    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Sopexa full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fun products in the food and wine industry, has some fun events.
    Casual
    Forward thinking Senior Management.
    The team really is super enthusiastic about what they're doing.
    Excellent benefits.
    If you need agency experience, this is a good place.

    Cons

    If you aren't on the Accounts team or not French, it can be a struggle to have your voice heard or to speak with the client.
    No Project Managers to take over administrative work or make sure the lines of communication are open.
    Their government clients are pretty stingy and uninterested in Digital or B2C.

    Advice to Management

    I wish I enjoyed working at Sopexa more than I did, but the communications issue and top down structure, where people weren't interested in collaborating, was a negative. The language barrier also did not help. Also, until they get more clients who care about Digital work there is not much room for growth in that department or in anything other than Accounts. I'd suggest hiring more Americans and maybe a Project Manager to facilitate communication and help teams work together. Also, be open to hiring people who can't speak French.

    I'm recommending for someone who wants entry level Agency experience, if only because I think their outlook as a company is bright and I know they are trying to address their shortcomings. Also, food & wine is possibly the best industry to work in!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sopexa (New York, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I found this internship through my school. My career advisor contacted me about this opportunity, knowing that I was looking for an internship in the Public Relations field. I emailed the company with my information and resume, they replied to me within the hour and we arranged an interview 2 days later. After the interview, they made me do a small exercise of writing a press release to review my writing and PR skills, and less than a week later I was starting!
