    I have been working at Firstborn full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great place to work if you want to do some serious work.

    It has a no-bull approach to doing the work that needs to be done.

    People with egos or negative attitudes are quickly taken care of. That nonsense doesn't fly at Firstborn; the company is a single team.

    Flat hierarchy and attitude; no one really cares about one's title (they're mostly for clients). I barely know the titles of the people around me.

    Still keeping corporative baloney to a minimum.

    Feels like family, if you approach it with the same attitude.

    Cons

    Not much guidance for newcomers, especially people that needs to be managed or to adapt to the culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up. Seriously.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Firstborn in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Very general and easy. Questions mostly are about your previous experience. They are trying to get a sense of what kind of person you are and if you will be a good fit in their company. They are mostly young talented Publicist that work their and they want to make sure you will be an asset.
