    What SMB Marketers Need To Know About Facebook

    by Cameron Conaway of Klipfolio Small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are, perhaps more than ever before, both excited and scared to make Facebook a serious component of their marketing strategy. Excited because Facebook has increasingly improved its ability to let advertisers drill down to find their exact target market.

  • We at Animoto take a lot of pride in our values. Humbletude, Betterfication, and Oomphosity are terms that are at the core of our company culture. Growbot recently released a comic about our values. Check it out here: http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQcTY

    I have been working at Animoto full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Animoto is an inclusive, warm and friendly place to work, with very talented and driven individuals. Everyone cares deeply about the product, design, technology stack and company direction. The team culture is fantastic, valued and invested in. You can share your ideas and thoughts openly and easily reach across departments to be heard. There is so much space to grow and people to learn from.

    Going to work every day is genuinely fun and challenging.

    Cons

    Animoto is still running a startup mentality in a very competitive market. It's not a place to be a background contributor.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in strong cultural and values. Keep a laser focus on the goals.

    Interview

    Beware exploding offers! I was given an offer with a 3 day window to decide, which is completely unreasonable. When I asked for two weeks, I was grilled about my other offers, and the Animoto offer was revoked.

    Extremely unprofessional behavior. I was strongly considering taking the offer (despite being significantly below market) because I enjoyed the people and the culture, but now I feel grateful that I dodged a bullet in my career.
