    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Convertro full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Coworker tend to monopolize conversations, dismiss input from others and make decisions without first considering all the facts. The inexperienced college graduates are happy to work here. The learning curve is capped, and the workload is light

    Cons

    Dealing with a know-it-all can be exhausting and there are times when your best response is to ignore their ‘helpful’ hints as much as possible. They can often be close-minded as well–which means they can become a severe impediment to the creative process by blocking any idea other than their own. They simply know an idea either will or won’t work. Some know-it-alls can come across as opinionated, aggressive, brusque and even loud–all traits that won’t win over a lot of people at the office–and in fact can be easily construed as bullying behavior. Upper management moved on to bigger and better things.

    Advice to Management

    Don't bother posting fake reviews, because AOL already purchase you!

    Product Manager - Business Affairs and Operations Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Convertro (Santa Monica, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I should know better than to trust 3rd party recruiters. Against my better judgement I let one set up a phone interview with Converto. I had 4 phone interviews in one day, which was basically a waste of time. 3 of the 4 were regular interviews with otherwise nice people and relevant questions. The entire company apparently works from home, and not in a good way, because there were dogs barking in the background the whole time. The last guy was a founder I think and also asked me the stupid question about the balls. I thought this guy was a total idiot himself and none of them seemed to actually know what the role of Product Manager actually consists of. Also, this is basically AOL, but they represent themselves as a start up, which they certainly are not. Skip this lame company.

    • If you had 10 blue balls and 10 red balls and 5 bins how do you arrange the balls to maximize your chances of pulling out a red ball?   1 Answer
