What You Should Know About Us
We always want to meet creative types. Problem solvers. Relationship builders. People who embrace the challenges of marketing and find value in the type of work we do for our clients.
When people enjoy what they do and where they do it, they do it better and with more passion. So, if you’re interested in joining our team, it’ll be just as important to us that you love who we are as an agency and as a workplace.
MadAveGroup was named one of Ohio's Best Employers in 2013 (details here) and voted "Best Ad Agency" by the readers of Toledo City Paper for 2021 and 2022 (details here).
We were also named a Top Workplace in 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023 by Energage, a company that studies successful organizations and then applies what they learn to help other companies improve their culture. (Read more.)

Company culture and employee satisfaction are two of our top concerns. And we’ve found the best way to keep employees looking forward to Monday mornings is to not only make sure their experience and skill sets are good matches to their positions, but to ensure their personalities are a good fit for their roles. We have a 10-minute profile that helps us do just that.
So, if you’re interested in having a conversation about career possibilities at MadAveGroup, the first step is to take a few minutes to fill out this survey:
We’ll use your profile results to match you with the best-fitting role here at MadAveGroup.
We’re loose and comfortable, but serious about what we do. You’ll see a dog or two walking around the office, or a couple of guys throwing a ball down a hallway just as often as you’ll see glowing client testimonials being shared with the entire staff via email.
When you're having fun, coming to work is a pleasure. And when work is a pleasure you commit to it every day. Sure, our employees benefit from our environment, but our clients do, too.
Our corporate ladder is more like a stepladder. That means you’ll have easy access to everyone else in the building, no matter what their title.
“One of the reasons I like MadAveGroup is that I have the ability to propose change and have my voice heard. Everyone’s opinion is valued within our organization, and we’re able to bounce ideas off anyone without worry.”
Brian Burk, Senior Account Manager
As a small company, we not only welcome everyone’s input, we expect it. You can grow ideas and affect change here, for our clients and our agency. That’s good news if making a difference is important to you.
“You help make this part of my job easier and our department look good. Thank you for the consistently excellent service.”
Yes, the world of marketing is constantly changing, so we’re always thinking about what’s new and possible.
But there are core principles of sales, communication, customer service, and even writing and design that will always be important. We spend time both developing the new ideas and reinforcing the basics.
We have an on-site gym, plus a certified personal trainer on staff. Take up to an hour each workday to exercise. And when you meet certain goals during our quarterly Fitness Days, you could win bragging rights, medals and extra cash!
How many agencies have a full, private bar and game room in-house? The MadAve Social Club is downstairs, just steps away from our offices. Need a break? Enjoy a game of Foosball, Darts, Shuffleboard, Chess, Shut The Box or Crokinole. Want a change of scene? Take your work to the Club. After hours, you can unwind with your favorite beverage, enjoy music and conversation on a comfortable couch, or continue the workday’s brainstorming in the more casual setting. There’s a stage for Karaoke, too. (You don’t even have to sing well to use it.) It’s no wonder the MadAve Social Club is the favorite place to meet for our clients and team members.
Like exotic, all-expenses-paid vacations? There’s one available each year to our team members who meet their individual benchmarks. It’s called President's Club, and it’s a very popular perk around here.
Like food? You’ll enjoy our annual chili cook-off (and the shiny trophy if you win), as well as our pancake breakfast, wienie roast and holiday potluck lunches.
Like fun? Two of the many ways we have it: the MadAveGroup Olympics and our downtown scavenger hunt. These annual events may bring out the competitor in you. They’ll definitely build your sense of teamwork and camaraderie.
Throw in the family Christmas party, our annual Kick-Off Meeting and after-party, the occasional Toledo Walleye and Mud Hens games and other assorted activities throughout the year and you’ll see why we were named one of the best places to work in Ohio.
