There are many pros to working at Bamko. First and foremost, it served as a great career opportunity for me. I was thrown a ton of interesting projects and been given significant responsibility. The people are great and the work environment is friendly. Compensation seems to be at or above market although I really don't know the market that well. Overall, Bamko is a positive place to work and I feel like exciting times are ahead.
The downside to working at Bamko is that there are a few people, particularly in mid-level management, that are kind of debbie downers. They contradict a lot of the direction from upper management and don't embody the overall positive culture that you see throughout Bamko. This small group of people can really drag down the overall mojo of the office.
Advice to Management
Don't keep people around if they aren't embodying what Bamko stands for.

I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks – interviewed at Bamko.
After sending the resume, HR department called for usual phone interview for a pre-screen for an actual job interview which was standard and lasted about 15 minutes. In their office, I was given an application form and few questions to assess abilities related to basic math, logic and aptitude which took around half hour.
The actual interview was conducted by the hiring manager which was standard with a focus on knowing about my current job and skill sets. Next interview was with the director of operations who asked lots of questions relating to my current jobs, skill sets and how I would apply those skills in their company. Again, the interview process was stress free and encouraged two way flow of information. The interview ended with a note that department head from New York would take final interview. The final phone interview was scheduled late at night due to time differences. It went already (so I thought) as questions were more open ended.
Bamko is fast paced, energetic company which is growing. The employees all looked happy and the office has relaxed, startup feel. If you are willing to put up extra hours and take risks of doing things differently, this might be the place to work. It would be expected to answer calls/ email at odd hours due to geographical time difference.
- I do not remember the exact questions but they were designed to understand the depth of one’s skills. The interview set up was relaxed. Answer Question
