If you’re in the DC metro area, you may very well be curious where the best jobs are for media professionals.
Washingtonian magazine recently released its annual Best Places To Work guide, and good news! There’s more than one media company among the 50 great workplaces (unlike two years ago).
Making the list this year: ad agency Elevation, whose 15 employees get treated to weekly catered meals, sports tickets, and even a company outing to see Lewis Black. Elevation also has a New York office, which Washingtonian (obviously) didn’t mention, but we assume it is just as nice.
Also, relative newcomer LivingSocial, which hosts cupcake-eating contests for employees and provides an air hockey table. “Rewards for hard work,” Washingtonian says, “have included Super Bowl tickets and a trip to the Academy Awards.” The daily deal site is hiring at its DC headquarters as well as just about everywhere else.
And of course, perennial favorite The Motley Fool made the list, where vacation time is unlimited, there are cheap massages on site and employees focus on having fun. There’s at least one copy editing job open right now and of course they are working to launch their blog network, though bloggers surely don’t get all those cheap massages (too bad, we could use ’em).
