      National exposure and access to leading technologies. Great technical employees.


      No access to the great technical employees. Downsizing was constant and management turnover was constant.

        G/O Digital has become a family to me after 2 years working for the company. I was hired on, when they were experiencing exponential growth; so, everything was exciting and moving fast. Everything slowly went down hill, once we became a part of Tegna (especially in the last year).


        IMPORTANT. PLEASE READ. Just like any other digital-related company, we grew too fast, got too cocky, and now hundreds of employees are paying the price, because poor decisions were made, which resulted in significant downsizing in order to save money. At this time, G/O Digital is not going to be a good fit if you are wanting to invest in a company and build your career. I highly recommend to stay away, because actions are going to continually be executed to save money this year in 2017. You'll notice a significant amount of bad reviews coming in as a late; so, please don't take this caution as a one-off. Everyone single department at G/O Digital has been affected, not just typical entry level 'sales' jobs. Entry level/team leads/managers/directors are being affected. While no job is ever 'safe', G/O Digital is definitely not at this time. This is common in almost every single place you work for, but politics are apparent in terms of moving up within the company.

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)



      I finished final round interview. Should I send a thank you letter to everyone or only to people where I have something interesting to add on. I interviewed with the hiring manager twice already and sent thank you emails. He never responds, should I even bother to send him one more since we talked again in the final round? HR said I wouldn’t hear back until late next week earliest. It sounds like they still have to wrap up final rounds with other people. I don’t want them to forget me.


      Urban Health Plan

      I interviewed for a position virtually and in person both interviews went well. I sent my Thank you email and never heard back from the department. They were interested in me and asked me to reach back out to them, it’s surprising they never responded to me.


      Data Engineer

      Got a possible interview coming up with Pepsico as a data engineer in the DFW, TX area. It's more towards an entry-beginner type of role. Anyone know what kind of questions I should be expecting in the technical part of the interview?
