    I have been working at ICS full-time

    Pros

    Generous annual leave , free coffe /tea and fruits , charity events , annual parties , friendly people

    Cons

    Forever changes - not all changes for the good , new proceeses some never applied , huge pressure on some teams who deal on a day to day basis with clients and temps , always same people being appreciated and others ignored . So much going on one day there s a rule next day it could be different, hours, ...completly opposite . Where do I start ...so much to say

    Advice to Management

    If the people have a voice through surveys and management says it will follow up on feedback then why are they turning around back to the same old ? Also when asking some teams to work the odd hours and looking at figures only but not actually listening on what people have to say it demotivates people . They should step in their shoes at least for the odd hours when short . Happening in South West.

    Digital Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ICS (London, England (UK)) in February 2020.

    Interview

    I applied through indeed. The process took 3 weeks. I was interviewed at ICS London, England in February 2020.
    I was required to make a presentation on Pulse website redevelopment both pre and post redevelopment strategy planning to be included. I was interviewed by 3 people, or should i say 3 "headless chickens" as it was very clear that they where very dependent of digital agencies doing the work for them and knew nothing about digital optimisation, SEO trends or PPC conversion. As I was doing my PowerPoint presentation, i was constantly being interrupted with the most basic questions to wich I already had answered on a slide...In overall the interview process and the interview itself was a completely waste of my time. My recommendations to the stakeholders of ICS would be: Make sure you add qualified personnel to your marketing department that are capable of assessing your candidates skills and make sure they have either A digital marketing diploma, PPC certification, SEO certification, and know how to develop WordPress websites as I do!
