    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at AKQA (New York, NY (US)) in June 2018.

    Interview

    They reached out to me via a social network. I was a little wary as it wasn't my first rodeo with a WPP owned company and the last one was outright terrible on many levels.

    The exchanges from this network went silent for about a week, the person was out for a major holiday. We connected when he got back and after jumping on the phone for 1hr he passed my information along to a hiring manager within 15 minutes of said call.

    This is where it just went downhill. Took the hiring manager about a week (not including the weekends) to get back to me. Phone screening was set up, a little backwards at this point but no worries. From there it took them a few days to set up an onsite interview. Got there and thought I crushed it, despite problems from them like the person not recognizing my name as the one he got in touch with online and a switch up in who I was interviewing with. Then they just went silent. No follow up as they promised and when I tried to email and follow up on my end I got nothing. New York has a serious problem and it's not just AKQA.

    Ghosting is an issue here and I've identified large parts of it. NYC is completely hipsterfied and most of these tight jean folks now run the show or are the gatekeepers. I think many also have cultural and racial problems as well. I don't think it's outright racism, I just don't think they're used to intellects or equals of a darker complexion and in most agencies many of these people only have white friends. That's a problem but you can't force people to embrace other races.

    Even if they made me an offer I'd have to seriously consider it and if there were other options on the table for even less money I'd take that first over AKQA. They're not as good as they think they are and I can see challenges with clients and peers in this environment when all you're trying to do is keep your head down and do awesome work.
