    I worked at Stephen Thomas full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Stephen Thomas Ltd. is a great place to grow and develop as a person and as a professional. You have the opportunity to work in your designated position, but also the opportunity to try out new areas. You have the chance to wear a few different hats, and find the area where you shine. That is one thing the ST is great at is letting you shine. Stephen Thomas is a family the minute that you walk in the door. If you choose to separate yourself from the "clique", as someone else has put it, like in any office or group you will feel like an outsider. You need to jump in with both feet at this place, come ready to work hard, bring your whole heart and put it into the great work that they do here and you will have some of the best years of your career.

    Cons

    You will not make millions working at Stephen Thomas. You work at ST because of the culture, because of the great people and clients and because of the work they are doing to make the world a better place. Being focused strongly in direct mail, there are many "old school" techniques that are in need of updating. This is slowly happening, but change does not happen fast. Being a smaller organization you can at times feel “stuck” in your current position. You will need to work hard to work your way up the ladder at ST, and sometimes you need to wait for others to leave their positions or move up to make room for you. As a smaller organization that is the reality.

    Advice to Management

    Trust all of your staff, not just the seniors. There are some great minds in the bullpen, they just need a little room to show their stuff. If someone is great remember to tell them that. Everyone likes a pat on the shoulder when they work their butts off on a project. Keep doing what you're doing, its a great friendly warm environment and anyone should be honoured to work there.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Stephen Thomas (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Found the job on LinkedIn. Got a call from them a few weeks later to schedule a telephone interview. In the telephone interview they asked me a bunch of questions relating to the job posting. About a week after that, I got called in for an in-person interview. I prepared for the interview mostly by reviewing their website and this definitely helped me answer many of the interview questions. Two ST employees interviewed me. There were some very strange questions (see questions section), so be prepared for those. I also had to e-mail them back about 3 weeks after the interview before they finally let me know that they decided to pursue other candidates.
