    Field Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stamford, CT
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Protegrity (Stamford, CT) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Lengthy phone interview with HR, then a phone interview with reporting manager, then in-person met with marketing team and sales executive and again HR. It seemed like they just wanted to gather intel since I came from another but more successful software company. I spent over 5 hours interviewing with everyone, met the CMO at the end and she demanded that the person in this position provide impossible results. But for the pay of 85-95k a year, I was thinking this position is set up for failure by overly aggressive and impossible goals. From my experience with this company, it seems they don't know what they want or are just trying to gather new marketing techniques and intel. Supposedly they interviewed over 50 people for this position but have not found a candidate which confirms they are incompetent. Stay away from this company they are looking for a unicorn, and they have impossible goals, which tells me that they are not doing very well.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Protegrity (San Diego, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Multiple interviews with a lot of different people. Got through the whole process and was supposed to talk to the CEO. He cancelled on me multiple times and didn't even notify me that he was not going to make the meeting. Then dead silence. No response even after I sent emails to get clarification on what was going on. STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY! THEY ARE NOT PROFESSIONAL! Look up the CEO interesting information on some legal cases!

    Product Marketing Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Protegrity (Stamford, CT) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I applied for the position from a job board. I was called the next day and had a lengthy conversation with a delightful Protegrity business development manager. After that I came in for a lengthy interview with all members of the marketing team. Throughout the process, the team was very responsive and kept me informed regarding progress. They asked me to demonstrate my writing skills by creating an FAQ sheet for evaluation purposes. I was told a few days later that I would not be getting the position. I was surprised a few weeks later that they did in fact use my writing sample on their website without my permission and without compensation. (they added more technical information about their product, but clearly it was my work.) To verify, I ran it through grammarly.com. The result was "significant plagiarism issues. I wrote to inquire how this could be and they did not see why I would have an issue with what they did. They did not even deny it. So be aware if you are asked to provide anything, it could be used by the company however they see fit.
