    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. I interviewed at Carrot.

    Interview

    A junior recruiter reached out via an automated email to set up a phone interview. After a week and having to follow up to confirm a time for the call the recruiter was unresponsive. After reading other reviews it seemed that this company had a pattern of slow responses.
