    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Real Magnet full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Nimble team where good ideas matter more than office politics. High impact employees are given freedom to drive change. Company offers 100% paid healthcare plans and generous salaries. Work/Life balance is possible.

    Cons

    No 401k match or disability insurance. High impact employees do a disproportionate amount of the work (even more-so than usual). Office space does not fit the needs of the company or the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Upgrade the office space and realign the employe structure so that work is divided more evenly. Hire more high impact / A players instead of settling for good enough.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Real Magnet (Bethesda, MD) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online. I heard back in about a week. I had a phone interview for about 30 minutes. Fairly professional. Asked the usual questions about my sales background, why I wanted to apply to Real Magnet, and what I knew about market automation. I was interviewed by one person, but because we were on speaker phone, I suspected someone else was listening in on our conversation. Frankly, I was a little hesitate in applying for the position, because of the extreme negative reviews about the company. The person interviewing me didn't seem very enthusiastic in speaking with me, but in all fairness to him, maybe he was having a bad day, or had been busy conducting a lot of phone interviews. Also, I was originally told they were planning to hire 2 Business Development (Sales) people, but he decided to only hire one person for now. Unsure why, but maybe just testing the waters. As a result of his decision, I never had a chance to come in for a face-to-face interview.
