Not only is the work and industry extremely interesting, every person's experience and opinion matters. Management listens and reacts. We are able to help build and manage this company together which makes all the difference in the world. It's not just a 9-5 job. It's more like a second family.
There are never enough hours in a day so you will have to find and set your own work-life balance. The teams are small which makes balancing time and resources absolutely critical.
Advice to Management
Continue communicating and working with the teams to develop policies and procedures so we can continue to work from a standard set of expectations. Balance growth with maintaining the type of company culture you want. Hiring the right employees is critical but sometimes bigger isn't always better.

- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Acumium (Madison, WI) in October 2014.
My experience was a little unique, because I had two interview processes: the position I ended up accepting was not the one I initially interviewed for. For the position I ultimately took, interview was a combination of 1:1 conversation with the CEO and a tryout. Tryout consisted of a creative/design briefing on-site, followed by my doing work on a hypothetical project on my own time over about a week's time, and then an on-site review of the work by members of the team who would be consuming it. I believe the tryout model is used for many, if not most, positions at Acumium these days. I like the model, because I think it allows both the employer and potential employee to get a sense for each other in a way that a standard Q&A interview doesn't.
