    I have been working at Media Storm full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to work on great accounts and have a ton of client exposure. Managers care about their teams. Definitely more laid back atmosphere than the big agency life.

    Cons

    Would be great if there was more cohesion between offices.

    Advice to Management

    Individual managers should communicate with their teams more.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Media Storm in April 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online via LinkedIn and a hiring manager reached out a few days later.

    Initially I found it odd due to the fact I was asked to apply for other positions via an emailed link, despite being contacted in regards to the Programmatic role I had applied for.

    The phone interview was long and took about 45 minutes but was not too difficult. At the end of the interview she informed me that the position would pay only 35k non negotiable, causing a bit of a hang up on my part.

    We spoke a bit further and she knew that the salary was a bit low but we agreed to let me have the weekend to mull it over and decide if I would like to go further (phone interview was on Friday).

    After the weekend passes I send her a followup email letting her know I am interested in the role but was curious as to how fast the role progresses in regards to room for advancement.

    I never received an email from her after my 1 (initial thank you directly after our phone interview), 2 (the email on monday saying I am still interested) and a 3rd on Friday asking if she could answer the questions I had asked.

    All in all, this company is extremely unprofessional ghosting their candidates and the HR person has soured my outlook on the company as a whole. I'd advise against wasting your time here.
