    I have been working at Performics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Performics has good benefits and perks for employees, and provides a lot of training opportunities and chances to learn things outside of your daily responsibilities, if you want it.

    Cons

    They are really trying to expand their offering to be a full service digital agency, and change the reputation that they are mainly a search agency. Some of the growing pains mean that there isn't always support in all the new disciplines (like social media), but this is great way to learn and grow and be on the ground floor, as long as you don't need a lot of hand holding.

    Advice to Management

    Understanding that clients needs come first and this may not always be possible, but it would be good to provide more opportunities to employees to be able to apply the new skills they are learning outside of paid search, so they are more cross functional. I think this is the ultimate goal of the company but it could be good to have some sort of rotational program to get people achieve that and be more competitive in the industry, and also retain talent.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Performics (Chicago, IL) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I was told the process would be a phone screen with a recruiter, another phone screen with the hiring manager, and then an in-person interview. However, after my phone screen with the hiring manager I had additional phone screens with executive directors and then never heard back from anyone. The calls all went well, and it was surprising and disappointing to never get an update on the position.
