    Pros

    Great opportunities to shine in a supportive environment. Co-workers were friendly and ready to pitch in where needed and when needed. Management was great. Salary was average but benefits were awesome.

    Cons

    Sometimes the good old boy network prevailed over the right thing to do. One supervisor in particular seemed to take credit for another employee's creativity and work without question merely because she had been there longer. So, I guess there was a small dose of favoritism going on.

    Advice to Management

    Actually talk to your lower level employees and don't just assume that what their first-line supervisor is saying is true. Occasionally supervisors are threatened by new employee's abilities and worry about their own jobs.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Berkshire Hathaway (San Francisco, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Meet with hiring manager, developer team, business analyst team, Chief Information Officer. The developer team asked me some technical questions and had me set up a mock project in 15 minutes. After the mock project I met with a business analyst who asked me about my collaborative experience. The position required collaborative/team experience. I was told I lacked collaborative/team experience based on my answers to their questions.
