    I have been working at McGarrah Jessee full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    McJ's culture is unique and makes working here so much more pleasant and rewarding than other places I've worked at. You can tell that people really care about the quality of the work and craft that goes into making the most out of the projects they are given. I can't think of another place I'd rather work.

    Cons

    No place is perfect, but there's honestly not a ton to put in the con column. It's a place that expects everyone to give 100%, so that can be hard at first, but the flip side is that you are given plenty of opportunities to prove your worth and excel, so I'd think of that more as a positive than a negative if you're a self-starter type.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at McGarrah Jessee (Austin, TX) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Was asked to come in upon completion of an assignment (the assignment took around 5-8 hours to complete). Upon arrival, I was asked to wait in the lobby and then I was approached by three women who sat down with me to chat. The setting was a little distracting and uncomfortable. I expected we would go into a room. The interviewers were not prepared which felt disrespectful to my time. They were reading my responses to my questions as I sat there. Since this place is so competitive to get an interview with in the first place I never expected the weird awkward interaction that I had. Was told I wouldn't be working with clients and then later on in the interview I was looked down upon for expressing interest in unplugging on the weekends. Overall it was super conflicting and confusing and I wasn't quite sure I'd want to work there if offered the position. Salary was never mentioned although they were asking me to be avail 24/7 to moderate client's social channels. This isn't something I have an issue with but I think when asking that someone work that much they should also be clear about compensation.
