    Negative Outlook

    I worked at SmithBucklin full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It’s a stepping stone to get a better job.

    Cons

    Leadership is poor and culture is toxic. Small company with big company politics. Lack of communication and trust between executive team results in no clear vision, and if you are in the CPG group it means you get a lot of misguided information and no clear vision or leadership. Run do not walk away - the place is toxic.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure the company. It’s too heavy with senior execs who lack vision and the qualities that make great leaders.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at SmithBucklin (Chicago, IL (US)) in November 2019.

    Interview

    There was a phone screen interview, a Skype interview with the hiring manager, and an on-site interview that consisted of two 30-minute interviews with two different team members.

    I was overall pleased until, after spending 8 weeks going through this process and it being made clear I was a top candidate and being in consistent contact with the team during the decision process, I never received a call to let me know I was not chosen for the position. It rubbed me the wrong way as it was an extremely long process and I committed a lot of time to it.
