I worked at BabyCenter as a contractor (more than a year)Doesn't RecommendPositive OutlookNo opinion of CEODoesn't RecommendPositive OutlookNo opinion of CEO
BabyCenter is an interesting company offering a unique product. Strong work life balance. Each department is made up of experienced people and they are focused on updating and researching technology stacks.
Too many senior level people. Very few junior level staff. On-boarding could have been better. Needs to take some risks and move into new technologies, hardware based in particular.
Advice to Management
Spend more time working with new hires to integrate then into the teams. Focus on finding good people not using recruiting firms. Streamline the hiring process, a new hire should not have to wait up to 2 months to start the position they have been offered.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at BabyCenter (San Francisco, CA) in March 2015.
*** They offered me the position, and 4 hours later called back to rescind the offer. ***
*** I warn all applicants about this company. I find them horribly unethical & their credibility is completely shot with me, and should be with you as well. ***
Phone screening, then in-person 2 1/2 hour interview on site. On site interview was with 4 people; 2 people doing the position, 1 immediate manager, and 1 Director of the department.
The first 2 people asked me questions regarding technical parts of the job; html coding, troubleshooting, and SQL statements, and how I would code an html e-mail from scratch.
