I have been working at FireHost full-time (More than 3 years)RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEORecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
FireHost is more of an adventure every day than it is a job - I don't stop at 5:00, I keep working because I'm excited to contribute and I see how my contribution creates progress for the business. Compensation is competitive with the market, benefits are upgraded every year. Leadership consistently makes the right choices to continue improving value for the customers, and compensation for the employees. The people that I work with on a daily basis are hungry and competent - this is not like working with the living dead - people are excited to be here. I think things are more fair here than at other companies that I have been a part of - there's no boys club or executive clique, promotion is based on talent, effort and results - not seniority or who you know. I have a lot of faith that the senior management is honest and puts thought and care when considering how the company treats employees. I love to come to work everyday. The amount of time and effort Senior management expends communicating to the employees is unmatched - company goals are very clear, how we are attaining those goals is clear, and mistakes get fixed.
You have to manage your own work-life balance, its an exciting place to work and its a common mistake to over commit your own time - but that is not demanded. Things change, a lot, and that can be uncomfortable - even scary - if you can't handle a lot of change, it can be a stressful place to work. Most of the big issues I saw with the business 9 months ago from an employee's perspective have been fixed or I can see being fixed in the future. No workplace is perfect - but I believe FireHost will always continue to improve. You have to be brave to succeed here.
Advice to Management
Company wide incentives - some of our biggest contributors don't see a consistent reward for their extra effort.
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- No OfferNeutral ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took 5 days – interviewed at FireHost (Richardson, TX).
A meeting with two managers in a discussion format. They went through my resume and asked about various items on it. I had plenty of opportunities to ask them about the position an the company. After the interview I contacted their HR recruiter for feedback. I never heard back from her. I normally work with through recruiting firms who offer feedback after the interview. When I have interviewed directly with companies in the past I usually get a "we've got your resume on file and we'll let you know..." which is code for no thanks. But at least you hear some from them. I was on the fence after I read some employee reviews so maybe it's a good thing I never heard back from them.
