I have been working at Consolidus full-time
When you first walk into Consolidus you can see a different environment than your typical office. Everyone collaborates and there is a very strong sense of team. Management has a very direct line of communication with staff and genuinely listens to advice and offers ideas to help you grow within your position and the company. The pace is fast and the growth even faster.
I haven't experienced anything yet that would be considered a con although the interview process might frustrate a few. It can be long to make a decision but it is made very deliberately and effectively.
Advice to Management
Continue with the open door policy as we grow, and continue to offer advice and ability to staff to grow as well.
I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Consolidus (Akron, OH) in July 2015.
Jeff and I had multiple meetings to discuss the organization, its goals, and what they were looking for in a new hire. After having a better understanding of their needs and objectives for the future, I was able to prepare a 90 day plan of how I could make an impact within the organization. From there, I shared the plan with each member of their leadership team, discussed with them further my ambitions and goals, and then we all worked together to decide on how to best align ourselves for success. It certainly wasn't a traditional interview but then again, I generally don't have traditional interviews.
