      Great work environment many HR initiatives. Good work life balance and flexibility. International environment and mostly friendly people.


      Once they see you are good at your job, they will block any option to change teams/departments. Not enough career development.

        Strong revenue growth, smartest group of people I have ever worked with, focus on growth through promotion of people through the business.


        Work/life balance can be tricky but COVID (and work from home) has actually helped with that!

        Thank you for your posting and for calling out the topics you have chosen relating to our growth and managing the careers of our people. Our people make our business and are fundamental to both our success as an agency and being able to offer a progressive environment to learn in. It is true that agency life is busy at times and our culture is fast paced but we hope this presents many opportunities to learn and grow.

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)


      Principal Customer Success Manager

      Are case studies/presentations a normal part of interview processes? This is in addition to several interview rounds. These typically take 2 days to do, and require of anywhere from 6-15 slides worth of information, and require deep dives into company product portfolios, use cases, competitive advantages, application to fictitious customer scenario JUST to present. It's exhausting to have to do multiples of these and feels like free labor.

      im beating myself up. I had 3rd interview yesterday. I think all interviews went well, particularly my 2nd one. In this one (and now that I’m thinking about it, this also happened in my first one) I accidentally started answering a question before the interviewer finished the question. When I realized I did this, I immediately stopped and said “im sorry I interrupted you, please continue”. When this happened yesterday, the interviewer stopped to jot something down. Did I cost myself the job??

      I’ve gone through too many interviews now, with some being extremely promising until the 3rd-4th round and I get hit with an email stating: “We’re putting this position on hold to refocus on what we really need from the role” Or something similar. What is going on with these job postings and then freezing the hiring? I can’t be just a Q4 thing because I’ve gone through this over the summer with multiple interviews. Is it me? Or is the market really that right for everyone right now?
