    I have been working at Motive Interactive full-time (More than 3 years)


    - Awesome office
    - Beer fridge / plenty of snacks and drinks / constant free lunches and parties
    - Weekly massage therapist
    - Lots of company branded swag
    - Plenty of autonomy in work
    - Flexible hours with opportunity to work from home on occassion
    - Commissions based on overall company growth as well as individual growth
    - Excellent work stations (new computers, mice, keyboards, monitors)
    - Lots of shared space to collaborate and or just hang out and chat with co-workers
    - Management is quick to act on new ideas


    - Repetitiveness in daily job (probably most jobs though)
    - No 401k match (this should be a given)
    - No company equity (would be cool)
    - Forced "9 to 5" (sometimes you finish your daily work early)

    Advice to Management

    Motive is trying to bring a little bit of that frantic high-tech San Francisco style of company to laid-back So Cal and has succeeded in many ways, but also has its faults. The industry itself is fairly cutting edge, but we're not changing the world, there's no need to try to convince the staff that we're doing something greater during this short time we're here on earth. We're serving ads. Companies have served ads long before us, and will long after we're gone, let's just have fun with it while we can!

    The best part about Motive is the collaboration and the people. Management does a great job at hiring, and if you are so lucky to get a job here, treasure it! You can make the job what you want, there's plenty of people who would rather come in, do their work and leave, which is fine, they get their 'stuff' done, but there's also those who enjoy working together, solving problems and using the shared spaces in the office to toss around new ideas. The new office spaces are very conducive for such a growing group of people.

    We spend so much time at work and management, especially the CEO, really tries to make Motive a place that you want to brag to your friends and family about, and I do!

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Motive Interactive (San Diego, CA) in January 2018.


    At first I had a phone interview. Then, they had me create a mock press release and then I had an in-office interview. Very friendly and welcoming. All staff that I met was friendly and the office space was very modern and looked like a fun environment.
