    Pros

    The team you will work with at Word & Brown cares about their performance. They demand quality and are articulate in their communication of clear and concise requirements. Subject Matter Expertise abounds with many staff throughout the company with tenures of 10 or more years. This company has multiple divisions; some FAR better and some FAR worse to work for, choose carefully!

    Cons

    Upper management (not the owners, who are fantastic) have little leadership acumen and are either inserting themselves where they shouldn't, or excusing themselves where they are needed to make leadership decisions because they don't want the accountability. When projects go wrong leadership demands that everyone point fingers at each other and it makes it hard to trust leadership because they'd through anyone under the bus they can to maintain their position - which is why they are at the top. It's toxic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Define your leadership by building camaraderie in your teams. When something goes wrong, YOU'RE to blame, not the team. Figure out what YOU did wrong and fix yourself.

    Interview Details

    Initial process was a phone interview with HR about 10-15 min. Followed by a face-to-face interview with departmental manager lasted about hour an a half. If you make that first face-to-face interview, it will be followed by a panel interview with some of the big bosses on a different date. When you make it, there's another one coming. I thought the number of interviews are a little too excessive.
