    Great company - treats its employees very well, and everyone here is smart and helpful. Definitely a company teeming with expertise.


    Team personalities vary. No two teams are the same, and not all are good fits for certain people. Otherwise, no major cons.

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Resolution Media.


    I was called in for multiple final round interviews with different teams. I contacted them multiple times for updates on the status of my application following my final rounds, but I never heard back. They've simply ignored me. Very disheartening since I got the impression this place was different. It costs candidates time and money to interview; the least you can do is get back to candidates to tell them they didn't get the job—especially after they contact you for updates and you just ghost them. Very unprofessional.
