    Pros

    - Kobie Marketing isn't perfect, and by no means is it polished, but therein lies the opportunities. Kobie understands what it needs to do and move towards, and the opportunities that are available to teammates are endless in terms of getting there. If you want to take on challenging assignments and learn from them, Kobie Marketing provides that. This was actually my main reason for coming to Kobie, as there's a lot that can be done to improve Kobie. Perhaps if you're set in your ways and are resistant to change, you wouldn't last here.

    - Work Life balance is as competitive as it gets. As long as you're getting quality work done, there's no problem in regards to you working from 'home' even though you may be in the Bahamas.

    - Whenever a new opportunity arises, it can be fun seeing the overwhelming positive energy everyone pours into it, such as a potential new client or a fundraising event.

    Cons

    - Sometimes it feels like there isn't nearly enough being done to address internal issues and inefficiencies. There is a lot that needs to be fixed and optimized within our internal systems and databases.

    - Different information lives in different places and systems without any cohesiveness in how they're presented.

    - There's still more work that needs to be done in transitioning from a 'talking' culture to a 'doing' culture. We're great at identifying our problems, but the time spent in identifying the problems are wasted if we can't consistently create an action plan that everyone can get behind.

    Advice to Management

    - Senior leadership, keep up the great work in receiving feedback and taking it to heart.

    - Perhaps look into acquiring an business systems analyst and/or an organizational analyst to help set up parameters on what workflows should look like, how organizational structure is managed, etc.

    Front End Design Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ months. I interviewed at Kobie Marketing (Saint Petersburg, FL (US)) in April 2019.

    Interview

    I applied online in April and had one phone interview with an internal recruiter, who became my main contact for the entire process. I then had a phone interview with the hiring manager for the role, who invited me in for an on-site half-day interview with multiple members of the team.

    During that interview, I sat in an office and had groups of two come in to interview me. The interviewers were of all levels of experience (junior, mid-level, managers, etc.). I then finished up that day with an interview with the hiring manager.

    I was told that there were a few more applicants who would be doing final interviews, so it would be a few weeks before I would hear anything. The internal recruiter sent me at least two emails during that time frame to let me know I wasn't being counted out and to hold tight.

    In the meantime, I received a personal email from one of the interviewers asking if I'd be interested in doing freelance work (not for Kobie but for an acquaintance/friend). While it was a nice gesture, it was odd to receive since I hadn't heard anything more about the role I had applied for.

    Five months later with zero communication from the hiring manager or internal recruiter until that point, I received an automated response letting me know I was not selected for the role.
