I have to echo many of the others who have mentioned that a lot of people who work here are smart, interesting and creative. Snacks.
Anyone with a broad spectrum of experience other agencies or walks of life prior to joining the company was incredibly undervalued. Despite seeming organized and on the cutting-edge, the foundational business practices were not just confusing but couldn't possibly be successful - for instance, there was no actual time tracking so everyone was wildly over or under-allocated and accounts were either wildly over or under-servicing. It was very clear that the executive team didn't have much experience themselves. When I started, vacation days were "unlimited" and employee's were reimbursed up to $2k for insurance OOPs. Those unlimited vacation days was blatantly only a perk for the most tenured employees and no one else. When the health insurance requirements changed, we all took a $2k hit to our compensation packages and despite multiple questions on the matter, the issue was ignored by management. A lot of decisions that impacted the company (like health insurance) were done through Slack voting, which seemed insane. The sale to a holding company was quite disappointing. All of the work is content work. Period. And most big efforts are just opportunities to increase the Creative Director's portfolio, regardless of sound strategy for clients. If you want your entire life (including your social life) to revolve around ISL, you're golden.

I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at iStrategyLabs (Washington, DC)
InterviewApplied and was asked to come into the office for an in-person interview the next week. My interviewer was over 15 minutes late. They walked me to a private office and said only, "Tell me about yourself." They asked me no other questions and left me to fill in the awkward silences. It was incredibly clear they had no interest in me, not even caring to glance at my resume or portfolio. They ended the interview 5 minutes earlier and started it 15 minutes later. It was the most uncomfortable and unprofessional interview I have ever had. Seriously, both of our time could've been saved with a mere initial phone interview.Interview
