    I worked at EQECAT full-time (more than 3 years)


    -smart, committed, friendly people
    -interesting work
    -small enough for your voice to be "heard"


    -bureaucracies related to the parent organization
    -groups are somewhat in "silos," so cooperation is less fruitful than it could be

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    your core competency is in the models, not the platform! figure out how to capitalize on technical prominence even if it means abandoning other products.

    Product Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at EQECAT in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    Initial communications were through people I knew, helping me find a fit for my capabilities.
    Interview structure was somewhat informal - the process seemed to be customized for every applicant. My own process started with a phone conversation (not really interview) with the CEO, then a phone interview with the director of Product Management, then a formal presentation of my prior work to the whole management team, then an in-person interview with the product management director, and finally a meet-and-greet with the rest of the product management team.

    One-on-one negotiation directly with the group director. Salary ranges are enforced by the parent company. Contingent compensation was not up for negotiation. Limitations on vacation time according to salary range.
