    I worked at Red Herring


    Branding and reputation. Leading edge in the business of technology arena. Contacts and networking potential. Deal making. Great insight into C-level executive world. Great experience as a formative step in the industry.


    Mostly in a reactive mode as a company. Not harnessing well the huge potential it could have as a business model. Slightly old or out of date managerial structure. Not much potential in terms of personal career growth. Not adding extra value, neither on a personal nor a professional level, to retain best employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve information sharing and learn how to better delegate task across all levels from top to bottom. Adopt a more dynamic way of coping with market changes.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Red Herring.

    Interview Details

    Applied through school's website, got their email invitation for an interview, it was a phone interview, and the interviewer seemed to be less prepared than I was. When asked about the structure of the company, the person said everyone does a little bit of everything, which got me concerned about their specialization and efficiency.

    A second round interview came weeks later. It was a department head, a very nice person, and we had an enjoyable conversation. But from our conversation, I sensed this company is kind of struggling (and my later research proved this point).
