    I worked at Carrot full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Carrot is full of self-starters and wearers-of-many-hats. While it's far beyond a startup, much like a small scrappy company, Carrot gives ambitious people a chance to expand their skillset and to explore new opportunities. The beauty of this agency is that while it competes with the best of the best, it doesn't fall into the same negative habits that marketing firms often suffer from. If you want to work with great brands and great people, I would highly recommend exploring Carrot.

    Cons

    Being owned by VICE is a powerful differentiator but there are some inevitable growing pains as the companies work more closely together. This is very solvable and the company seems to be on track for major success in 2017 and beyond.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be picky about the brands you work with.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Carrot.

    Interview

    I had the phone with HR person. She asked me some generic questions about my digital knowledge and 1-2 questions about what do I like to do outside of the work. It's difficult to answer the questions over the phone conversation. She started talking about how important the culture fit is. Everyone at the company is super and cool. it's like if you want to get into the cool group, you have to be so and so. mehh
