Location: New York, New York
Digs: There are a few offices partitioned with glass walls and doors, but most of the staff sits together in two open spaces. There’s also a common space where teams can meet and brainstorm ideas, and a lounge with couches, an oversized ottoman, and a TV (and a Wii). Mfa clients are also an integral part of the décor. Snowboards and surfboards hang on the walls, and a free standing bike rack showcases a rotating variety of Schwinn, Cannondale, GT, and Mongoose Bicycles.
Culture: Mfa employees work hard pitching products and athletes, but the staff is also free to set their own hours. Employees often take advantage by getting in a workout at Soul Cycle, Flywheel, or Stacy’s Bootcamp, and many employees take advantage of a corporate membership opportunity at Equinox, which is located across the street from the office. Other staff take runs through Central Park or along the East or Hudson Rivers. And when they’re not working or exercising, Mfa employees give back, helping the homeless develop job skills through Coalition for the Homeless.
Sweet Perks: All full-time employees receive a bicycle, not to mention frequent tickets to Yankee Stadium, both Summer and Winter Olympics, and the U.S. Open of Tennis and Surfing.
