    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Contend as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    The office is great. The clients are good. But the best part of this place is the people. The management is no-bullshit and protects the team. I've seen them defend creatives when others would have thrown them under the bus to win business. The ops team is communicative and empathetic. No one is fake.

    The departments are collaborative and take care of each other. It really is an absolutely positive place in that regard, and I didn't appreciate it fully until I moved on to another contract elsewhere (but returned, of course). Don't expect it to be a party all the time, but do expect a low level of stress and drama.

    Cons

    The client roster isn't very robust or sexy all the time. Sometimes billable hours can get lean, so rates can be low and sometimes that means you have to work with a junior.

    Sometimes hours can get long, but since everyone is cool, it isn't that bad.

    There really is a "no a-hole" policy and they keep it that way -- some of these negative reviews are the ones that didn't make the cut. Eek.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Contend (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2019.

    Interview

    The team invited me in and I got to meet several people in one day rather than multiple visits. Everyone was friendly and asked me questions and answered all of my questions. They were honest and open and upfront. They explained the job details very well.
