I have been working at Click Here Labs part-time (More than a year)
Wealth of experience and information all around you. Company encourages individual growth by mandating employee presentations (to the rest of the company) about anything digital. Weekly meetings for aforementioned presentations allows you to learn information about the digital world. Company invites contributions for yearly digital trend publication. Lots of project information sharing. Management continues to work on improving processes and seek out our opinion.
Work load can be insane at times.
Solo work environment - you can easily get lost in all the people (there are 690 employees currently with The Richards Group). It takes a lot to stand out in the crowd although the opportunity is there. Amazing retirement benefits that kick in after 5 years. Insurance is free for the employee but once you add dependents, get ready to sell your first born to keep up with the cost. And even at the enormous cost, insurance does NOT cover preventative care. Company LOVES to hire just-out-of college graduates. Thats fine and great but it seems like as a seasoned employee, I am training these young ones every time I turn around. Also creates an environment where its hard to relate to much younger co-workers.
Advice to Management
Consider employees with family. Especially when it comes to insurance.
Bring your employees together more. Have a more "we actually care about you" environment. I dont get the warm and fuzzies working here - its not a requirement for all but it is for me. Hire different ages for more experience.
I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Click Here Labs (Dallas, TX) in December 2010.
Applied on authenticjobs.com. Also knew two people at company - that probably helped. Phone interview with lead, no technical questions. I asked many of questions about the team, process, expectation. Brought in for in-person interview with lead, principle. Asked lead to bring some of his team to meet me for lunch, which he did. Came back another time to mean two managing directors (this was some sort of standard procedure thing, an offer was already imminent).
Most of their perks were non-negotiable.
