    I have been working at UM full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good company culture, a lot of perks with food drinks lunches exc. Won a lot of new business recently so the company is trending upward

    Cons

    Not a lot of clarity when it comes to growth within the company. No clear cut plan or update on promotions. A lot of late nights.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at UM (Detroit, MI).

    Interview

    It was lengthy, I must have interviewed with five different people. Although this is somewhat endemic to the industry, it seems unwarranted the number of people I spoke to that I no longer ever see or work for.
