    I worked at Formula PR full-time (more than a year)


    This is a fast paced environment full of smart and talented people. It is always a great idea to learn in a challenging environment. This being my first real job out of college, it really gave me a great introduction to the working world of PR and allowed me to work on some great clients and projects.

    Formula really does care about their employees and works to make life at the company as enjoyable as possible. You really get out what you put in. While the expectations are high, the rewards can be as well in terms of promotion and company social events.


    Very high expectations. I have noticed that for some, especially upper management, the work life balance can be a challenge. This seems to be in the nature of the industry as a whole. You just need to be a hard working individual to thrive at a company like Formula

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Formula PR in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very causal. I had a one on one meeting with an account executive and we had a very friendly conversation as we walked through my resume. The questions were standard and I wasn't caught off guard by anything. Normally, they conduct a writing test that to my knowledge is very standard as well. I didn't have to do this as I provided them with writing samples ahead of time.
