Our Culture

#451WorkLifeBalance

Agency 451 offers a unique and inspired work environment where “work hard, play hard” is our formula. You don’t just live to work, there has to be some kind of balance. We keep the scales even through things, like (but not limited to): pizza Fridays, bottomless snacks, company outings, lots of cute office dogs, giant comfy bean bag chairs, employee-run committees (one of which is literally titled the “Fun Committee”) and our summer Fridays program. Plus, there’s no dress code here other than casual; we encourage our employees to feel comfortable and let their personal style shine through.

#451Incubator

We also believe in professional development and encourage employees to take part in our Incubator program; if you love your job, but also love your side hustle then we want you to take advantage of our power-house resources to help make your dream a reality. We come together as a team to help individuals participating in the Incubator program by hosting brainstorm sessions that may or may not include cocktails and apps.

#451Cares

We know that to be truly successful we must support and give back to the communities in which we live and work. As a part of our ongoing commitment to giving back, we created a program called “451 Cares” that encourages employees to volunteer one paid work day every quarter with the charity of their choice. Members of our team have utilized this day to donate time to organizations including Cradles to Crayons, The Greater Boston Food Bank, Community Servings, and Junior Achievement.

An extension of our Cares program is our Intern Non-Profit Partnership Project. Each session, interns work as a team to create a comprehensive marketing plan for a nonprofit. Partners have included Special Olympics, Interise, BINA Farm Center, Jane Doe Inc., and The Old North Foundation.
