I worked at Vertical Measures full-time (More than 3 years)
The company culture is a reflection of the quality of the executive leadership team. VM has eight core values that they live and practice daily. They hire the best of the best, and you'll learn something new every day . These are very smart people -- who check their egos at the door. This is a company that truly cares about its employees. For example, before they moved to their new offices in 2016, they mapped out where everyone commuted from and tried to choose a location that suited all 40-some employees. Amazing. Beyond that, they've been in rapid growth mode for the last year, and that's because of the excellent reputation and high quality work they are known for. Even though I left to pursue something different, I'd hire them without hesitation to be my new company's digital agency. The work-life balance is excellent, and so are the benefits.
All of their pros could also be cons -- rapid growth means lots of change, and change can be hard for some people and processes. Career paths aren't always completely clear; they promote from within, but there isn't always a clear path to job growth.
Advice to Management
Even though a team may seem like a well-oiled machine, they still want to hear from leadership and can benefit from improvements, mentorship and accolades. Try not to lose focus on those teams, especially when you're in rapid growth mode and onboarding new clients and team members.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Vertical Measures (Scottsdale, AZ).
Before the interview process I was emailed and requested to answer some essay questions. After the email screen, I was given a phone screen, average STAR questions, why Vertical Measures and why this role. After successfully getting through that I was given a group interview where I went through a number of behavioral questions. Some interviewers asked in depth questions regarding my resume. Although this was an SEO role I was never really asked about SEO since it was entry level however I would recommend researching on it just in case. Overall, it was not difficult as long as you are prepared and overall understand your work history.
