Work, Play & Puppies
Work is almost as important as play at LevLane…almost.
On my last day, I walked into the 4th floor office of the Wanamaker Building and was greeted by familiar faces. Mostly.
Today happened to be the photoshoot for the agency’s new website and the team brought their puppies in as part of the shoot! The office was barricaded with play pens for the pooches and walking around the agency was like walking through a petting zoo! A Labradoodle in the Traffic department, a Pug playing with the Art Directors, a Maltese by Media’s side, two Pitbull mixes wrestling next to the Account team and a Yorkshire Terrier licking the fingernails of one of the Copywriters – needless to say, it was quite a pleasant surprise!
Break Out of Your Shell
Working in an agency environment provides a lot of perks. There are social outings, wellness seminars, and social interactions with different agencies and professionals. All of these events provide great networking and learning opportunities you normally don’t get in the office. When you’re in the office you get to learn the basics of the job but there really isn’t time to pick the brains of your superiors for advice.

“Hey! I helped work on that ad!”
I have been interning in the account management department of Tierney for just about three months now, and I must say that the experience is everything I imagined it would be. I came into this internship looking to get a feel for the agency environment and to solidify my belief that I would fit best in the account services department within that environment. I am a little over half-way finished my internship here, but both of those things have already happened for me.
Tierney is a large, full-service advertising agency, with departments such as account services, media, creative, PR, production, traffic, and more. Working here, I have really gotten a sense for how work flows through an agency, and what my role as an account executive one day is going to be within that cycle. I have also gotten a sense of not only the different job types there are in an agency, but of the different personality types there are as well. That being said, I am confident that because of my natural tendency towards leading others and organization as well as my strong customer service and people skills, high energy levels and ability to multi-task, I will be most successful in account services. On that same hand, I would hope that day I will eventually be able to transition from a senior account executive to some sort of a cross between an account supervisor and strategic planner, as some of the upper level managers and VP’s here have managed to do.
Thus far, I must say that my favorite part of working for Tierney has been seeing or hearing ads that I helped work on out in their actual media being run. It is so cool to see the final products and to be able to appreciate all of the planning and strategizing and production and hard work all around that has gone into them! Some advertising that you all may be familiar with that Tierney does and that I have helped out on includes that of PECO, TD Bank and Independence Blue Cross.
