    Dot-com vibe with a recent emphasis on renewal

    I worked at Equilar


    I was admittedly dubious after reading some of the other reviews here. Having joined after those reviews were written, I believe the company is on a path toward reinvention and renewal in products and perhaps some of the day-to-day culture. Ultimately, as a small/medium private entity, there's a little bit of everything on a small/medium scale: rec area and games for the younger employees, kitchen area, etc. The infrastructure is fairly modern. The organization offers slightly above-average benefits, health, transportation, 401k. The environment is supportive and individuals recognized for their work. The CEO seemed like a genuine, earnest person, highly passionate about the company and also highly fastidious, which might feel intrustive for some individuals, though for analytical problem-solvers, the engagement and feedback could be welcome.


    Though benefits are slightly above-average, base pay may be somewhat below by Silicon Valley standards. Company operates in a niche industry, executive compensation, so the over-arching mission may have a limited appeal for some.

    Advice to Management

    The path you've chosen for renewal seems positive.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Equilar in March 2015.


    Met a recruiter at the campus career fair and submitted my resume through the university career listing website and the company website. Was contacted a couple of weeks later for an on-campus interview. Received an invitation for a second round interview.
