    I have been working at Overdrive Interactive full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working with smart talented people, being able to walk into any of the founders offices and discuss an idea I have, being able to implement that idea, continued education on current marketing practices, opportunity for job growth is impressive. Overdrive allows you to make whatever position you have -- your own. Your growth is what you put into it. Easy access location and beautiful contemporary work space.

    Cons

    I have seen a lot of employees come and go and have come to conclusion that Overdrive gives some employees too much leeway. Employees that start displaying a negative attitude should be let go much sooner if their issues can not be resolved. If you need constant praise or hand holding don't apply.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more time to hire the 'right' employee, with the personality that fits your management style. Hire A Team always. You could eliminate some of the negative reviews this way.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Overdrive Interactive.

    Interview Details

    The interview with Overdrive was somewhat quick and painless. I met with 4 different employees and was offered the job on the spot. This should have thrown a red flag up immediately. Overdrive will hire anyone and "Throw them against the wall to see if they stick". Be very wary that this is a place you want to work!
