    Pros

    I worked in the sales at FirstRain and like any nimble organization, we pull resources where we can to work done. That being said, you get transparency throughout the organization. If you know how to make a start-up environment work for you, this is a great place to be.

    Cons

    None at this time, other than no more free lunches :-(

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the leadership and openness.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at FirstRain.

    Interview

    Applied through LinkedIn. In about two weeks got an email from a recruiter offering to schedule a phone call. The phone call was on time, however, due to a very heavy accent of the recruiter, it was difficult to understand her questions. The questions were very generic. She promised to get in touch with me in a week, but in spite of my efforts to follow up no one got back to me.
