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

    Pros

    Certify is a great place with a really positive environment filled with people who want to be there and want to see you do well, from all departments. I hate the term culture as it is overkill in today's age, but this place really is an incubation of good people with great attitudes. There is not a day that I am not grateful to have my position with the friends I get to call my team. By no means is it a "kool-aid" environment where friendships are forced outside of work but it often happens due to choice and being surrounded by great people.

    Cons

    It is a growing company and with fast pace growth often comes arriving to milestones before we are quite ready. You have to be adaptable and you have to be open minded. Things don't always roll out in the smoothest fashion or in an expected time, but when they do it always goes to show why this company is one of the top providers in the space.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be open to the everyday employee. CEO open door policy regardless of how big we've grown really does go along way. Leadership - continue to be involved directly with employees outside of a management perspective. Continue to get to know all of us because it really makes our work feel valued.

    Channel Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Portland, ME
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Certify (Portland, ME) in March 2018.

    Interview

    My interview process took a little longer than the standard as my position was being re-worked from a coordinator title to a manager title. However, throughout the process I was kept in the loop the entire time. After I completed my in-person interview, the turn around from offer to my acceptance of the position went very quickly. The recruiter I worked with was great and was an advocate for me during the negotiation process.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked about my background and experience within the role I was applying for and my style of work ethic.   Answer Question
