    Pros

    Company offers good benefits, education/certification reimbursement, provides a model corporate culture, and they do tend to prefer promoting from within.

    Cons

    On the down-side, the compensation for the position is not commensurate with the level of knowledge and skills demanded; although Paid Time Off is a benefit, it's sometimes impossible to get time off approved.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to management would be to hire more for the peaks in work volume, and not for the valleys, as they do currently.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at American Century (Mountain View, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Recruiter from staffing agency reached out on LinkedIn. I spoke with her and the Hiring Manager over the phone. There were two distinct rounds of interviews: 1) on-site with most of the team I'd be working with + another phone interview a few days later 2) meeting with boss's boss and newly hired team development lead. Found out shortly after the second round that I had gotten the job.

    Negotiation

    Discussed expectations with recruiter (from staffing firm) and later with hiring manager.
