    Associate Creative Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at frog design (Austin, TX) in April 2017.

    Interview

    As expected, it's a pretty intense process. I had 4 rounds of interviews, with the final round being a team interview. They had 7 people present, including many Directors and the Austin ECD. They were each incredibly impressive, articulate, and naturally demanding. That said, the process was very relaxed and comfortable. They are the epitome of professional and respectful. I never got the impression that they wanted to intimidate, nor did they want me to fail. They simply wanted to challenge me. It is not easy to become a frog, as the standards are quite high. It's obvious after going through this process that those standards are paying off!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at frog design (New York, NY) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The first round of interviews was an hour-long phone conversation with a member of the team. They asked several questions about my work, asked which frog design project was my favorite, and left room for my questions.

    Senior Strategist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at frog design (New York, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I had several phone interviews, followed by in person interview with a team of folks. I was asked to prepare a presentation explaining more about who I am and how I was qualified and a separate presentation on how I would execute the job. I felt like they were looking for a specific answer and were thrown for a loop when I proposed something different and revolutionary to the business. If you think about product development as an industry it is dying. Frog is trying to swim up-stream by trying to compete with the likes of McKinsey. The money is not in the strategy consulting. Even McKinsey is struggling with their business model, branching out to product development and solutions. Pretty soon everyone will be a carbon copy of Accenture. I found it interesting that an innovation firm would have such a protectionist view on their business. The executives are still riding on the success of 40 years ago. Frog, IDEO, McKinsey, BCG, Accenture will all look the same in 5 years. You'll see a lot of consolidation in this space. And for those without a business degree: a business funded by private equity groups or private capital without a self-sustaining growth model is not a winning business model.

    Senior Talent Acquisition Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at frog design (San Francisco, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    It was very quick and streamlined. Had 2 phone calls and one onsite interview. This was an entry-level, non-billable position so it was not extremely demanding. We met for coffee and then went to the studio to tour and meet some people which was a very pleasant way to be introduced to the space.

    Senior Strategist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at frog design in August 2016.

    Interview

    Scheduled an interview with the recruiter but she did not show up. Apologized and rescheduled, but the second time did not show up again. Followed up twice but never hear back from her anymore.

    Very unprofessional attitude. I doubt top talents would want to join a firm that treats candidates with no respect.

    Visual/User Experience Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at frog design in February 2016.

    Interview

    Met with a recruiter at a career fair. He didn't lead the conversation he just opened with "So what kind of questions do you have for me?" I was a little thrown off because there wasn't much introduction. He asked for my resume, but didn't look at it. He didn't ask about me. He didn't ask about projects. I wasn't sure how to interact with such a conversation or what he wanted from me as an interviewer. I was instantly turned off by the company, unfortunately. It seemed like he just wanted me gone before we even introduced ourselves. Weirdest and most socially awkward interview ever.
