        Business Outlook


        -Tight-knit Team with Excellent Rapport. Strives for greatness, despite problems with management. Never been easier to find friends at a workplace. -Excellent Compensation -Easy workload -CEO is very easy to talk to, even if other managers are not.


        -Creative Leadership are Unfortunately Cynical and Business-Minded, will not rise to meet your enthusiasm, seek out input, or strive for improvement. Managers were also decidedly passive aggressive and uninterested, especially during exit interviews, and tried to shift blame onto me, instead of rising to meet the issues they were presented with. This is problematic for managers who are close friends with one another, most of whom face no threat of termination and will never choose leave the studio. -Disconnected Pipeline, Unclear Direction, and Arbitrary and Enigmatic Decision-Making. It's easier to keep your head down and listen to instructions on a micro scale than try to collaborate on the big picture. Your input will not be sought out, and unless you create friction by protesting leadership, your expertise will not be heard. At times, you will feel like a reluctant tool, and not a collaborator. Not a healthy place for creatives. -Too relaxed; everyone will spin their wheels trying to communicate through disjointed pipelines, and by the time work needs to ramp up, nobody has any kind of plan or logic to follow to the finish. -Culture is clique-oriented, for better and for worse. Some joking goes on behind other's backs, and there's a clear lack of transparency between seniors; work will often be ignored or omitted without proper conversation. Clique culture makes accepting other voices more difficult, people working through cultural and language barriers are often ignored or unheard. -I inquired about a leadership position with the hopes of solving some of the issues above, but was discouraged based on the assumption that I was only interested in having more control. The conversation was embarrassing for me, and cast a lot of doubts with leadership.

      Interview Tips

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


      Johnson & Johnson

      At the end of the interview, the interviewer said “HR will be in contact with you very soon”. Does this mean I got the job since it’s HR and not the recruiter or am I overthinking this? Any tips to ease post late stage interview anxieties?

      Process Coordinator

      I have an in-person interview for a job I applied for earlier this summer and was in the final 2. They went with an internal candidate that time. I had 3 interviews the first time, but none in-person. This is the first interview this time. Is that a really good sign? Or should I not read into it? Also, I haven't had a professional in-person interview for 7 years, what do I wear? (female, 40's)
