I have been working at 23andMe (More than a year)
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.
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.

- No OfferNeutral ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at 23andMe (Mountain View, CA) in March 2015.
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
- 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
