    I have been working at Icon Media Direct full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Culture and environment are second to none. Strong strategic leadership. Management cares about employee well-being, satisfaction and advancement - work/life balance is a part of the philosophy. Advanced level training made readily available. Strong technological and process driven structure. Excellent pay and benefits for employees, strong work and dedication is rewarded with strong opportunity for growth. One of the top agencies with a strong Client base, lots of growth and challenges.

    Cons

    Parking if I could complain about anything - there's a medium-ish sized lot that is based on seniority, the rest park in the surrounding residential neighborhood. It's a short walk, could be worse.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for creating a wonderful and professional environment which has helped me flourish and advance my career in a top class organization. Oh, and keep the new summer half-day Fridays going forward!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Icon Media Direct.

    Interview

    The interview process is a bit lengthy, but that's how it is at solid companies. First there was a phone interview, then there was a more formal phone interview, then I came in and did the computer testing. The computer testing is not the kind of testing you may find at temp agencies where they just want to know you can open an Excel sheet. No! These tests are comprehensive and use real world examples of the exact work you'll be doing if hired. It was super easy for me, but I'm very comfortable using Excel, Pivot Tables, Word and Power Point. If you're NOT familiar or using MS Office every day, you WILL struggle and/or fail the tests. If you fail the tests, you don't get to finish the interview process, but trust me, that's a good thing. Everyone here is sharp and everything is fast paced, so if you can't figure out your way around an Excel spreadsheet, you won't make it here! After the testing, you meet with the hiring managers. Depending on which position you're applying for, there may be other senior level people you interview with and you may meet the CEO. The interview process is panel-style so you're meeting with 2-3 managers at once, which can be intimidating. Just come prepared. In total I had 2 phone interviews and 2 in-person panel interviews on 2 separate days. If they ask you to come back, it's a good thing.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview questions were pretty standard. They really want to get to know you and see how you can fit into the company and what you can bring to the table. They're looking to see if you're passionate and have an entrepreneurial mind, because that's really what the company is all about.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I got exactly what I asked for.
