I have been working at Avangate full-time (More than a year)
- fun company culture - tons of transparency from management - coworkers are typically accessible and nice - amenable to work-from-home - benefits are great
- high-stress weeks are not unusual - "perks" aren't too abundant; none of the standard Silicon Valley perks arms race here - some trouble interacting with more far-flung teams in other areas of the world
Advice to Management
Manage the cultural differences between the Europe teams and American teams.

Getting an Interview
- No OfferNegative ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Avangate (Redwood City, CA) in April 2015.
Recruiter contacted me about the opportunity who convinced me to apply. The hiring manager initially refused to speak to me because I did not work at a well known tech company. Eventually the recruiter convinced the manager to speak with me, but it was clear that he did it as a favor, not because he thought I was a viable candidate. A couple of days later, the recruiter told me that the hiring manager thought I was the smartest candidate he spoke with, but still decided to pass because I did not work at a well known tech company. Very insulting and a major waste of my time.
