I have been working at Resource Interactive full-time (More than 3 years)
Good friends, great benefits, awesome projects that look great on your resumé, super-smart, super-talented co-workers, a pretty office, nice amenities, great location, and you can bring your dog to work.
I've luckily survived several rounds of layoffs. However, it's left me shell-shocked. I get the feeling my turn is coming up. I've secretly started bringing things back home from the office so I don't have a lot to carry if the worst happens. Also, pretty much anywhere else pays more money, but not everywhere else has the cool benefits.
Advice to Management
If you're going to pretend to be a tech-based ad agency, hire more artists, managers, and client services people who have actually coded things in the recent past. I've seen too many well-intentioned managers promise completely crazy things in even crazier time-frames, seen too many creatives make beautiful-yet-completely-inappropriate and unusable graphics, seen too many SRS's with bullet points that have nothing to do with anything. They should either get more technical people, promote the technical people they have into other positions, or give up and go back to just doing gorgeous, static, paper ads.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Resource Interactive in January 2015.
The interview was process was very organized and put together. I was contacted through a internal recruiter and our phone screen and email exchanges were very pleasant and straight forward. The actual interview was a round robin of 4 people, back to back. I found it very refreshing to talk to different people in different positions to get a true feel for who the company is, and also get a feeling of how each person is motivated and driven to be there.
