For junior staff, you can make some great friends here. There's always a happy hour or some event. The hours are long for full-time staff, but a good balance for interns. The office is great - free fruit, vending machines, nice set-up. The location couldn't be better - restaurants, shopping, T right outside the door.
There are some management issues and I know lately there have been layoffs. I had a great experience as an intern though.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Beam Interactive & Relationship Marketing (Boston, MA).
HR definitely dropped the ball, at least from what I can see. After various schedule changes (including on the day of the interview), I met with a manager and a partner. Both seemed nice and knowledgeable, especially the partner. They did want me to do strategy and translation at the same time - that's a different job and the pay itself was insulting.
I never saw HR - just an e-mail ghost. After telling me "you will hear from us soon" it became a never hear back from again. That's just poor manners.
