CJ Affiliate has a great product and provides great value, but the true strength of this company lies in its people. CJ Affiliate takes great pride in its employees and in turn they are extremely proud to work here.
With Thanksgiving just a few days away I thought it would be a perfect time to reach out to some of my fellow employees and see why they are thankful to work at CJ Affiliate.
"I'm thankful for the fun, collaborative atmosphere that my team provides because it fosters creativity in our everyday problem solving and trust in one another."
– Adrian Arcilla, Associate Software Engineer, West Lake Village, CA
Work-life balance is a high priority at CJ. We pride ourselves in being dedicated and focused while also taking time to let loose with our coworkers! Each team goes on quarterly outings, like wine tasting or bowling, and we also have larger events where the whole office goes to the beach or celebrates the holidays together. We take delivering excellent service and results very seriously, but not ourselves—from funny stories, inside jokes, and little pranks, you'll hear us laughing throughout the office every day!
"CJ provides the ability to get a 10 minute medical consultation over the phone for anything that may be affecting you, which is a real value."
– Chris Bass, Advertiser Account Director, San Francisco, CA
As a full-time employee of CJ, you get great medical, dental, and vision coverage, including an online option where you can consult with a doctor from your tablet or smartphone rather than going in for a visit! You also get flexible time off, 401k matching, and fitness club reimbursements! We have a great employee stock purchase plan (ESPP), and we also have optional group, home and pet insurance plans. We also motivate each other to be healthy and active by competing in company-wide step challenges, so bring your A-game!
"I appreciate that my company supports my charity efforts by matching donations that are made by employees."
– Ali Davis, Associate Marketing Manager, New York, NY
Another priority at CJ is making sure we help out those in need in our communities throughout the year. During our "Summer of Service", we hold fundraisers such as ice cream sundae socials, bake sales, and participate in things like Habitat for Humanity homebuilding, and food and clothing drives. On top of that, our parent company, Alliance Data Systems, matches all donations our employees give to charitable organizations. Last year, ADS employees logged a combined 18,375 hours of community service!
"Life is better when you work by the beach."
– Ryan Burkley, Publisher Account Representative, Santa Barbara, CA
CJ is fortunate to have office locations in some of the most exciting and beautiful U.S. cities and in the EU. CJ started in sunny Santa Barbara, California, and our other offices are in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, Westborough, and New York City! Nearly all of our office locations have been recently remodeled, and boast bright, modern architecture and open floor plans. Most offices have some relaxing and fun spaces as well, such as rooms with foosball tables or Wii gaming systems.
"I always feel empowered by CJ leadership to grow in my role and department."
– Gillian Murphy, Lead Client Support Specialist, Westborough, MA
At CJ, there are always opportunities for growth and change, whether it is moving up in your given department or moving to another department that may better suit your talents or interests. We coach all of our employees to take things to the next level, and each employee has free access to thousands of hours of online training courses. In addition, there are numerous opportunities within the other business units in the Alliance Data family, from Conversant, to Epsilon, etc. It is also common to transfer between office locations if you need to move or simply decide you want to switch things up.
As for me, I know the number one reason I'm grateful to work at CJ Affiliate is because of the people. They really are some of the best and brightest in the industry. And when we're not working, we actively spend time together! Work hard, play hard has never been a truer statement.
If you'd like to join in on the fun and be part of a team that will support you, inspire you, and push you to be the best version of yourself, apply today!
