What Our Team Members Say
Rated 95/100 in an Independent 3rd Party Survey

The most obvious piece of the success of KWSM, and the biggest reason many of us are here, is that they hire based on the fit within the organization instead of hiring to fill a position. Looking at the people first and hiring who fits in with the company culture and ideals shows their dedication to keeping the company friendly and enjoyable, and recognizes that someone willing to learn and grow is far more important than anything else. Recognition is another big piece. Good work is always recognized, from the smallest successes to the largest. Everyone feels appreciated and like they have a support system that will go to bat for them. Having management that cares more about teaching and guiding your career than the bottom line is unique in every industry, but particularly in the social media marketing world.
I've been a part of a few different agencies over the years, and my time at KWSM has really blown away what my impression of "agency life" previously was. So many places hire smart people - But don't focus on getting the right people. Katie (our fearless owner) goes out of her way to build teams of people who connect with and support each other on many different levels. Her people first approach has led to a work environment that is not only conducive to professional development and results, but also a highlight of many of our days. One last thought - The whole company has gone above and beyond with giving me the flexibility to adjust to many unexpected events that life has thrown at me. I appreciate the lack of hesitation to help team members at a moments notice, and would recommend this company to anyone.
As an employee, I feel that we are recognized for who we are as people along with skill level. People who align with KWSM's mission and values will find themselves challenged, appreciated, and validated in this organization. No other job or upper management has shown as much integrity and compassion for their employees as I've seen here.
In all my years of working in this industry, I have never been apart of a company that genuinely, honestly, and intentionally cares for it's people. Workers here are celebrated - workers here are nurtured - workers here are encouraged. Even when projects hit some speed bumps, I have no reason to believe that the leaders of KWSM will have my back and help me pursue the best way to correct the issue that serves our client, and my professional growth. KWSM champions culture and growth here - I am proud to be apart of it.
My experience at KWSM has been beyond what I had hoped for. The leadership from the top down is so impressive. I think what strikes me as the most impressive is the genuine way they care about people individually. I have never worked in a place that is so respectful of my time and wellbeing. They are here to see me grow and see me win.
