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

    Pros

    - amazing work environment (NY office was just redone and beautiful, open space) - employees are happy to work there, they do a lot to ensure there is a great work/life balance - A LOT of PTO days and company holidays

    Cons

    - mindless work - low pay - smaller offices do not get as much new business - promotions/raises do not happen frequently

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Initiative.

    Interview

    A phone interview with the HR person first, then scheduled the 1 on 1 interview with different teams on the same day. It was very efficient and productive. Then the HR came back to me with their decision pretty fast.
