Mission: This new era of continuous disruption needs a new brand of management consulting laser-focused on helping large organizations nimbly negotiate an increasingly volatile business landscape. We help big act small.
I worked at Propeller (More than 3 years)
Unlimited PTO where you’re treated like an adult who can manage his/her own schedule is pretty great! Being able to choose to either take a bigger bonus or get more time off is freeing, too. The pay is fair (but do advocate for yourself, as with any other company...the first offer is never where you should land). Great colleagues! Super fun to work at a small company where you—and what you do—matters. Really invested leadership. But you have to be invested in putting yourself into the company to get the most out of it. Nobody is going to get you connected for you, so if you don’t feel connected it’s really up to you to fix that. And there are a LOT of opportunities!
Some projects are just boring. 401(k) matching is pretty average or maybe below average. And the company has never hit the target for performance so nobody has ever gotten a full bonus, so that stinks. And once you get to a certain level, there’s not much farther you can go.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Propeller (Portland, OR) in October 2013.
The interview process was fairly long, but professional. There were four interviews total, increasing in intensity. The first was essentially an informal meet and greet that seemed like a screen for red-flags. After that, there were two other interviews and then a case study which was presented to a panel.
