    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Dimensional Fund Advisors (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    Some things never change. I'd read the negative reviews on here prior to the interview, but was assured that things at Dimensional had changed and the culture was better. It is not. After several phone interviews and an all day in-person interview, I never heard from them again. I reached out a few times by phone/email to follow up, but they ignored me. I completely understand choosing not to continue with me further, but at least have the respect and professional courtesy to communicate with the candidates and inform them of the status. It is unprofessional to completely ignore someone who has invested many hours/days, and waste their time while they wait to see if an offer is forthcoming. If this is how they treat employees, I am glad I didn't end up working there. The other reviews of this company make complete sense now.
