The Transformation from Normal to Not So Much


The individuals we have in-house all have their own weird and unique qualities. It’s why working at our internet marketing and advertising company is so exciting and unpredictable. However, those same employees also have their own unique ways of portraying themselves and talking about the community we work in. Take Neha for example, our web developer. The following is her perspective of Annie and the workplace she currently works in. Her specialty being in code, rather than content writing, we’ve decided to provide an accompanying translation of her perspective.

Neha Pandey – Web Developer
I currently work as a Web Developer at Austin advertising agency Rock Candy Media. And, having worked and interacted with Annie for almost a month, it is difficult for me to fully describe Annie, the boss.
– I currently work as a Web Developer at Austin advertising agency Rock Candy Media. Having worked and interacted with Annie for almost a month, I still have no idea if she is from this planet. I find it difficult to describe her, as her explosive energy seems to be fueled by 7 oz cans of Sprite and Juul pods.

Annie is the most amazing boss. Your help has made everyone’s job much easier and more fun. I really appreciate your time and effort.
– Annie knows what she is doing. For her, lending assistance comes in the form of impassioned speeches where you don’t know whether to be scared s***less or inspired to join a sub-Saharan anti-poaching unit. Her presence has made everyone’s job a lot more random and a lot less boring.

Annie has several traits described below that make the workplace engaging, challenging, and interesting.
– Annie is like a freakin’ pandora’s box. You don’t know what the hell she’s going to bring to the table. Whatever it is, it tends to make the workplace more of a lively, thought-provoking, and crazy place.

Client Focus:
Annie has an unwavering focus on understanding the client business and doing everything possible to help our clients. Her client-focused approach is evident in our brainstorming discussions and it’s what makes RCM one of the top advertising agencies in Austin, Texas.
– Annie talks to clients like she would talk to a good friend at a sports bar – unfiltered, unapologetic, and completely off the wall. Her client-focused approach is evident in the highly engaging and often inappropriate brainstorming discussions.

Open Discussion:
Annie encourages open discussion and walk-in culture at the workplace. You could walk by anybody’s desk with a question and discuss the issue at hand. It is a flat organization structure.
– Annie has very few (read: no) restrictions and limitations on inter-office dialogue. Conversations on favorite pornographic genres are not only welcome but encouraged, even on the first day of work.

Try New Things:
Annie is not afraid to try out new technologies and frameworks as long as one has a strong justification.
– Last week Annie bought a remote control flying shark. Why does she need a remote control flying shark.

Fun in the Workplace:
We sometimes play games in the workplace to relax and to help create a strong camaraderie among co-workers.
– We’re having an aerial silk dancer come into the office next week. We’ll see how that turns out.

The fact of the matter is that working at RCM is different. So stay tuned for the next entry in our “People Don’t Believe Our Boss Exists” series to keep up with all the different perspectives and people that make our Austin advertising agency so great.
