It's easy to succeed…
"What I like about working at Longbotham isn't just seeing ideas turn into reality but being involved in the creative process from start to finish. Longbotham is one of those places where you can come and immediately contribute to a project in one way or another. It is always a great feeling to look at something and know you had a part in its creation.
Once you begin working at Longbotham you realize it's like no other place that you have worked. The atmosphere is open and collaborative. Everyone is treated with respect. It's is a place where if you work hard and have good ideas, it's easy to succeed.
One of the best parts of my job is that I get to work on a wide range of projects in many industries. I could be working on a retail website in the morning and a manufacturing brochure in the afternoon. It's great to have a job that never gets boring."

Love working here!
"I have spent the past 7 years working with Longbotham and, in a word, I would say that I'm spoiled. I've had the privilege of working with many smart, talented people who were more then willing to pass on their vast knowledge and experience to me. Not only did I learn technical skills and design aesthetics, but also, something our agency is known for in our area, attention to detail. And yes, I am now a card-carrying member of the obsessive-compulsive, detail-oriented group (do you ever feel like zooming to 6400% just isn't enough?? If you don't know that Illustrator and Photoshop can zoom to 6400%, this is not the job for you!).
Another thing I love about working at Longbotham is how collaborative we are. You're as likely to work on a project in a group as you are alone. Everyone touches everyone else's files, and no one is ever concerned about taking credit for the part they did. It is, after all, about how great we can make the client look! I also love that I do something different every day. Often I change projects mid-stream as new deadlines crop up. I enjoy being able to think on my feet and challenge myself. Here at Longbotham, we like to push the envelope.
This job was an incredible learning experience for me as a new graduate who didn't know which end was up (or how to prep a file for press). It is still, 7 years later, an incredible learning experience for me. We embrace change and technology. We strive to learn new things every day. We push the constraints of design as far as we can to provide the best end product to our clients (if you think you can sit in a corner and silo all day, again, this is not the job for you).
I wake up every day, and go to work, and do something I love, with people I consider my friends. So am I spoiled? Yes! And I am so thankful I am."

The group dynamic is very supportive…
"The great thing about working at Longbotham is the many varied jobs you get to work on. Big and small. Local and national. Normal and bizarre. There is always something interesting to work on and plan for. Because Bonnie insists on high quality "everything", even the most mundane job goes out as a clever, imaginative piece that you can be proud of. There's no such thing as 'just getting something out the door'.
Another good thing about working at Longbotham is that you get to use your imagination, but in a real-world, practical business manner. The creative is both artsy and useful. Working as a team, you get exposed to different points of view and a stream of interesting ideas. Longbotham's got a great combination of individual excellence and very unselfish, collaborative group dynamics. That's what allows us to do such excellent work."

Bonnie really looks out for us…
"When I first met Bonnie, I was an independent photographer. I used to travel all over the country shooting virtual tours and specialty stills. We collaborated on a number of projects and found that we worked together really well. Not long after those first few projects were completed, she offered me a chance to work at Longbotham. I can honestly say that some of the experiences I've had while working with this company have been among the highlights of my professional career. Bonnie is absolutely devoted to her staff and goes out of her way to accommodate us. That kind of steadfast loyalty goes out to the clients too. It's pretty amazing to see her in action every day. She expects excellence and performance from her employees, but she's always right there with us, sweating the details."
