    Pros

    DP has overcome growing pains in the last few years. It went from being a small agency fighting to win projects to a small agency with new business coming out of its ears. It was challenging to keep up with the work load while the agency evolved.

    A lot of folks stuck around because we love this crazy place and management has since added a lot of really smart people who share our passion for making this a great place to work. The in-house technology team almost tripled in size and our final product is even more robust and polished. These folks are approachable and love a challenge. The design team doubled and it's still growing. There are designers at every level who are doing beautiful work and helping each other out.

    All the project managers are senior level. They each march to their own drum so every project is run a little bit differently but they do a good job making sure everyone enjoys a work/life balance.

    Senior management is very hands-on. They recognize hard work and reward it generously.

    Cons

    - Some bread-and-butter projects aren't very exciting
    - Health insurance is expensive (but this is offset by bonuses and standardized raises)
    - Open office space isn't for everyone

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to turn down business. There are some projects that aren't worth the payoff and divert people away from achieving their full potential on bigger projects.

    Interview

    1. 30mn phone screen
    2. days later, 1.5hr in person with Head of Resources, Head of Technology, Lead Developer (all at once usually, separate unlikely)
    3. next day, 8hr at-home code test
    4. days later, 2nd in person for 1hr to check personality

    your usual start-up like questions, all as expected from each particular employee type, premium placed on personal initiative, technical curiosity and pushing and testing technologies on own, owning own code, cross-checking each other's code with or without notice/instruction, pixel-perfection required
