    I have been working at Noble Desktop full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    So far, I've worked at Noble Desktop for 18 great years. I'm proud of the work I've done and I'm happy with how I've been treated.

    The founder, Scott Carson, did an amazing job creating and growing this business from scratch. How many people can create a business that continues for 28 years in NYC? Scott truly cares about the students and employees and wants the best for everyone. While Scott did not come from a business background, he is smart and often made very keen decisions that many people would not have had the insight for.

    Noble teaches many students each year, with a relatively small staff (an office staff of about 4-6 people, plus teachers). That means everyone is important to the operation. It's been nice to be able to see the impact I (and others) have had, and to be able to take concerns directly to the person in charge.

    Cons

    Noble has a small staff, so you must get along well with others. You won't get your own office so you can work in isolation. That's not a con for me, but maybe it is for some.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 10+ months. I interviewed at Noble Desktop (New York, NY) in December 2013.

    Interview

    It was a total mess and seesaw of emotions. I applied to Noble Desktop in December 2013. As part of the process, I put together a complete marketing analysis of their advertising (specifically email and social), as well as drafted a strategic brief and plan for growth via marketing partnerships with publishers and organizations. To say it was thorough would be an understatement.

    I went back and forth with the CEO for months on the position. We discussing the possibility of me working full-time, then the possibility of free-lance, then the possibility of consulting after they hired someone "green and inexpensive." For the amount of work that I put in, I would have normally asked for compensation. Ultimately I stopped communicating with the CEO as I could tell it was going nowhere, as he kept mentioning how little money he had for a salary and marketing.

    Were I asked to recommend any changes to their process, I would suggest that anyone willing to take part in their skills test to request an NDA for any work submitted, just to protect your IP. It's not fair to be asked to contribute a tangible and executable campaign without fair compensation. The company doesn't truly understand that marketing isn't free and desperately needs better leadership.
