    Pros

    You get to meet and work with interesting, smart and friendly people who have similar values. Challenging, fast paced and creative environment. Fun, familial and positive culture when I was there.

    Cons

    Long hours and a lot of dedication is expected of you. Very high standards need to be met. Little pay. Hiring process is unorganized. High turn over.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Purpose (New York, NY) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online, had a phone interview followed by in-person interview. Process lasted about 3 weeks. The phone interview with their recruiter was great, very conversational yet I was able to share my accomplishments and goals while learning about the company and what they're looking for. The Senior Strategist who interviewed me in-person was very quiet and awkward and asked a lot of the textbook interview questions. I tried to bring in enthusiasm but didn't seem to work. They eventually told me they hired someone with more experience but the position is still listed as open on the website.
