I have been working at D2L full-time (more than an year)Pros
Solid work-life balance, collaborative environment, visionary leadership, competitive pay. I have been given the opportunity to grow within D2L and have had great experiences with management.Cons
Experience for remote employees, vertical movement within sales/marketing organization, product delivery. D2L is in a time of transition as a company.Advice to ManagementAdvice
D2L can be a very motivating place to work and the people within the company really believe in the mission of 'Transforming Teaching and Learning". One bit of advise would be to not try to be all things to all people, but improve the experience of our core solution to better compete in the market. Look to build the D2L brand and empower your remote employees to extend that brand.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at D2L.Interview Details
I applied through the D2L website and received an email requesting a phone interview about 2 weeks later. The phone interview consisted of a woman from HR asking a series of pre-defined questions. As I am a recent graduate, I did not have prior experience in a programming position. I had expected her to ask about my education as well as work experience. The research I did in my masters was incredibly relevant to the work done at D2L, and I wanted to talk about that but never had the opportunity.
After asking the basic questions about my skills, strengths, weaknesses etc. I was asked a series of technical questions. The HR lady asking them didn't have much knowledge about the topics and was unable to provide clarification when I asked. I felt the questions were all pretty simple and straightforward. Most were already mentioned here on Glassdoor and none were surprising.
I was quite sure that I answered all of the technical questions well, however was not asked in for a second interview. They chose to pursue candidates with more experience. It seems that D2L puts a lot of priority on professional experience. I had expected to at least be invited in to meet the hiring manager in person.Interview Questions
