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


    Engaging people and innovative minds, the culture is unique and we are encouraged to give feedback, support one another and offer suggestions on any topic. The associates are caring, challenging and so talented. Centered around client-based teams makes for better servicing a client. Internal competition is erased as each discipline (PR, MEDIA, Copy writing, Acct Mgt., Social, digitial, etc) is represented on each client team. Very collaborative.


    Growing too fast, the space will be limiting later as we are at full capacity.

    Interview Details

    It was the easiest, more laid back interview I've ever experienced.
    I was first contacted by their HR recruiter. He was very straightforward, was willing to speak immediately to their very distinct environment and their benefits, and was very open about how it was a collection of strong personalities.

    I then went into a large panel interview with their other interactive producers, their COO, art directors, and developers. What looked to be a panel of jurors became a very warm and direct bunch. Their questions all had merit and I appreciated their directness. Plus, the majority of them all had very good senses of humor.

    One bit I would recommend is understanding their overall philosophy on "Pyramids are Tombs."
