Phenomenal team culture. Fun company, fulfilling work, and everyone from the top to bottom works to develop you personally and professionally. If you enjoy building relationships that last, high-pass and energetic work, and kids than stop whatever you are doing.
Pay is low. While this does help weed out people who are not up to the high standards the company expects, the salary cap hurts those who truly love what they do, work extremely hard, but can't move up because limited growth or location rsstrictions.
Politics can also play a huge role in your ability to move upward depending in what city you are in.
Advice to Management
Keep city leaders accountable for what they pay their employees and who they promote. Some people should be paid more to reflect their results, and consistent results should also be taken into account when promoting someone, not because they are your favorite.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Booster Enterprises in April 2014.
The initial contact came from an hourly employee of the company who knew one of my family members. It was explained to me that new hires are found in a grassroots manner, allowing current employees to explain more about Booster and to give access to job openings.
I received a phone call from the HR director, who asked about me and my college experienced. My portfolio had already been reviewed. I had to fill out personality surveys and provided 3 references, who were expected to fill out a similar survey about me.
I was then asked to come to Alpharetta for a 1:1 interview at the "home office". I drove 6 hours to the office, and interviewed with my potential direct supervisor. He seemed uncomfortable asking me interview questions, which made it hard for me to relate to him and connect personally. I was then given as much time as I needed to create a mock poster for one of their current marketing campaigns. I was provided about half of the artwork, and was told that it was an exercise in document layout. "Take as much time as you need, make the final piece print-ready." was the instruction I was given. I took about 1 hour from concept to final PDF, and was then promptly thanked and shown the door. At this point I assumed that I bombed the interview because the whole experience was very awkward.
I then had a follow-up phone interview with the director of the department, where we talked more about my work experience and personality. I was given a freelance project that took about 5 hours at the rate of my choosing. At this point I was told that I was competing against one other applicant. It was about a week after this call that I was told that I was not getting the job.
Overall, not a bad process. I would have like the job, but I don't feel robbed of the position. The work seemed fun and engaging, and the employees seemed like really fun and energetic individuals and teams.
