    I worked at Fishbowl Marketing full-time

    Pros

    All the silly freedoms that comes with being in a small startup. Also - fantastic work/life balance

    Cons

    The company exists simply due to the quality of the services team and the relationships they have wit clients. The product itself is about 10 years outdated -new management came in, laid off a bunch of people, made some acquisitions and is trying to thread together a product that will be 'groundbreaking.' No one has seen it, no one knows how it works, it was expensive to build, and the price tag is too expensive for clients. Meanwhile, the people who are holding everything together (client facing teams) feel flustered and with low morale, as they don't know what their future looks like.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on transparency and morale.

    Client Support Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Alexandria, VA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Fishbowl Marketing (Alexandria, VA (US)) in July 2014.

    Interview

    It started off simply enough with a recruiter interview, a phone interview, and a 1:1 with the team leader. Everything seemed to be running smoothly, they made me an offer the next day, and I accepted.

    Fast forward to a week later. The head of HR calls me to inform me that they've rescinded my offer due to the fact that I attempted to negotiate a salary. Keep in mind that their offer was below the industry standard for the area, I had another, much higher offer, and was just ensuring that I did my best in advocating for myself.

    Fishbowl did not appreciate this. After misrepresenting my education and experience to me (they told me I had a college degree and one year experience when, in fact, I have 2 masters from major public universities and had, at the time, 3 years support experience), they told me I should be grateful for my unliveably low offer and that I'd "disappointed them and couldn't be trusted."

    Needless to say, I put them in contact with my lawyer.
