    I have been working at Compete, Inc (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly. Reasonable working hours with little overtime. Good team approach. Many social events, which were popular among employees, though not of interest to me.

    Cons

    Management had unrealistic expectations of the market and what the company could deliver, which lead to the company downfall. This was not just a problem of Compete, but also of the parent company MillwardBrown

    Advice to Management

    Don't switch company goals every 6 months. Also more planning is need as too many initiatives were started and then dropped, or unrealistic in the first place.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Compete, Inc (Boston, MA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Light phone screening followed by an invite to an event with a round robin of interviews. Was a really good experience, learned a lot about the company and met a lot of people. After the event they emailed me a test to get back as soon as I could. Followed that with a final interview day which consisted of 4 interviews from 6 total people. Overall smooth and a good experience.
