    I have been working at WCG full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Really smart people that are actually cool and fun, lots of good accounts to work on and lots of opportunity - if you take advantage of it. It is also a pretty flexible environment - no one really cares where you work from, what hours you work, etc. as long as your clients are happy, your teams are happy and you "make it happen"

    Cons

    Sometimes work-life balance can be hard, but after a few years you learn how to manage that. Also, I get that it sometimes can be a crazy environment, and if you need a lot of structure this place probably isn't for you - but in my eyes, the lack of structure that other people reference in their reviews leads to innovation and opportunity (think entrepreneurship). For people like me that happen to thrive in ambiguity and change (and find it exciting) you will excel in an environment like WCG/W2O (or whatever we are called this week- this is where the ambiguity part comes in). I do think when you come in as a new employee, we pay above the industry standard, but after you have been here a while, I'm not sure the pay is as competitive as raises can sometimes be lackluster. I know peers that have left to go to other agencies and are now making 20-30% more than I do, which kind of sucks.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at WCG.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted about a week after I applied by an HR person. Had a phone interview, was asked immediately to come on site for an interview. The individuals I met with (3 in a 1.5 hour period) were very friendly and knowledgeable, and that was an overall good experience. While I didn't think (after learning more about the role) that my skill set was an exact match for the position, I AT LEAST expected some sort of follow up from HR regarding my status as an applicant. I guess that was too much to ask -- I sent a follow up email 2 weeks after the onsite interviews were conducted, and received no response. As I took the time to leave work to come in to interview for the position, I expected the courtesy of at least following up with a decision. This left me with an incredibly sour taste in my mouth, even after the good experience I had meeting the employees.
