    I worked at Participant Media full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The HR team at Participant did an excellent job of communicating with employees and encouraging a collaborative environment and positive company culture.

    Cons

    Some former executive management leaders were a bit closed-minded to the evolving media landscape which resulted in a trickle down of limited capabilities in the marketplace.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Participant Media (Los Angeles, CA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, but received no response. Reached out to the VP of Social Impact who immediately forwarded my email and got me an interview. Spoke over the phone for about 30 min with HR for Social Impact and following this process, would have been an in-person interview with the manager
