Location: The office was right on 40th between 5th and 6th (Bryant Park)
The idea is a good ideaCons
- Leadership skills were non existent. The management there did not care in the least about the staff and just wanted to get the next client, whatever it took.
- The compensation was below average but not horrible. However, when raises came around, they made it seem like they were doing you a favor if they raised your salary.
- ZERO training on the product. They give you outdated documentation and a login and ask you to figure it out. And you better do it quick.
- The machines there were all old. You're working on Windows 2000 or XP at best and all the software that you NEED to do your job is either pirated and/or old as well. Aside from that the performance is ridiculously slow. There is no care to invest in their staff's equipment and ask you to do the job with what you get.
- They constantly asked you to work late nights but had no tolerance for late arrivals or working from homeAdvice to ManagementAdvice

- Application Details
I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at 7thOnline.com.Interview Details
The interview process was not too bad. There was one phone screening and one on-site interview.
The HR representative asked general questions (e.g. Why am I looking to leave my current position, tell me a little about yourself, etc). Nothing caught me off guard or was too difficult. Shortly after this (a day or so) I received an email where I was asked to come in for a on-site interview.
The location was nice - it is right by Bryant Park. Here I met with three people - my would-be boss, his boss, and the CEO (small start up). The interview with the person who ended up being my manager was again simple. He did ask technical questions, asked about my SQL experience, and some other things. The interview with his boss was more business related and we spoke about long-term goals, and training scenarios. Finally the meeting with the CEO was, in my opinion more of a formality. He explained how he starter the company, asked me about my background, and we spoke about the company's vision and what the main goal of the product was. Then I had to take a written test that asked some analytical and brain teaser questions but nothing too hard.
It wasn't a hard interview and as long as you're prepared you will be fine.Negotiation DetailsThe original offer was lower than what I expected and when I when to negotiate for a higher base, they only went up 2k more and made it seem like they were really reaching and doing me a huge favor. I responded by providing market value for this position and asked for a review within 6 months which they did give me.Accepted OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
