    I worked at CJ Affiliate full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Incredibly intelligent staff
    - A lot of promotion from within
    - Compensation is strong
    - Healthy think tank

    Cons

    - They're behind their competition with tech and they know it
    - Their engineering team is about 10% of the size it should be
    - Outsourcing client-facing tasks to foreign countries who have little to no knowledge of the industry of common US business practices
    - Rely on their overworked teams to train new employees while keeping up with their book of business
    - Very few client support resources for the primary client success team to rely on helping paint the full picture. AKA - One team is expected to do WAY too much.
    - A lot of clients who treat their team like an agency (very demanding, little appreciation) vs an extension of their business

    Advice to Management

    Stop experimenting with how much the board can bend without breaking. Because most of the time, your boards are shattering into 100 pieces.

    I get the "Parents" are only giving you so much flexibility, but fight, dammit! You're going to (and have) lose a lot of your most intelligent pro-CJ employees if you keep working them to death. You think you're weeding out the "simple" employees who aren't willing to put in the effort for maximum results. In fact, you're weeding out the smart ones who are saying "I'm too good for this s**t."

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at CJ Affiliate (New York, NY (US)) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I arrived and had to take a 50 question text in 12 minutes.. multiple choice on the computer. It wasn't difficult, but I definitely didn't do well because I was sort of rushing to answer as many as possible. I wasn't prepared to take this nor was I told that I wasn't expected to finish it, so I rushed quite a bit. Then I was taken to a panel interview. 3 people interviewed me. I was in the conference room with them for about 2 hours. It was very conversational and I was comfortable. However, that was way too long. I felt that it got a bit repetitive. I also developed a migraine halfway through so the extra hour was painful.
