I worked at Marketing Drive full-time (More than 3 years)
Creative department is awesome, work hard/play hard, opportunities to shine, encouragement from senior management, exciting accounts, opportunities for skill development
some late hours for creative and occasionally account management, pitches are time and energy consuming, but necessary
Advice to Management
Continue to encourage collaboration bw account and creative; reward outstanding work, support and nurture less experienced staff and empower them to take on projects and develop their skills
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Marketing Drive (Boston, MA) in January 2011.
I applied for a position listed on their website. A recruiter (based out of CT) called me to setup a phone interview. A few days later we had a 45 minute phone discussion about my experience and resume. She told be she would setup an in person interview for the following week. A week later, I had not heard back from her, I called her and then she finally setup an interview. When I went to the office to interview, their was no one at their front desk to greet me and every employee that walked though the doors just ignored me and walked away. After waiting for awhile the woman who I interviewed with came to get me. We had a very straightforward conversation about the position and my background. The interview lasted about 45 minutes. She promised me they would get back to me by the end of the week. Since I did not hear back from them, I reached back out and my inquires were ignored. I never received a response back from either the Boston office or the recruiter. This was just plain disrespectful. I most likely would not have taken the job anyway, but for a company to just ignore a candidate and not get back to her/him is not okay and it speaks wonders about the company (in a very bad way!).
