I worked at Adfero full-time (More than a year)
Incredible team atmosphere with everyone kicking in to help move projects over the finish line. There's never a boring day, and the company works hard to ensure that all team members are supported. New office space is incredible and the management is very approachable. Great people to work with and for.
Also worth mentioning how transparent leadership is. Every major decision is explained to staff and all financials for the firm are readily available. It makes your opinions feel validated and your concerns listened to. Jeff and company run a great ship.
Junior staff compensation is pretty brutal for how expensive DC can be. Depending on what client you're on, you can be pretty isolated from other colleagues for long stretches of time.
Advice to Management
Pay junior staff a bit more and I think you'd have candidates knocking down your doors to work here.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Adfero (Washington, DC).
Phone interview with Talent Director followed by an In-person interview with COO followed by and in-person interview with VP and Senior Account Supervisor. After these interviews, I submitted writing samples and references. The talent director handled all of the coordination and everything went smoothly from start to finish. Overall, the process took a few weeks because of the role that I was applying for.
