    I have been working at Performics full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. Lots of responsibility handed to junior employees, allowing for quick growth/learning
    2. Client roster expands across a number of verticals (retail, healthcare, CPG, travel, insurance, technology, entertainment)
    3. Majority of the employees are driven, smart and really great to work with

    Cons

    1. Impression that the company is ran by the CFO - as a result department heads are more focused on margins and lean head count than they are on work quality and job satisfaction; this has resulted in quite a bit of burn out from employees
    2. Performance Content team is not properly staffed across accounts which makes cross-channel integration on larger accounts difficult and confusing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand the trends in feedback that are provided in exit interviews to make organizational changes. It's known that even the managers of people who leave don't even know about the feedback provided when good talent leaves the organization. Using this feedback to make changes will help with the higher than average attrition rate.

    Associate Media Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Performics.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by recruiter for a screening phone interview. After the phone call with the recruiter, had two 30-minute interviews with directors. Pretty generic interviews, not difficult at all. Mainly asked about my previous experiences, familiarity with programs, some behavioral, etc etc. In one interview, spent most time talking about the interviewer's experience, which was great in learning about company culture and the stuff I'll be doing.
    Expected to go in for an in-person interview but they offered me the position after just two phone interviews, which was a pleasant surprise.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    The salary was actually a lot higher than what the recruiter initially told me (and what I was expecting), so I didn't negotiate the salary. I asked them if I could start a bit later than what they wanted and they were very accommodating.
