At Schaefer Ad Co., our goal is to make life better for our clients, our team, our community and ourselves. Our culture impacts every area of the agency and is rooted within every employee from the top down. Across each discipline, every person at the agency is encouraged to be their best selves — even the agency dog. That’s why Schaefer Ad Co. is more than just one person, a name on a building, or even just a place where people come to work. It is a place that fosters community, where differences are admired, and out-of-the-box ideas are encouraged. Within these four walls is an environment that demands self and team growth via exposure to new things. This mindset is what drives our agency to be an empowering place to work that always strives to maintain a fun, engaging and collaborative environment.

Whether it is through our various Schaefer outings or our internal kitchen happy hours, at Schaefer individuality is celebrated at every opportunity. The result of this type of environment is a place that every employee is proud to call home.
