    I have been working at Goodlord full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Goodlord is a 'people' first business. There is an engrained positive culture at the company that encourages team members to be themselves and produce amazing work. I think a lot of this has to do with the company values and how they ripple down through the SLT and managers. There is a great buzz in the office and genuine friendships have been built here. There is real focus on mental health and wellbeing - socials, running club, yoga and Sanctus coaching. Leadership do a great job communicating company goals and pains with the team.

    Cons

    More snacks can never hurt and we are genuinely running out of space pretty fast.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Goodlord (London, England) in August 2019.

    Interview

    A disorganised interview process that created a bad impression of the company, which is a shame because they seemed like there was a good office culture and they are expanding as a business.

    There was no phone interview, just a face to face with a few members of the marketing team which seemed quite rushed. They didn’t seem to have many questions prepared.

    After that there was a take home design task, with two briefs to pick from. They did not send brand guidelines and explained this was deliberate because they are unhappy with their current brand guidelines. I had 2 working days and a weekend to complete the task, so lots of time. I received feedback two days later via email and was told to arrange a phone call in a few weeks if I wanted more feedback over the phone, which was disappointing.

    The feedback was that whilst they liked a lot of aspects of my approach and design, they didn’t feel it really reflected the brand voice. This is perfectly valid feedback and a completely understandable way to select a candidate. However, it’s frustrating to be judged on your ability to interpret a brand tone of voice when no details of the brand tone of voice were given. Logically it makes no sense and it wasted my time and theirs.

    Ultimately I would not discourage anyone from applying for a position here but I would go in with the assumption that they will be disorganised and key information might not be communicated. Therefore, ask lots of questions!
