    Pros

    Great location, smart people surround you. I did sales support. You're involved in pitching to clients. Good ideas and great attention from top brands.

    Cons

    There is a massive chasm between the good ideas and implementation. As someone educated at a top university, I was personally hired to add to the sales support division. None of my experience or exposure was ever called upon despite my access to highly influential brands. Horrendous abuse of employees' time, especially younger ones. The worst part? Compensation is exceptionally low and management does not spend time building a close cohesive team. They took us all one by one and let us go from the job without any prior warning and when the fault was with the spending of the upper management itself.

    Advice to Management

    Spend less on the company, more on your employees. Invest in people. Reward them. DO NOT BE SKETCHY. TRY BEING HONEST INSTEAD. You have a good brand that is fast becoming anathema to most people.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at IB Times (New York, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    This was a rigorous interview process to say the least. After meeting with six different people all at different times over the course of two hours, the questions ranged from basic to in-depth. Most of the questions were straightforward however the editor-in-chief seemed keen on making his portion of the interview unbearable, uncomfortable and very intense. If you like feeling bullied and under valued, this is the place for you.
