I worked at Atlassian full-time (more than 5 years)Pros
Atlassian is a special, one of a kind company. The overall company culture is phenomenal. It's a great place to start your career and develop your skills.Cons
Historically the company has done a poor job promoting from within. As the company has grown, there's more bureaucracy and some people that aren't fun to work with.RecommendsApproves of CEO

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Atlassian.Interview Details
After submitting an application online I received an immediate automated confirmation email. It was friendly and lighthearted, which I enjoyed.
Exactly two weeks later I received an email from a member of Atlassian's recruiting team asking to schedule a phone interview. I responded same-day. I was happy to receive an email confirmation from a scheduling coordinator the next day with my phone interview's date and time. I asked the scheduling coordinator how to best prepare for the interview, and I was pleasantly surprised when she responded to me same-day with some helpful information.
The recruiter called me at precisely our appointed time and was both warm and professional. I felt she was focused, experienced, and really understood the role and her organization.
The day after my call with the recruiter I received a follow-up email from her congratulating me on making it to the next step of the process. She asked to schedule me for a call with the hiring manager. I responded the next day with my availability, and the day following I received an email confirmation from a scheduling coordinator with my next phone interview's date and time.
The hiring manager called me at our appointed time, and she impressed me with her knowledge, friendliness, and professionalism. She had a clear sense of what she was looking for in a candidate, and she asked me thoughtful questions about my background and interests. It was altogether an enjoyable conversation. The hiring manager shared with me what the next steps in the process would be, and gave me a rough time-frames for each stage in her decision.
Three days after my phone call with the hiring manager I received a very polite email from the recruiter thanking me for my efforts and interest and informing me that they wouldn't be moving forward with me at that time. Following on that note I received a separate email asking me to provide Atlassian with my feedback on the interview experience and offering me the opportunity to enter into a drawing for a free gift.
All told, I found the interviewing experience at Atlassian to be pleasant and efficient. Their talent team operates like a well-oiled machine and delivers well on Atlassian’s brand promise. I felt like my time was respected by Atlassian’s team members, and all throughout the process I felt valued.Interview Questions
