Marketing is hard.
It takes a lot of knowledge and effort to put together a good marketing strategy, not to mention the time and further effort it takes to follow through on that strategy, check up on your progress, iterate on and refine your plan, etc, etc, so on and so forth. Frankly, the whole thing can be exhausting.
That’s why a lot of businesses don’t do it — they pay someone else to do it for them.
Marketing and advertising companies fill an important niche in the business world, especially given the increasing ways that companies tend to specialize. As a result, there are a lot of marketing companies out there nowadays, but this raises an important question. Which of these companies is the best for employees to work for?
We decided to hone in on just one city for this list — namely, Omaha. Using company scores from websites that aggregate reviews like GlassDoor and Indeed as a baseline, we created our own list of some of the best companies to work for that were based within a 30-mile commute of Omaha, NE.
The full list can be found further down, but first, here’s a quick top ten.
Does your company make the top fifteen? Read on to the full list to find out.
