    Pros

    Birchbox is a great environment to challenge yourself in every day. The company moves at a frantic pace and has worked hard to maintain a startup culture even as they have grown. Colleagues are all very ambitious, and friendly. Benefits are great - unlimited leave, weekly breakfasts, regular events, and more. A recommended workplace for someone wanting a startup vibe without the risk of an early stage startup.

    Cons

    Meeting overload is felt across all departments with not just a high volume of coordination meetings but also very high attendance at those meetings. It's not uncommon to be in a room with 20 other people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on internal efficiencies, get the meetings under control.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Birchbox in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was contacted over a month later asking to schedule a phone interview. The interviewer was very friendly and helpful throughout the entire interview. He spent a decent amount of time asking about my resume and what I was looking for in an internship. There was one coding question that dealt with modifying data structures.
