atLarge, Inc., a digital advertising company in downtown Sarasota, rewards creative employees with innovative benefits. Founded in 2004 by Anand Pallegar, the company's work environment reflects the creativity in work product that clients expect. From the foosball table in the office to the company's dog-friendly policy, this is not your typical workplace.
The company's success means four jobs will be added in 2011 to the current 15. While employees don't have official titles, Amanda Eyer of atLarge
says the company plans to hire a developer, project manager, customer service representative and a senior marketing manager.
"These will not be their official titles, but these are the positions we are looking to fill," Eyer says. "We are looking for people who are passionate about what they do, are not afraid of change, and are focused on our client's needs."
Eyer says the company is hiring due to the addition of several new clients, as well as an increase in projects from existing clientele. "Most of the growth is coming from new clients, however, at least 45 percent of our workload is coming from existing clients who are engaging us in multiple projects simultaneously," Eyer says.
While the workload is heavy for this growing company, Eyer says atLarge offers its employees the benefits of work-life balance.
"We offer employees flexibility, because everybody here works so hard sometimes you need to take a walk or take a break and that is OK," Eyer says. "Employees are allowed to bring their dog to work. Having dogs around makes the office better, they put everyone in a better mood, which provides a relaxed atmosphere."
