It’s easy to see why people stay so long at PPBH. But with life a’ calling, I’m riding off into the horizon and bidding farewell to the agency I got my start at. After my two years here as a copywriter, I wish I had a montage video with an 80s ballad to commemorate the great time I’ve had here. It’s a bittersweet moment for me, but at least I have all these great memories and lessons to take with me.
Camaraderie. At PPBH, we work together and as Chuck says, “We don’t work in silos.” Both inside and outside of work, I felt like people believed in me here and that pushed me to work harder and improve my craft.
Pathfinder. People think that creative types are cool and sophisticated when in all reality we’re nothing more than nerds. So every two weeks, a secret society of dorks gather together to slay dragons, complete quests and conquer kingdoms. I’ll definitely miss playing a version of the game Dungeons and Dragons and I hope that my character, Boom, survives their future raids.
Strategy, strategy, strategy. Results, results, results. I learned how important strategy and results were here. Especially in the smaller Utah market, it’s so important that our communication services actually gave our clients solid ROI to preserve our industry.
Hilarious email chains. The workday never seems too long when you like the people you work with. The numerous funny videos sent through email were among the ways we could take a break and have fun with the people we work with. In fact, I don’t embarrass myself anymore when I play pool or foosball.
A culture of growth. Whenever we had downtime, we were encouraged to develop our skills in some way. PPBH has a subscription to a website with a never-ending supply of tutorials, not to mention training meetings and even personal advice from one professional to another.
Never-ending M&Ms and Red Vines. I blame PPBH for all my cavities. (But I also thank them for their excellent dentist and health care coverage.)
Thanks for everything, PPBH.Read More >>
