    I worked at Connelly Partners full-time

    Pros

    The combination of people, culture, and environment makes for a work experience that you probably won't find anywhere else. To this day, there's a lot that I still miss: the constant sound of music; the openness throughout the space; the accessibility of people (managers, partners, etc.). You feel it all as soon as you walk in, and if you embrace it, you'll learn to love it.

    Steve Connelly is a great guy. A true coach. And I've never met a more accessible, open to feedback, caring leader. He's the type of guy you never want to disappoint.

    Opportunity is everywhere, but it's up to you as an individual to find it, own it and embrace it. If you show up to coast, then you'll coast (and probably won't be happy). If want to do something great, provide value and really help the agency and its clients succeed, then you'll love it. But it takes a certain level of commitment -- no one's going to hold your hand. CP's thrives off of the people who recognize this early on.

    Cons

    Sure, there are cons -- but there are cons at every company. The agency's process/workflow can be challenging at times, which can trickle into a flurry of smaller issues. Goals and priorities aren't always super clear. But those things can (and, I'm sure, will) be fixed in time.

    Advice to Management

    Culturally, keep doing what you're doing. And find the right people who will embrace and enjoy it. I hope CP never changes its philosophy on culture and the agency's overall funk/vibe.

    There's an opportunity to understand the organization's strengths and take them to the next level. You don't need to be everything to everyone across every single industry vertical -- it seems like this is impossible to deliver these days. Find out what works well, understand why, and grow it.

    Pay close attention to your employees at all levels, and help them find (and work towards) their growth path. For the agency to keep thriving, it's people need to feel like they are a part of something special (not just as a group, but as individuals).

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Connelly Partners (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    I was asked to come in for a few hours and meet with the team, the office was very nice. The people were relaxed and easy to talk with. They didn't ask anything too difficult, mostly just had a conversation about my background, the day to day in the position, and I had plenty of time to ask them questions. Overall, I had a good conversation with them, but they decided to go with a different candidate.

    Connelly Partners" Connelly Partners Helps Employees Pay Down Student Loan Debt

    Student loan debt is a huge issue (1.2 trillion dollars huge) for our country and for our workforce, especially the advertising industry-which employs so many recent graduates. When Steve Connelly's friend and fellow Babson College alum, Tim DeMello founded Gradifi, a Student Loan Paydown Plan™ provider, Steve wanted Connelly Partners to be the first advertising agency to offer the benefit.
