Mission: WIN THE TRANSACTION
I have been working at SBC Advertising full-time (More than a year)
I have had the privilege of working with people from every department, and every title. The people of SBC are talented as hell, intelligent, and incredibly hard working. Many of the negative reviews I've read both before I was hired and current appear to come from people with very limited understanding of both the state of the industry and good work ethic. Other's may have encountered or dealt with "negative" people in the workplace - but short of personality quirks, I have had no trouble with the people I've worked with. It's a very casual enviroment, we're all very sincere and respectful of each other's opinions. Collaboration is something I think SBC does exceptionally well, and is continuing to hone and improve every day as more individuals are given opportunities to prove themselves and contribute to our growth. We're in a state of change, but just about everyone in this industry is or has been for a while now. Those that remain with SBC are truly the best of the best. Every day I am impressed and awed by the strength everyone brings to a challenge, and the ingenuity that grows from great minds working well together. I love what I do, I feel challenged (in a healthy way), and I feel respected by my peers. The past SBC has been described very differently depending on who you speak to, and ultimately, it's future is what I care about. The future of SBC is what the leadership and everyone there now are working toward and contributing to. The leadership is obviously working (tirelessly lately) to ensure SBC thrives even when the climate is not ideal for Agencies.
I genuinely have no cons.
Advice to Management
I wish everyone truly knew and saw everything you did so there were no more naive comments about current leadership at SBC, cuz it's all bull. Leadership at SBC rocks, and I'm grateful to work with them all.
I applied online. I interviewed at SBC Advertising.
Very streamlined and straightforward. Turnaround is quick. I think between the phone screen and final interview (I interviewed with two people from upper management and then was brought back in to meet with who would be my direct manager), that I only waited around two weeks. Interview is very, very easy. It seems like they are more interested in your personality than experience or educational background.
