I worked at Anthro full-time
Flexible schedule, hard working team, and the company is located outside of Portland so it makes the commute easy. They also have a pretty fair rate of pay.
Since the acquisition, the company struggles with clear direction. Spends alot of time and resources on things that end up going nowhere.
Advice to Management
Be more decisive and selective in your decisions. You can't cover everything at once.
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Anthro (Tualatin, OR) in June 2010.
I went through two interviews. One with the Creative Director and a Senior Designer. The other was with HR. Feedback and responses were pretty quick. I think this was due to the fact that they were in desperate need. One thing I felt a little negatively about was how quickly they wanted a response. I had been out of work for a while and they knew I had another offer on the table. Didn't want to rush things but they made it difficult.
Reasons for Declining
I had another offer come in the next day that offered a better career path.
