I worked there on the marketing team. The pay is decent and WFH last fall (2021) was nice with the option of coming in once a week or more... but I did not like working there one bit. You're not allowed to ask questions and look to get rid of you as quickly as possible. I was told I wasn't working up to par and they couldn't give me an explanation or a way to improve - what kind of vague BS is that? Also, they told me that my doctor appointments made me unreliable, as if I hadn't done everything I needed to do on time since starting AND as if it wasn't borderline illegal to tell me I couldn't take doctor appointments.

It's a firm that exists. What specifically do you want to know about it that you can't find via google?

WLB, comp (specifically wondering if they offer market bonuses), WFH flexibility. Can’t find out from google if people actually like working there.

My manager asked me to attend a company presentation after work hours. She basically told me, since you're the most social, you should get other people into it, which i dont mind, but no one wants to go to this event. She herself isn't even attending it and i feel like as a manager she's setting a bad example and not being a good leader.

Hi all,
I had a video screening interview earlier last week, got an email back couple days later and this is what the email says ( referred to screenshot below).
I replied with a date and time which is today at 1:30pm- I still didn’t get a response. Needless to say I emailed them this morning to remind them.
What to make if this ?

Hi, does anyone have any tips for staying healthy and active with a 830-5 account manager job that’s fully in office?

Does anyone have itchy ears and have you found a solution? I’ve seen multiple ENTs and have tried ointments. I’ve seen a dermatologist and my primary. Nobody has been able to identify the problem. The inside of my ear itches as if someone were swiveling a feather in there slowly to torture me. Sometimes the skin flakes and peels out but usually it’s just dry and itchy and no skin ointment has helped.

Thread: I’ve been talking to this company for months and the recruiter has been in and out with communication. A few weeks ago, he reached out, apologized for the delay and explained they needed to figure out role priorities but that they’re moving forward, I’m a top candidate, & they wanted to wrap up interviews and extend an offer the following week. He never reached out to set up interviews and hasn’t replied to any of my calls or emails.
