    I worked at Direct Agents full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Lots of growth opportunities for interns
    - Good culture among coworkers
    - Teriffic location to work (Astor Place)
    - Great HR team
    - Small size will force you to wear many hats/learn a lot

    Cons

    - Vision for growth needs to be clearer
    - Teams can sometimes be more silo'd than should be
    - Some management turnover needed
    - Small size can sometimes lead to pain points and bottlenecks

    Advice to Management

    DA has been going for a long time now, adapting to the changing marketplace quite nimbly. But I feel there is confusion internally about what the road ahead means in terms of growth. It's hard to tell if the company wants to grow or remain the same size. I feel that solidifying that long-term strategy will help to make the right decisions about how to make the day-to-day that much better/more efficient.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Direct Agents (New York, NY) in July 2017.

    Interview

    A few days after applying online I received an email from the HR Manager asking when I'm available for a short phone call. I responded promptly. I waited five days before checking in to see if she received my email. A different person responded and I scheduled a call with him. During the call he seemed unenthusiastic and seemed like he had never interviewed anyone before. He let me know that I would hear back from them by the next day. That was five days ago and I still haven't heard back.
