Mission: To develop breakthrough brands through empowering experiences rather than paid media interruptions.
I worked at Questus full-time (More than 3 years)
Questus is an ambitious agency with a big vision and passionate leaders. Most of the accounts are major global brands and the work is top notch. The people make this place great, I count my co-workers at Questus as close friends. Company culture, compensation and benefits were great, and the company events were major highlights.
Like most agencies, work/life balance was challenging. It was also hard for employees working full-time out of the client's office to feel connected to the agency in SF/NY - these people worked in difficult circumstances and were often forgotten.
Advice to Management
Remember that the Questus family extends outside of SF/NY.
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Questus.
I went through a 3-step interview process. The first interview was a phone interview with the head of client services out in Cali. That went well and I moved on to a few in-person interviews with a group account lead, producer, and head of strategy in the NY office. Again, all interviews went well. The last step was to present a creative brief to both NY and Cali offices. I was told to pretend I was presenting to my creative team, which I did, and in my current role, the "presentation" would be pretty casual. Not knowing what was expected, I wasn't sure how the last interview went, until I was notified that they went with another candidate.
