J. Walter Thompson has been pioneering brands since 1864. We go where others only dare. We pioneer forward, rebelling against convention. We do this with bravery, ambition and just the right amount of swagger. We tap into our 150-plus years of brand-building wisdom to build brands that last as long as we have.
What We Do
People. Culture. Commerce.
If our work doesn’t move the dial against three metrics, we crumple it up, throw it in the bin and start all over. Our work has got to change the way people think, feel and act. That’s when culture starts to shift. And when culture shifts, it creates room for brands to grow.
Why We Do It
Pioneers are hungry. We are restless, never satisfied. We respect the need for help on our journey, and reach out to collaborate. We value the significance that a new perspective can bring. We constantly challenge ourselves and those around us.
We’re completely focused on the work.
Work that drives our clients’ businesses. Work that enables brands to adapt to an ever-shifting world. Work that is creative, aspirational and responsible. Work that shapes the world.
Here, we value difference.
Different points of view. Different perspectives. Different ideas. And we work to make sure that every voice is heard. We look for the best people from around the world who are fierce, hungry and will work passionately, with generosity to advance the best ideas on behalf of our clients. We aim to be a magnet for collaborators, curious thinkers and courageous inventors.
