    Infographic: 7 Reasons Why Working Remotely Rocks| Acceleration Partners

    Remote work is on the rise-and for good reason. A two-year study by Stanford University found that employees who telecommute are more productive and less distracted than their office-working counterparts. The study also found that remote employees, on average, logged nearly one full day's worth of work more than those who worked in an office environment.

    I have been working at Acceleration Partners full-time (More than 3 years)


    Seriously, AP is the absolute best place to work. I have never worked at another company who genuinely cares for the well-beings of their employees, both professionally and personally, as people beyond the employee. The work we do, while often demanding and challenging, is exciting and inspiring and pushes you to to continue learning and growing. From the top down, AP's employees are all superstars - every here is genuine and thoughtful, functioning a team and here to support one another day in and day out.


    These cons are not true cons per se, but rather an aspect of the company that potential applicants should know about. The culture at AP is outstanding, the work we do is challenging and my colleagues are the best; HOWEVER it is a fast-paced environment, and both expectations and standards are high. To be successful here you have to be highly self-motivated, organized, as well as able to proactively juggle a lot of priorities at any given time. The work from home environment is a huge benefit, however it does not equate to a cushy couch job--we work, and work hard.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Acceleration Partners in August 2016.


    I initially applied for an Associate Account Manager position and was contacted within a week for a phone interview. During the conversation it was explained that they were looking for candidates that had substancial experience in affiliate marketing as they were moving forward with a number of clients that would need to be quickly assigned. I was then asked if I'd like to interview for an Associate position which would give me the necessary background to be able to move into different positions when it was appropriate.

    I had two Skype interviews with Associate Directors and a homework assignment that was an example of work I would be doing. The interviews were very straightforward and felt more like a conversation, making it very easy to discuss my background. The homework assignment was a way to gauge whether or not the tasks I would be doing were something I would enjoy. It was far too easy to over think this assignment - especially being worried it was a pass/fail situation. I did not receive feedback on the submission.

    During the wait to find out if I would move to the final interview, and when the time by which they thought they would know passed, I was communicated with and told the decision was not yet made. This made me far less anxious for the end result.

    I was incredibly disappointed to be told that I would not be moving to the final round due to my location. AP did not have a need for an Associate in my time zone. The email was very apologetic and I felt like I was being valued as a candidate in all the subsequent correspondence. In the final email, I was told that if a position was available, they would contact me. This portion of the interview took place over the course of 3 weeks.

    Three months later AP reached out via email and said that there was a need for an Associate on a west coast client and inquired if I was interested in this opportunity. As I had already gone through the first two rounds, I was able to learn about the role and then move to a final interview. I had a group video chat with the three people that had spoken with me about this opportunity and the following day I received an offer.

    The interview experience I had with AP was indicative of how valued all of the employees are - I was a candidate and felt confidant that they would reach out if something was available. Most other companies would not keep someone in mind for over three months and reach out when an opportunity arose.
