    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at frog design (New York, NY) in August 2019.

    Interview

    Series of in-person interviews with working team in NY studio + a few calls with leaders in outside locations. Process was run by Talent Acquisition team out of the Austin studio. Main contact on T.A. team in ATX was truly outstanding. MD of NY Studio was also incredible, carved out time to have 1:1 lunch in the area to allow for a deeper conversation. Decision on offer was very difficult to make.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at frog design (San Francisco, CA) in January 2019.

    Interview

    Half hour interview with GM (general questions about design process and experience), then 45 minute casual interview with upper level visual designer (talked through projects/portfolio, asked questions). Didn't get an offer, but got the nicest rejection letter ever! Everyone I interacted with was very friendly and put me at ease.

    Interaction Design Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at frog design (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    I applied online and I received a response the same day, what surprised me. We set a phone interview pretty quickly, they have a very handy system for that. During the call I had some technical issues and they were super nice and call me back multiple times, what I really appreciate. Unfortunately even though they liked my profile they only hire people with permanent working permit, what is not the case for me.

    Interaction Designer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at frog design.

    Interview

    I applied to several studios, with the non-west coast studios being noticeably more friendly and communicative. The folks at the Austin studio were great; the west coast studios felt awkward and standoff-ish during later stages. On several occasions, I was given an inaccurate picture of what the company was looking for. One of the processes ended, after many hours of involvement and time committed to interviews, with an automated message saying they had selected another candidate. The other ended by saying they no longer needed to fill that position. Both were handled poorly, and left a less-than-stellar impression of the company.

    Associate Creative Director Interview

    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!

    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.
