About Big Buzz:
At Big Buzz, we work hard, play hard and rest hard. We respect one another’s time and energy, and therefore we are all committed to getting tasks done on time, and the right way. We are all about positivity, open-mindedness and stating our intentions to the universe for what we want. And because we are all so dedicated to the work we produce and the clients we serve, we realize the importance of taking the time to relax and refuel. Every day we meditate for 20 minutes, all of us claiming a space on our conference room floor for optimum relaxation. We have a couch in our office so that people can read, watch a webinar or just take a break to watch a Saturday Night Live skit or two, and working on nights and weekends is strictly prohibited – unless it’s an emergency. But as we say here, “It’s just marketing.” We do not downplay the role we serve in our clients’ lives and businesses, but we know that no one has ever suffered death by marketing.
