    Pros

    Gained good experience that I was able to translate into other, more current industries. You know what's expected of you, and by meeting/exceeding those, there is growth.

    Cons

    Needs to be more trust both from and towards Senior Leadership. It would have been better if there was more of a team mentality with management, and not as much us-against-them groupthink.

    Advice to Management

    A steady work/life balance, trust in your team, and less rigid policies would result in people who are more eager to come to work every day.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at YPM (Irvine, CA) in February 2013.

    Interview

    First round of interviews is one on one with HR generalist. Second round of interview is with Director of HR and Director of Media Dept. Found interview questions to be dry, dated, cookie cutter; literally they read questions off the paper one by one. e.g. "what motivates you?", "what are your best qualities?", "how do you manage deadlines?" "how do you feel about cells phones in the work place?" (to which I got the impression that they don't allow their employees to use/have their cell phones accessible during work hours). Interview definitely did not feel like a conversation but more like a deposition. Company has a very conservative culture.
