    Pros

    Marketing Werks offered the chance to work with great people, great clients and great projects. Travel and corporate perks were pretty good and fair

    Cons

    The agency has changed dramatically and lost its focus on people and the work. Hours were long and travel was extensive

    Advice to Management

    More time spent valuing the employees would ultimately create better culture and better output. Clients and staff would both benefit from improving the work environment and eliminating the fear associated with the changes

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Marketing Werks (Chicago, IL) in August 2014.

    Interview

    After being rejected in early June for the same position from the online screener, I applied again in July under the guise of "why not?" My best advice here to get in the door is apply for all "intern" positions in your area on the crossmark website because each team posts a want ad for their intern (there are upwards of 8 teams). In the middle of August I received a followup phone call from HR about an open position on their teams and had a brief phone call with their recruitment manager. Then I was scheduled for two more phone calls the next day with different senior account managers to discuss what their teams do and see which team was a better fit for me. After these two phone calls, I was invited in to have a sitdown interview with both teams that I had the phone interviews with. The in person interviews were not challenging and it mostly focused on asking about my experience in experiential marketing. The major goal of these team meetings were to see if I meshed and understood what position would be about. I received a call about a week later with an offer to intern for the team that liked me more. As an intern, I did not really see a major difference in the work at my level, interns do not get to travel and the day to day life is general marketing tasks so either team was fine by me. Overall, it was a very positive experience if you take out the time equation for the whole process.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, it was a very simple phone call and a straightforward email to sign up on the website.
