Account Executive Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 months - interviewed at DigitasLBi in March 2014.
Interview Details – It was very straight forward. I interviewed with three people, and I was asked questions that aligned with what I researched beforehand. Overall it was not as intimidating an experience as I would have expected

Analyst, Strategy & Analysis Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at DigitasLBi in May 2014.
Interview Details – Pretty standard interview process at the beginning. phone interview, asking about your past experience and relevant skills; 4 back to back interviews in San Francisco office, with questions from experience, behaviors, to analytics and case study. what was a bit different from other reviews that i saw on glassdoor was that there were another two Skype interviews with analysts in Boston office as well. the whole process went pretty smooth, except that after they informed me that i passed the phone screening, they invited me to come in the next day. i did feel rushed, but didn't want the opportunity to slide away. so i had six interviews in two days without any preparation. after the interviews were over, the communication was over, too. nobody informed me about anything for a month until i emailed several people that i was in contact with. wouldn't it be more professional if they could take initiative to tell me about the result? they rushed me in and then left me in dark. a lot of respect, huh?

SEM Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 4 months - interviewed at DigitasLBi in March 2014.
Interview Details – I interviewed with 4 people, 2 from each different team and all different positions- as they wanted to make sure I fit in with one of the groups before being hired. They asked me about my background, what training I had for the position (which I had none), and to share a time when I had worked in a team/group and how it went. Everyone was very friendly and seemed happy in their current position

Interview Details – Recruiter reached out via email.

Negotiation Details – Phone calls and emails with HR and in the end, I was able to get additional vacation days, however it was only valid for the first year and was dropped the second year because of how it was "coded" in the system. This was a little sneaky on HR's part because you were led to believe that the new total number was your vacation days going forward.
Strategy and Analysis Intern Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at DigitasLBi in February 2014.
Interview Details – I spoke to four separate members of the S&A team, three of which were purely behavioral evaluations to assess how well I would fit at the company. The fourth was a case study in which the interviewer provided initial information about a company that wanted to expand its services, and asked me to walk through the steps I would take to make that happen for them.
Interview Question – The case study was stressful because I had no idea what was coming. It ended up being a relatively simple case, so it turned out alright. Be prepared to quickly analyze some basic data about whatever company they give you (charts, pie-graphs, exposure, etc.). Answer Question
