I have been working at IBISWorld (More than a year)
I am in love with this division of IBIS! The views of the Pacific and downtown LA is incredible. I love the new General Manager that in place and leading this office from New York. He has implemented incredible cultural changes that inspire me to come to work! Hats off to IBIS Los Angeles for acknowledging your growing pains and doing something about it! Exciting times ahead! Also, your vacation policy is nothing like any company I've seen! It really takes on a European and Australian culture right here in Los Angeles! Thanks for giving me the work/life balance!
Right now, I don't have any cons. If you would have asked me a year ago, I might have commented differently.
Advice to Management
Keep up the great work and thank you for investing in the business and your people!
I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at IBISWorld in August 2015.
I had a phone interview with a senior editor who used the word "chill" to describe the office setting and said the people are his favorite part of the job. He sounded very young and unpolished. After the interview, which lasted about 20 min., I took an editing test. The test was in a Word doc, so some errors were already highlighted. After that, I was told I did well on the test and that they wanted to bring me in for an in-person interview. I was out of state, so I could not fly in for the meeting, and they wanted me to start very quickly if hired. I told them I could do a video interview instead and then I didn't hear from them again. I wouldn't have been able to move to NY within about a week.
