    Fun, great people and great view


    LONG hours due to bad decision making.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut the older crew and get some fresh faces in there.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Riney.

    Interview Details

    The recruiter first contacted me via email. We then had a short phone interview. After that I interviewed on-site with four employees, one after another.

    Everyone was friendly and casual. The process was very pleasant. They seemed to focus mainly on selling the agency to me, explaining that the agency is in transition and they are expecting better things to come.

    Unfortunately, I think in the process of them selling the agency to me, I didn't get a full picture of work life here -- the good and the bad. My questions regarding the challenges and negatives of the position didn't uncover anything at all. That made it harder to figure out what they were looking for and if we were a good match. I later found out on the job that there were unique and substantial challenges.

    Negotiation Details
    There didn't seem to be much wiggle room, but there was a little. This agency is part of a large parent company (Publicis) so I suspect they just follow the parent company's expectations and structure on this.
