We asked the workplace culture experts at Great Place to Work, the longtime partner for Fortune’s list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For, to identify the best workplaces in the advertising and marketing industry in the U.S. To compile this year’s ranking, more than 4,000 employees were surveyed about their work experience. They answered questions about how frequently they encounter behaviors that create a great workplace, which include management’s honesty and ethics, camaraderie among employees, and fair and respectful treatment and clear expectations from management. Here are the 10 employers that ranked the highest — and that are Great Place to Work Certified. In their own words, here are a few examples of how these firms keep workers happy.

Everyone here is so supportive and helpful it feels like a second family,” says an employee at this Rochester, N.Y.-based firm.

“This is by far the best place I’ve ever worked. Everybody is really friendly and seem genuinely happy to be here.

I’ve never felt like I’ve had to choose between my career and my personal life since I’m given more time off than I usually even use. I just can’t say enough good things about this company and I feel extremely lucky to be here,” says an employee.
