    I have been working at Scribe Media full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The culture of this company is its greatest strength. When the coronavirus hit, we all went virtual -- and still launched an entirely new product line in two weeks. Within a month that line was responsible for 20% of our revenue. That doesn't happen at a firm that doesn't have everyone pulling together.

    The cultural and social cohesion that allows us to thrive is the result of ongoing, daily work around our principles and values. We are relentless at keeping ourselves honest in regard to those values. They are trump cards that any tribe member can and does use in any conversation to make sure all of us, regardless of whether we are a new hire or a founder, live by our principles. And we actually do it. I've been in the working world for many decades, and I've never seen anything like this.

    Cons

    I'm a partisan -- I've been with Scribe almost since it was founded. I will say this: getting hired here is hard, because we hire for culture fit. If you try to fake it, you will be found out.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Scribe Media.

    Interview

    The interview process was long-ish and strenuous, but necessarily so. I interviewed with each Department Head and, by the end of the interview process, felt that they knew me pretty well and I knew what the company was all about.
