I worked at Carrot (More than a year)
- Amazing company culture (there doesn't have to be a barrier between professional and personal life if you don't want one)
- The smartest, most driven weirdos ever
- Perks (unlimited vacation, company and industry events, never a lack of food or beer)
- Built on incredible values and beliefs
- You will learn so much and grow very fast if you bring the right attitude and work ethic
- Awesome clients and passion for creativity/rule-breaking
- Extremely fast growth without core structure in place to maintain all of the cultural nuances that attracted people to the company in the first place
- Rewards are not always based on merit - if you strong-arm the right person enough you will get what you want (raises, promotions etc.)
- No standardized base salary for each role
- Since business is doing well and there's always an incoming flow of talent, it seems like management is never pressed enough to make any real change despite how much people express their frustrations
Advice to Management
Listen better and take action. Management was decisive and committed to the company's values when Carrot was smaller. Priorities will always change as the company grows. However, when talent comes to Carrot because of those values, they should always remain the top priority.
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Carrot (Brooklyn, NY) in July 2016.
In person interview was scheduled after the recruiter reached out. I met with the director of the production department as well as the studio producer and several production coordinators. Later they gave me a tour of the production department and introduced me to everyone.
Interview went very well. After following up several times (including with the recruiter) I never heard anything. I continued to follow up, still nothing. I met a girl recently who happened to be applying for the same role. She thought it went very well and she too never heard back from them. Radio silence.
Very unprofessional way to run a business. Inconsiderate and rude.
