Late last year, at the height of digital burnout trends & “Zoom fatigue” we’ve all likely experienced, Propeller employees participated in an optional internal workshop called “Propeller United” to instill creative methods to battle burnout, beyond the typical remedies you’re probably used to hearing. The impact of this pilot series was so valuable to our employees that we had to offer it publicly. Please join our People & Change Practice Director, Rachel Crocker, Wednesday, March 31st from 12-1pm PST to unpack these tactical steps you can take to battle burnout and build resiliency in your life and work. You’ll come away with simple, yet powerful methods to re-ignite your energy, passion, and grit, and become a beacon of hope for others. Register here:

    Average Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at Propeller (San Francisco, CA)


    It was a series of three interviews, all with different employees, and sometimes with more than one employee. It was a very formulaic process and they are looking for by-the-book answers, not creative thinking. Because they primarily look for local clients, their pool of potential clients is smaller. So their MO is to work slowly and keep their consultants working like employees of their clients. As such, they don't want to solve problems too quickly and tend to favor complicated engagements via addressing things simply and straight-forwardly.
