    I worked at Addepar full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people are great and I got along with almost everyone. Work was enjoyable and fairly stress free comparing to other places I worked at. I really appreciate the fact that I was given the opportunity to work on various parts of the code base. The way Addepar approaches financial software is very different from the other financial software companies. The concept of the financial graph and transaction effects still impresses me up to this day. As a whole I grew a lot as a programmer and had many fond memories of hanging out at the office late at night, the hackathons, the mid night barbecue, Hearst Castle, the retreats at Lake Tahoe etc...

    Cons

    Some engineers have a huge ego and lack optimism. It bothers me when people bring negativity to the office. There are already plenty of ups and downs working in a start up and pessimism doesn't solve any problem. Anyways, I think those days are behind us now. The team restructuring and management shift in the last year was a little hard. Hopefully this doesn't happen too often.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think Addepar finally found the right management team to lead the company going forward. Eric has done an amazing job growing the company and keeping people happy. I am thoroughly impressed with his decision making and his leadership. Vlad has also done a great job in leading the engineering team and in particularly recruiting. I think he is definitely the right person to lead the engineering efforts.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Addepar.

    Interview Details

    Pretty standard process ... couple of pre-screens and then flew me out to Mountain View. 5-6 interviews (1 was write code on a laptop, 1 was debug code on a laptop, 1 systems design, and 2-3 standard algo questions on a whiteboard). Super smart team. Feedback was super quick (less than 1-2 day turnaround at every stage). Interview difficulty was probably a notch harder than Facebook, Palantir, etc ... (but absolutely no trick questions -- standard stuff any software engineer should know).

    Interview Questions
    • Same 5-6 concepts tested in every software engineering interview.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Can't discuss numbers but let's just say I had offers from several tier-1 public ($100BB+) tech companies, and Addepar beat on both cash and equity components. Offers are non-negotiable (basically they make a fair offer to start rather than playing the stupid game of coming 25% under and then playing chicken). They're also very understanding with giving you time (within reason) to make a descision (unlike 99% of tech companies who want an answer yesterday).
