    Pros

    The company is a good size to where any employee can really make a difference. Your opinions and ideas are welcome and there's collaboration among the teams to come up with creative solutions to tough problems. There's a lot of smart people which helps create a positive environment to learn and grow. Employees are recognized in a variety of ways - from management to peers - helping employees feel valued for work well done. And the environment is casual making it easy to make friends. They struggled in the past with ensuring there's accountability across the organization, but have made a lot of improvements to address this.

    Cons

    Resourcing can be a challenge when there are multiple projects requiring the same team. And while there is an extensive list of contractors, it can be hard to get them up and running fast. Process has room for improvement - some things have too much process which others don't have enough -- I think they are still working on this balance. I wish there was a larger common area where you can eat lunch with a group.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on only the things that will help you reach your long-term goals. Ensure that every client you take on is the right target market and right project for your expertise.

    Digital Strategist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Springbox (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    I applied for the Digital Strategist position via LinkedIn and quickly received an email from a recruiter to set up a phone call. The initial call went well and I felt optimistic. I was scheduled for another call with a hiring manager that also was a success in my mind. SB then wanted me to come in to present my findings on how they could grow their own business and insights for how they could improve their website to generate new leads. First of all, this was a weird "assessment." The company doesn't really have a developed strategy for marketing itself - which is a bit ironic since it is a digital marketing agency.

    Still, I later emailed an HR manager after I presented just to follow up on the hiring process. I got the sense they had interviewed a lot of people for this position. I never heard back despite being told that they "would be in touch."

    Look, I get it, hiring is a process. But it would have been nice to receive either a "yes" or "no" if I would be moving forward after the third interview. Just a general courtesy these days, right?

    Anyway, looks like the person that I would be reporting to just left the company, so maybe it is a blessing in disguise.
