Barkley has offices in Kansas City, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, with additional field offices across the nation. Barkley is a thriving, creative work-place. In fact, the agency has been named one of the best places to work in Kansas City by The Kansas City Business Journal the last three years. At the agency’s downtown headquarters, in the historic TWA building, you’ll find events for “mustache contests”, ping pong tournaments, and beer on tap (hey, it’s advertising). Our location has personality, too. The former headquarters of TWA, its got a three-story-tall rocket on the roof (originally placed there by Howard Hughes) and has meeting rooms named The Apollo Theater and Asteroids (complete with the vintage arcade game). We have a distinct lack of offices, so senior executives are accessible. In an industry that thrives on ideas, Barkley recognizes its people are its best asset, and rewards them accordingly. Barkley’s culture, beliefs and operations are focused intently on contributing to the greater good. Whether it is using the power of its services or the power of its people, Barkley engages in a variety of projects that seek to benefit others. In fact, giving back is so engrained in Barkley’s culture that every employee is given two days above and beyond vacation to volunteer for a cause of their choice. Barkley’s commitment to corporate social responsibility extends beyond our own partners. The agency is one of the nation’s leading experts on cause branding.
