Join Our Team! Five Reasons Matter is a Best Place to Work

By Danielle Conlin

If you’ve heard of Matter, you’re likely aware of our strong employee culture. It’s one of the standard questions we’re asked about during interviews and it’s our employees’ favorite question to answer.

Sure, we’ve won numerous awards throughout our 15-year tenure, have amazing office locations, and we’re growing like crazy, but do you really know why Matter is a great place to work and why we stand out amongst the rest? Here are the top five reasons (in no particular order) that Matter is continuously recognized as a Top Place to Work and why you should consider a career with us:


The People

Our culture would not be what it is today without our people. Within Matter, you will find backgrounds in journalism, liberal arts, business and economics, marketing, design and more! Our employees are smart, collaborative, hard-working, creative, fun and we truly like each other!


Helping Hands

This is our volunteering program that officially launched a few years ago. Matter encourages employees to give back to our local communities and our employees look forward to our monthly volunteering events across all offices. We’ll hit our 2018 goal of 1,000 hours by the end of October! Since its inception, the program has been recognized as a Bell Ringer award recipient and a finalist in PR News’ Agency Elite Awards.


Flexible + Summer Fridays

Throughout the year, Matter gives our employees the option to work from anywhere on Fridays- whether that be the office, their home, a coffee shop, it doesn’t matter (no pun intended). In addition, during the summer we also have Summer Fridays, which lets our employees duck out early to get a head start on their weekend. 


Employee Wellness Activities

Matter cares about the well-being of our employees, so we offer several wellness options throughout the year that include: weekly yoga and barre classes, basketball, golf, running club, hiking club, and so much more!


Career Growth and Defined Career Paths

Matter knows that providing career growth is vital to recruiting and retaining talent. Maybe you’re in PR, but want to know more about digital, or vice versa, you have those options within Matter. With our integrated model, you can have a successful career in PR, social, creative services, digital marketing and even HR. 🙂


We’re currently hiring in all of our offices. If you are considering a new job or want to know more about Matter, I encourage you to check out our current job listings and apply if something appeals to you. You won’t regret it!
