    Pros

    They are a Very good family like setting and very family oriented. They make sure you're family is taken care of.

    Cons

    Sometimes management may not see the benefits to changing things up St big, not sure if it's because it makes their jobs easier or harder but for the most part they are always willing to listen and hear ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to your employees and keep being family oriented, it makes the employee want to stay longer even during the rough times.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Transvideo Studios (Mountain View, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I had interviewed with Transvideo<>Picturelab many years back with different faces. This time interviewed with a new face who was the hiring manager. Mostly situational questions, what expectations I have for my career trajectory, hypothetical crisis scenarios with other co-workers. Also got asked if anyone ever called me a jerk in past jobs which was new and different. The hiring manager didn't look at my portfolio during the interview which seemed odd at first. After the interview, we set up a time where I did a creative design test assessment for them. It required a 24 hour turnaround and albeit some ftp snafus I was able to submit links for review to them. Afterwards radio silence for a week or so. Finally after sending them a simple touch base email the HR rep told me they were still reviewing my work. A week later I was caught up with shipping a huge companywide design campaign and wasn't able to touch base with them. Once we did finally get in touch the HR rep told me they didn't have the budget to meet my low-end baseline salary so didn't get a sense of any benefits after the suggested 90 day probation period they wanted of me. That seemed to give me an indication as where the candidate would fit into their organization and was even pitched on the idea of trying to work both my role at my current job as well as do project based work for them which I vocalized I could not, we parted ways and ended conversation about said job. I think the company is still figuring out ways to scale efficiently to meet demands of regular business accounts as well as new clients and felt they just needed readily available contract to potentially hire creatives since their budget isn't huge. Seems like many roles need to be filled on the creative production side firsthand. With that said, they were very friendly and down to earth small operation and I due wish them the best in growing to meet the needs of the ever changing tech landscape that is the Bay Area.
