I worked at Wolff Olins full-time
Passionate, talented people who care about making a difference in the world and your personal development
Distributed leadership structure, no managing directors, just coaches
Great projects with world-class brands
Opportunity to kickstart internal ventures
Like any organisation, there's politics and favouritism
More difficult for younger, more junior people to shine
Behind on technology and digital innovation
I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Wolff Olins.
Wolff Olins doesn't advertise their available positions on a number of career websites, like other companies do. The idea is that those who are interested in WO will actively seek out job opportunities from their website. I applied by sending in my resume and cover letter in March and received an email in May asking to schedule an interview. I had a behavioral interview (15 min with one Account Management employee, 15 min with another) over Skype mostly just talking through my resume and my interest in the company. They emailed me back afterwards, asking for a follow-up interview. I had another brief behavioral Skype interview with two higher-ups from Account Management. They emailed me afterwards, extending an offer for the internship.
No negotiation about salary. They pay all interns a fixed amount per month (and extra for overtime). No housing stipend available either.
