    I worked at BabyCenter as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at BabyCenter.

    Interview Details

    The process was via a recruiting firm. They introduced me to the company and managed the interview process from beginning to offer to start.

    The interview process was very smooth and professional. From the first person I spoke with to the members of BabyCenter the questions were focused on what I would bring to the job. They knew what they needed and the questions were based on this. No silly if you had your head stuck in a jar or write a directive on a white board tests.

    Only issue and this was a major one, the recruiting firm appeared to be new to BabyCenter's hiring process creating an unacceptable delay from the date the offer was made to the date I started.
