    I worked at Mediabeacon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great technology. Thought leadership. kitchen full of snacks.

    Cons

    Senior management all bends to founders will - and he is a micro manager. No career path. Cannot retain people no matter what they do for the company (like that X IBM guy). The tone of the office is about what kind of mood Jason is in that day

    Advice to Management

    Spend some money to hire smart and retain smart people and believe in them.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Mediabeacon (Minneapolis, MN) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Phone screening followed by panel setting style interview. Some of the interviews are one on one, others are in a group setting of 2 or 3. Heavy on reference follow up and the HR person was responsive and kind.
