Mission: Orman Guidance empowers consumers to build the marketplace they want and need.
I have been working at Orman Guidance full-time (More than a year)
The business model continues to shift toward full-service, "Research & Guidance" which is a super fun and interesting way to connect to the highest levels of market research.
The company needs more focused training. It's getting better, but could get better still.
Advice to Management
Keep the projects coming -- especially R&G. Draw on the pool of talent to help move more and more clients to this service.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Orman Guidance (Bloomington, MN) in February 2012.
I already worked at the company that for which I was interviewing, so the process was a little different than usual. It went like this:
Initial Phase- we had a problem with outreach. My boss knew of my background and suggested I help. I wrote up a brief and sat down with HR to present it.
Questions Phase- after a week I was contacted for more ideas by HR, I said I would like to discuss a position before any more ideas are given. That email was forwarded to the management level and they planned a meeting to sit down and interview me. Scheduling conflicts arose and the sit down couldn't happen, so I was asked about my ideas over the phone and ways I would implement them.
Presentation Phase- after the phone interview I was asked to come in and present my ideas in more detail. After that was finished I was offered the position and started the next week.
