    Pros

    • Talented creative teams are lead by an approachable ECD who knows how to build teams, foster creativity and encourage risk taking
    • A strong sense of community and friendship exists thanks to frequent work functions and cross-team collaborations
    • Good benefits for full-time employees—nice perks for both freelance and full-time
    • The leadership practices a very flat, transparent operational style that encourages ideas from feedback from everyone
    • Process exists to ensure quality—but it is flexible enough to allow new ways of doing things

    Cons

    • The typical challenges associated with advertising, marketing and other service related firms also exist at here—fast pace, challenging deadlines and some difficult clients. But on the whole—I would say that Slack does a good job with managing clients to allow for a work-life-balance.

    Advice to Management

    Keep treating people like people—and you'll aways attract good talent. This applies to clients as well.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Slack and Company in September 2014.

    Interview

    Discovered the opening via Twitter which directed me to the website. Per the website's request, I sent an email and resume to the HR manager. Was contacted for an interview about a month later. First round was a quick phone chat and then I followed-up to come in for an in-person interview which was scheduled for about a week later. During my interview at the office I met with the HR manager and two other account supervisors. One of them had a meeting go longer than expected so a very friendly account manager kept me company and told me a bit more about "Slack" from a former intern's point of view. Everyone made me feel very comfortable and there were no questions outside of typical "tell me about yourself and your experiences" requests. I then followed up another week after my interview but was redirected as the hiring manager was out of the office. My circumstances were urgent because I had received an offer elsewhere but very much enjoyed my Slack and Company experience more. The help I received from a few employees was absolutely wonderful and I was able to receive an offer shortly thereafter.
