    I have been working at Catalyst Online full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great practice and collaboration among all teams; work cross-functionally is encouraged.

    New ideas are valued; you get the change to actually implement them, if and when feasible.

    Initiative taking is always noticed and rewarded.

    Cons

    Catalyst functions as a start-up, which creates constant opportunities for development and growth. If embraced, this can be turned into a benefit and not a downside! Catalyst ROCKS!

    Account Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Catalyst Online (New York, NY) in October 2011.

    Interview

    I first had a phone interview with Headquarters that went great. Then i had in house interview. The 15 min interview was a waste of time. The questions asked where typical interview questions. No questions pertaining to skill level of capabilities. The interviewer showed no interest in me and made me feel like I was wasting his time. I felt I was asking all the questions with no interesting response. I was told "I don't over see this division. I work with the account directors that manage client relationships, this position works side by side with me".
    So not sure why I interviewed with this person.
