    Strategist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Code and Theory.

    Interview

    Got stood up 4 times by the interviewer, when she finally did make it for our interview (a call), she called 17 minutes late for a 30 min call and said she had to keep our finish time.

    I’d heard they were unprofessional and kind of rude but this was next level. The interviewer was pretty green, clearly hadn’t reviewed my resume and asked generic questions. She was apologetic but totally unprepared, I never received a job description so wasn’t clear on what the differences were from C&T and other strategy roles. It was a waste of time.

    I halted the interview process and let them know it wasn’t a fit.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Code and Theory (New York, NY) in December 2018.

    Interview

    I was contacted on Linkedin by a Director after being recommended by a current employee, and had an informational interview to hear more about the role. I then had several rounds of phone interviews before being asked to come on-site. The onsite interview was 4 rounds of 30minute interviews with team members and department heads. I received an offer about a week later. Overall it was a great experience, especially due to the Director of Talent, who was absolutely wonderful throughout the entire process, and very transparent with everything as well as advocating for me internally.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Code and Theory (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Red flags. Quick...too quick. Got an email from HR about an open position. They wanted me to come in for one interview and mentioned that there were nothing else in the process. Went in and it seemed disorganized as HR was scrambling to find the people who would interview me. Interviewed with 3 people individually who would be working above me. HR comes in afterwards and offers the position on the spot and tells me to think about it. Next business day I reach out asking for more information since the interview was vague - no job description and the team was still figuring out where they wanted me to go and do. In the interview, it was mentioned that I'd most likely be working on this specific account and I was excited. Starting a few weeks later, I was put on a different account working on different marketing efforts and still no written job description/expectations. HR was not open to negotiation and by bringing it up they didn't answer my phone call and actually rescinded the offer by email, until I replied telling them I was trying to reach them to accept. Another red flag as HR is the first representation of a company...

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Code and Theory (New York, NY) in December 2009.

    Interview

    The interview process began with a detailed email exchange, which moved on to a technical phone interview. Once I made it through the technical phone interview, I was asked to come to NYC and meet with the tech. director and a few others (a project manager, another developer) in person. The in-person interview lasted a few hours and was very comprehensive. I really enjoyed everyone I met with, and the company atmosphere and environment was pleasant and positive. Overall, I believe I would have enjoyed working with this team of people.
