    I have been working at Goodby, Silverstein & Partners full-time

    Pros

    Feels like family and everyone is supportive of each other. From Jeff Goodby to the folks in the mailroom. If you have a problem, the partners are on it to solve it and push the client. You always feel like everyone is fighting for the best work and the partners foster an atmosphere of transparency and integrity. Never been happier.

    Cons

    The place has won a ton of new business which of course makes staffing hard. People work long hours but since the people are so kind and hilarious it rarely feels like work. Plus there are the cutest dogs in the world running around at all times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being your honest, supportive and lovable selves.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Goodby, Silverstein & Partners.

    Interview

    THEY GHOSTED ME! I applied online and a couple days later I received an email from HR to complete a questionnaire to see if I would "fit with the company culture." After submitting it and seeing that the HR Generalist viewed my LinkedIn, I contacted them asking for the status of my application, but they ghosted me.

    After doing some digging on the team & company, I realized that I had zero chance of moving past that initial screening as the entire team was made up of white male & women and I did not "fit" that image or the culture at all. Their idea of making things "diverse" is bringing in a new dog breed.
