    Pros

    Smart people, exciting, mission-driven company, lots of transparency about the future of the company. You can see the impact of your work here. Standard Silicon Valley perks.

    Cons

    There aren't a lot of "levels" to advance through here so people who are into titles might not be happy.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the transparency. Balance the growth of the company with the wild child attitude that attracted the employees.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at 23andMe (Mountain View, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Recruiter Phone Screen with fairly detailed techno/functional questions, followed by hiring manager in depth telephonic interview discussing technology and program management skills and experience then an Assignment to complete

    Interview Questions

    • About Technology and PM skills. Mainly about overall understanding of large scale web applications, web services and Enterprise Systems stack. Overall project management skills such as schedule/budget management, issues resolutions etc. Followed by hands on assignment to create a project plan and initiation meeting to start a project and analyze scrum teams performance based on data. Once the results were shared, there was no feedback for quite a while and then upon followup recruiter told they are not moving forward. In my opinion, I was at least expecting the comment on the assignment given to be fair.   1 Answer
