Why Reputation Partners?

What makes a great place to work? At the most fundamental level, it comes down to offering highly competitive pay and benefits. Beyond that, it’s a workplace that invests in the team’s professional development, provides everyday and long-term challenges and career opportunities, all while preserving and celebrating work-life balance.  Finally, it is the chance to do meaningful, purposeful work in a collaborative, apolitical environment that is filled with smart, talented and genuinely nice people. Reputation Partners offers all of this and more.

Work Life Balance


Learn More

  • Paid time off

    • After seven years of service, our employees can take advantage of our sabbatical policy, which allows them to take four weeks off at full pay to do anything they want.

It Matters To Us

Unlike some public relations firms that either relegate their younger employees to mundane tasks or throw them into the deep end with no support, Reputation Partners gives them the opportunity to lead, but with the consistent, hands-on support and encouragement of our senior team.

When we’re not working, you might find us volunteering, hosting a group of students or sharing a beer and cheering on our favorite sports teams.

We have a strict “no jerks” policy. Clients who mistreat our employees or colleagues who aren’t kind to one another have no place at our firm and are promptly asked to leave. Fortunately, these have been few and far between.

We’re also deeply committed to recruiting and retaining a diverse workforce. Today, more than 70% of our team represents diverse or underrepresented populations in the workplace.

Any firm can claim it has a good culture, but our proof is in the numbers: Five of our employees were with us for more than 10 years – three of them for more than 15. Over our history, we have had six “boomerangs” (former RP employees that returned to the team after leaving us for other opportunities). 

Our employees work hard during the work week but are encouraged to shut down by no later than 6:00p during the week and completely on weekends.

Here's What Our Teammates Say

Rather than continue to try summarizing RP’s culture from a singular point of view, we’ve asked our teammates to share their unique perspective on the topic. Here’s why our teammates believe Reputation Partners is a great place to work.

"Our culture centers around two important pieces: collaboration and opportunity. Everyone at RP can engage and interact – on a professional and personal level." - Andrew M.
"RP is a great place to work simply because of our people. Everyone on the team is caring, hard-working, dedicated to producing the highest quality work possible, and having fun while doing so." - Natalie W.
"The truly incredible thing about RP’s culture is that there isn’t a task too large or small for anyone at any level. We’re small and agile which allows for collaboration across levels and opportunities for individuals to really forge their own paths." - Paige B.
“I joined Reputation Partners as an Assistant Account Executive right after graduation. The advancement opportunities and mentorship at our firm have enabled me to grow my professional career and work my way up to an Account Supervisor.” - Haley H.
