    I worked at Socialarc full-time

    Pros

    Good place to start to gain professional experience. Junior staff is generally talented and energetic. Upper management (e.g., Group Account Directors, VP's, etc.) is generally very supportive of junior team members. Close-knit group that helps support one another through the ups and downs of the agency. CEO provides team members with room to grow, though to a limit.

    Cons

    Incredibly volatile and emotional CEO who often micro-manages and fails to fully recognize, appreciate, and support upper management and junior staff. Company direction is lacking focus, feels short-sighted, and switches every few months. Junior team is limited in client interaction, specifically when it comes to presenting and developing marketing plans, due to strong upper hand from CEO.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CEO needs to be more trusting of upper management and junior team. Upper management needs to be given room to provide more direction for the company, and allow their junior team to have more freedom. More collaboration needs to be encouraged and welcomed.

    I applied online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Socialarc.

    Initial round of about 4 interviews, all in one setting. No phone interview ahead of time except a friendly call to see if you can come in. Friendly team, good questions, overall a good experience. Only downside is the location of the office is a little bit of a pain.

    • No difficult questions per se. Just be sure you're very versed in the social landscape.   Answer Question
