    Pros

    Employees are exposed to many different opportunities from the get-go at Universum. You have the autonomy to dive into what interests you, and get involved in much more than your designated scope. It feels good to be a part of a team of energetic professionals who are passionate about fostering an innovative and creative space. You'll be challenged everyday and will collaborate to achieve more than you realized you could. Accelerate your professional development alongside peers who care about your growth -- both inside and outside of the office.

    Cons

    If your looking for a work experience with more structured hand-holding, then the fast-paced and dynamic environment at Universum may not be the right fit.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing the level of innovation within the Employer Branding space, and continue to empower employees in all regions by being the visionaries of a rapidly growing industry.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Universum (Philadelphia, PA) in February 2011.

    Interview

    This comany is more messed up than most. They interviewed 10 people before me and liked no one. They verbally offered me a job and the written offer never came. I think they were just looking to pick as many brains as they could with no real job opportunity.
