    Pros

    Pretty good company to work for. Good benefits, decent pay. The work-life balance is great as well. People that I worked with (sales) are all great people and are a wealth of knowledge. They encourage you to ask questions and want to see you succeed and grow professionally.

    Cons

    Departments are divided. There's not a lot of collaboration between departments. Need to make more company events so that everyone knows everyone.

    Advice to Management

    No complaints really. Unfortunately wasn't able to talk to management as much as I would, but would say a little more effort into making the company a little more collaborative within departments.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at StrongView in June 2014.

    Interview

    I would not recommend this company based upon an exhaustive and excessively lengthy interview process. In my marketing strategy career (15+ years), this was the longest and most arduous interview process, considering I have been hired at more senior levels (Director and VP) at a fraction of the time. From submitting my initial resume and application online to the final decision, this was a 4-month process. It consisted of 8 individual interviews over nearly 3 months (1/2 phone, 1/2 in person), write and present a multi-channel marketing strategy to the company CEO and strategy team, write (or provide) a thought leadership piece, and critique email creative. Then 3 references (all very good) were checked. After 4 months of this process, the HR person basically discussed salary, benefits, company hours, etc. at the tail end, implying I would be receiving a job offer (only to find out with no explanation that they gave the position to another candidate). Very disappointing (as I had put another company on hold for too long, whereby both opportunities were lost).

    I respect (and enjoyed) the leadership that interviewed me and believed they were asking the right questions throughout the process; however, the number of hoops one needed to go through to get hired at a mid-to-senior level position gave me the impression that the company leaders are neither decisive (perhaps suggestive of chaos in company direction and leadership), nor care about the people whom they hire.

    My advice for the company is properly vet your prospective employees, and make a hiring decision within under 2 months. California is an "At Will" hiring state. If the hired employee doesn't work out (for whatever reason), the person will be gone anyway.

    Interview Questions

    • The process took too long (and with so many people) that I don't recall. All questions were appropriate for the job.   Answer Question
