    I worked at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are market rate.

    Cons

    It's a huge company with hierachy, so it takes a while to advance. Some who had been there a long time left because they couldn't go further.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and received email few days later. Then I met with the director of the marketing department. They have been interviewing many people for the position and want to fill it up asap. The questions are fairly easy. Just talk through what you have been doing, why do you want to work on marketing in the architecture industry.

    I guess for this position, it'd be better if you studied architecture rather than marketing. It's important to show you understand the design, and strong interest in SOM.
