To give a quick overview, the company is in a great space, it moves fast, it is creative, the employees are equality as fast, creative, encouraging, and supporting.
*The pros include having support from management, not only are they open to feedback they truly try to understand a problem and propose solutions.
*The office is filled with a team that is very diverse booth in personality, knowledge, and insight. They are all the make up of W2GI and are really a great group to work with.
*The CEO leads by example, his passion and continued love for the company is motivational and encouraging.
*Education is huge within the culture they provide every employee with resources to advance their career through book reimbursements, conference budgets, and many more.
*The entrepreneurial spirit also allows you to reach into different areas of the industry, one day you may be doing SEO the other social media marketing, it is a very open environmental and everyone who has knowledge is willing to share it.
*There is a lot of independence and while that may not be for everyone if you are a person who is able to manage the fast paced work environment you will be fine.
*Being part of the culture I am glad to say they admire, people who are open to growth, maturity, communication, individuality, creativity, and fun.
*The entrepreneurial spirit is not for everyone, some may say that it may come off as a lack of direction, but in reality it is a way to advance in your career without the corporate restrictions or inhibitions. If you do not have the communication skills to identify your needs and desire to grow, this is not for you.
* You work on many projects on your own, it may be easy to get lost in that independence. So you have to remember to remember that you have a team to reach out to.... if you seek it you have support.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Where 2 Get It (Anaheim, CA).
Had multiple interviews over the phone, was flown down to interview in person, interviewed by at least ten people, had to put together a powerpoint and give a mock sales pitch, had to give an unexpected sales pitch to a programmer, in-person interview was over 4 hours long. They are inconsistent in their interviewing, but if they are serious about you, you can expect multi-interviews over a long period of time.
- Was asked to demonstrate unrelated credentials listed on my resume. I had to speak French, Spanish and give a detailed description of various philosophical argurements to prove I was a philosophy major. Answer Question
Company tried to offer me below what the recruiter promised at the start of my application process. I had to fight for the originaly offered base salary
