    Pros

    Supportive atmosphere. Excellent account people. Not political or bureaucratic. Lots of opportunity. Strong leadership. A lot of ongoing digital work.

    Cons

    Small staff. No global reach. Like any small agency, each person has a moderately heavy workload and a lot of responsibility which makes coverage difficult when people are out of the office.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at C-K (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Had 3 interviews total. 1 Phone interview with HR, 1 interview with the Account Directors & Supervisors, 1- interview with Group Account Directors. Very conversational in tone, because they want someone who can contribute to a conversation. don't just nod in agreement add substance to the conversation on why you would make a good fit.
