I worked at BuzzBee full-time (less than an year)Pros
The small company environment allows for flexibility, creativity, wearing many hats and an opportunity to be involved in the business at many levels. Overall, I would say pay and benefits were fair, possibly even above other agencies.
I really enjoyed the ability to work from home and have a good work/life balance. A big pro to BuzzBee is that you get to work with the Creative Team with some of the brightest, smartest people in the business!
BuzzBee definitely tripped, feel down, and now is back on two solid feet as new life and new clients have been acquired. I worked at the company during tough times, but it was great to see how people formed a team and were given a chance by the leadership team to perform. Acquiring new clients have helped chance the work and has allowed for a new dynamic to form (for the better).Cons
I was often unsure of processes because it felt like they were changing often, but I feel that was also related to the evolution of the business.
The Microsoft book of business can be a tough one and the clients are demanding, but I wouldn't say that is a fault of BuzzBee - just a fair warning.Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Application Details
I applied in-person. The process took a week – interviewed at BuzzBee in September 2012.Interview Details
My interview at BuzzBee had three steps - quick phone interview to discuss the job responsibilities, face-to-face informational-type interviews with two BuzzBee employees and job-specific interviews with the hiring manager and a couple of people that I now work with. The interviews were a mix of general questions and scenario type role-play questions - 'help me define my business requirements', 'help me understand the components of a proposal', 'help me convince my management team why we need your marketing solution'. BuzzBee employees were all very friendly and I enjoyed the interview process and BuzzBee's awesome offices. The firm's HR Manager contacted me the day after my interviews to discuss an offer for the role that I now have.Interview Questions

- Nothing 'difficult' but they did make me step into a client scenario and act as if I were a BuzzBee employee. It was actually a fun interview experience. Answer Question
