    I worked at Cadient Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people at here are wonderful. Cadient doesn't typically have entry to junior roles, creating a large staff of seasoned professionals with a diversity of experiences and skills. Also, since the technology is done in-house, you are closer to the development of projects. This gives you the benefit of learning how the technology works–not just turning over the final product to the client.

    Cadient's portfolio of projects and clients have rapidly expanded.

    A recent implementation of a "cloud" work environment allows for a nice work/life balance, especially when having children. There is an open "work-from-home" policy when needed.

    The health benefits is one of the best high-deductible plans I have ever seen.

    My direct and executive manager were responsive during any hurdles faced during my time at Cadient.

    Cons

    Cadient Group is an advertising agency. Cadient being an independent agency, the structure is a bit different. If you understand the expectations of agency life and recognize that this isn't a "networked" agency, there really isn't any surprises. Agency life is what it is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Agencies struggle with employee retention due to unclear career paths. Revamp yearly employee performance reviews with multiple touch-points throughout the year. Have managers put forth a great focus on keeping an open dialog with their employee(s) on what their projected career path is 3, 6, and 12 months out and what is needed for them to take the next step, weather it's personal or company growth.

    Marketing Strategist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Cadient Group.

    Interview Details

    There interview process was very irritating. I was contacted by an internal recruiter and was asked questions that were not relevant to the job which I was applying for. The job position it's self, changed during the hiring process. Finally, I was put in touch with one of the hiring managers in their research group. He was pretty intense with his questions. I didn't feel the fit and I guess he didn't either. The recruiter called me back and said that they thought I was better with another manager's group. They were hiring for a Sr. level position. Almost all of their employees have Sr. level titles. When I talked to the second manager, she basically made it very clear that the first manager that I spoke to worked for her. She was kind of "prime timing" me and her subordinate. Over all they seemed very "catty" and irritated. This woman asked me for information going back to high school...I'm 33. I really felt as if she was wasting my time. I have heard that they're always hiring for positions which they never fill.
