General Summary

Team One, a division of Saatchi & Saatchi, is a full-service, advertising agency specializing in aspirational brands headquartered in Los Angeles, California, with offices in Atlanta, Chicago, New York and Dallas.

In addition to Lexus and the Lexus Dealer Association, Team One has a diverse portfolio focusing on aspirational brands, which has included Dacor, The Ritz-Carlton, Haagen-Dazs International, Indian Motorcycle and 2K Games.

You will have the opportunity to become immersed in the craft of creating marketing and communication solutions for a global roster of high-profile clients. At Team One, every facet of brand communications is developed under one roof, from broadcast television to Web development to branded events and experiences.

Creating an environment that inspires great ideas is something we’re pretty passionate about. So we are thrilled to say we’ve placed #27 (out of 50 U.S.-based advertising and media companies!) in Advertising Age’s Best Places to Work AND #53 (out of 100 U.S.-based companies!) in Outside magazine’s Best Places to Work. These are national awards that are dedicated to celebrating the best and most dynamic work experiences across the country. 

This is the THIRD time we have made Advertising Age's list, and the SECOND time we’ve made Outside’s. Team One is the only L.A. agency on Outside’s magazine’s list, and one of only two companies in L.A overall. Candidates are given the chance to work alongside seasoned professionals in a wide variety of disciplines, including:

  1. Account Management / Client Services - Responsible for the management of agency work and relationships with clients.
  2. Production - Responsible for the production of integrated content creation across multiple platforms, including broadcast, digital, print and social media. 
  3. Media Planning / Communications - Responsible for planning the purchase of ad space for clients. Planners decide when and where ads should be placed and then negotiate rates for ads.
  4. Strategic Planning – Responsible for researching consumer truths and insights that help guide the agency’s creative work, ensuring the work will be relevant to consumers and effective in the marketplace.
  5. Strategic Analytics – Responsible for using various tools to prepare business strategies by evaluating the opportunities and challenges faced by the company as it moves forward in the marketplace.

The Team One Intern Program will provide real advertising experience, opportunities to contribute to award-winning work, respectable résumé padding, and all the Agency Kitchen leftovers you can eat.

We will have a weekly speaker series where you will have the opportunity to interact with our leadership team and learn how they got to where they are today.
