    I have been working at GSW Marketing & Advertising full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Awesome award-winning creative
    -Fusing with PALIO is bringing new culture, new leadership and new approaches
    -Commitment to cool pro-bono work
    -Office planned to right across from Chelsea Market (hooray lunch options!)
    -New leadership that is onsite, involved, and brings the small agency perspective that worked so well at PALIO

    Cons

    Change is always hard, but the teams are ready to make something new and great
    Challenges with working across two NYC locations at the moment

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep people informed and involved in building the new company. Look ahead to new wins!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at GSW Marketing & Advertising (Westerville, OH) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted to do a phone screen. The recruiter was very friendly and seemed interested in providing helpful information about the company and positions. Several weeks later I was asked to come in to do a series of 1 on 1 interviews with four different managers. Having access to four different members of the team on one day is a great opportunity except that they all asked basically the same questions. Some seemed to be mostly interested in getting inside information about what my current agency does.

    Ultimately after being assured that I have all of the qualities they are looking for and told multiple times during the process that they would be in touch soon, nothing developed. Even when I followed up they would say I was still one of their top candidates. I decided to move on since I wouldn't want to work for a company that gives people the run around instead of being professional and forthright. Fast forward four months and they still have the position listed as open.
