Culture

It’s About the People

Allison+Partners’ culture is truly what makes us unique. Our team members are committed to living out our motto, “it’s about the work,” keeping in mind “it’s about the people” and not politics. Allison+Partners provides a culture of creative collaboration, unwavering entrepreneurialism and empowerment. This means individuals are encouraged to start new offerings, volunteer in our local communities, seek out clients they are passionate about, and create cross-office committees collaborating to provide the best services possible.

Core Values

Allison+Partners was founded to create a positive and highly entrepreneurial environment where talented people at all levels could do great work and thrive without the politics of a larger firm. Our Core Values, developed company-wide from every level of the organization, provide a common landscape both as an internal guide and as a way to describe what makes our culture special to our clients, team members, prospective employees and the industry at large. The values below are reflected in everything we do.

AEs and SAEs from around the company gather in San Francisco for Allison University, an intensive learning and team-building program.

Education at Allison+Partners

Allison University, our professional development program for staff, offers in-person training, monthly webinars, mentor matching, tuition reimbursement and employee-recognition programs to help our people reach their full potential. Our Experts’ Webinar Series is taught by staff and features successful client campaigns and new business pitches, as well as training in PR, management and computer skills.

We host in-person two-day University intensives twice a year where employees from across the agency come together with their colleagues to learn communication strategies, hone their media relations and employee management skills, and brainstorm new initiatives to improve the company. Senior team members serve as faculty, and Founders Scott Allison and Scott Pansky participate in every one of these events.
