    Pros

    The people here are fantastic & really made my experience the best it could be. They're funny, smart, and creative - and very welcoming. You can feel free to ask questions and know you'll get well-thought-out answers. Everyone seems genuinely interested in their work & helping one another. This company has a lot of events & free snacks, which keeps the atmosphere fresh and exciting. And there's a plastic skeleton that finds his way to hilarious places day-to-day.

    Cons

    It can at times be difficult to organize projects when they're split between New York and Chicago, but as long as there's effective communication, it can be done.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MCD Partners (Chicago, IL) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Pretty straightforward - I took my interviewers through my portfolio site, described projects (difficulties and things I learned), and we chatted about other ux-related things (including research methods). I didn't have any practiced answers, but I did know my portfolio projects inside and out. The interview was over their video-chat application (think Skype). Pretty low-stress and informal. The recruiting people I spoke with to set up the interview were incredibly nice and helpful, and were available through email as well as phone. After my initial interview, a recruiter and I set up a call to discuss next steps - salary, hours, etc. A few days (maybe a week or so?) later, I got a call with some good news that my pay rate was going up to stay in line with New York!
