertising campaigns since its inception in 2001. The agency, based in Madison, Wisconsin, has done it all — from building a roadmap for success for emerging brands like Topper’s Pizza and Mizuno Running, to campaigns for eCommerce giants Amazon and GoDaddy.

“We work extremely hard to create a culture and atmosphere where collaboration and creativity can flourish,” said Mike Kriefski, Shine’s Executive Creative Director and President. “At the end of the day, inspired employees create inspiring work.”

Shine’s benefit package stands as one of the best in the country. Shine pays for 100% of its employees’ health, dental and life insurance premiums, offers a robust profit-sharing program, provides paid parking and home Internet service, offers competitive salaries, and for those reaching their 10-year work anniversary, a $10,000 bonus vacation.

In addition, Shine offers employees a variety of cultural perks. From half-day summer Fridays, free bagel Wednesdays, and weekly happy hours to sports watching parties, monthly birthday lunches and a new rock-climbing club to encourage strategic thinking outside the office.
