I have been working at Compete, Inc full-time (More than a year)Doesn't RecommendNeutral OutlookNo opinion of CEODoesn't RecommendNeutral OutlookNo opinion of CEO
Flexible schedules if needed, summer flex hours 15-20 PTO depending on title and tenure ~9 paid holidays annually plus some early closures 401k with 3% match Health, vision and dental with reasonable costs and options Other insurance available HSA available Mass transit costs paid for commuting Assistance with some childcare costs (20 discounted days I believe) SOME paid maternity/paternity time (see cons) Bonus pool (see cons)
Maternity leave has to be the minimum.. Most mothers have to use PTO because it doesn't allow for enough time. And even then, many then have to go on disability in order to have a 3-4 month leave. Paternity leave should also be more generous to offer family support. Bonus pool is dependent on a business and team performance. It's either funded or not funded annually and then you are awarded your amount based on team and individual performance. There could very well be a year (like we recently had) where we all worked incredibly hard but the company didn't make its revenue goals so we did not receive any bonuses. The bonus is discussed upfront as part of your salary, so it's really painful not to receive it.
Advice to Management
Have a better maternity leave, even if that means adding to what kantar/wpp have stipulated. The current model is unrealistic and it's ridiculous to expect new parents to return to work so soon-- or rely on saved PTO and disability benefits. This is a factor in employee retention among those looking to have children in the next several years. We need a company that will support us during that process.
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Compete, Inc (Boston, MA) in June 2015.
Light phone screening followed by an invite to an event with a round robin of interviews. Was a really good experience, learned a lot about the company and met a lot of people. After the event they emailed me a test to get back as soon as I could. Followed that with a final interview day which consisted of 4 interviews from 6 total people. Overall smooth and a good experience.
