    I have been working at Initiative full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Amazing work culture - encouraged to bring your full authentic self to work.
    -Some of the smartest people in the agency business - and less ego and more work ethic than I've seen at the many agencies I've worked at
    -Empower teams to be accountable and lead with purpose
    -Over 40% of all senior leadership at the agency is made up of women - not something most agencies can say
    -Our product and tools are premier

    Cons

    none - I absolutely love it here and feel its my home.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with transparency, and encouraging a thriving agency culture of inclusivity and creativity.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Initiative (New York, NY) in March 2008.

    Interview

    The process happened rather quickly. I had an initial meeting with HR and was than passed on directly to the group head and was made an offer the following day.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There was room for negotiation and I was successful in getting above what they considered the salary range.
