I have been working at Fitbit full-time (more than an year)Pros
It's a fairly large startup, but each position is given significant influence to the success of the company. It has a good, recognizable name in the Tech industry. It is easy to reach senior management from entry level / junior positions and they respond to your concerns. There's not much of a hierarchy feel in Fitbit, which I like. The perks are nice and working with people who are genuinely passionate about building innovative products is fulfilling in itself.Cons
Because it's growing so fast, I can see people inundated with work that they can't handle by themselves. Some teams work long hours and receive the least amount of help in terms of growing their actual team. There needs to be better communication across teams from production to distribution and the same problems that occur during this process needs to be addressed and fixed.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Communication across all fronts needs to be more streamlined and transparent. Keep releasing a multitude of products but have an honest, sincere expectation of launch dates and expect delays.RecommendsNo opinion of CEO
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- Interview Details
It started with a Phone interview with hiring manager. That went ofk eventhough the recruiting team didn't schedule the time properly...miscommunication.
They then invited me in for an onsite interview and I made plans to stay there from 10-4 as they stated. During the interview, the first 2 people seemed very nice, however, to note...I believe the interviewing was very much specific to how things function at Fitbit. That being said, since I have been working at different companies I have had to learn many things from the ground up--every place is indeed different and QA styles are not generally not that incredibly difficult to pick up. I did think I was a good fit and I absolutely know I can do the position well, however, I believe the focus was a bit Fitbit specific. I then met with the next 2 people...nice people good conversation. Then there was a break for lunch around 1pm.
Right after the second interviewer when I was assuming I was going to lunch around 1pm, then the recruiter coordinator came in and said to go home. I then got no further feedback from HR. This is completely unprofessional and the amount of effort on my part that was put in to be dismissed in a very unappreciative, disrepectful fashion really makes me think quite differently about the company itself. The onsite interview style combined with how HR functions at Fitbit, really puts a damper on how the appears to the public, especially if this continues with other candidates.
If this is what is normal for the culture in how they treat people...I would beware! Don't do it! Many other competitors....don't get roped into this one! Surely they will tank someday...product is not that revolutionary.Interview Questions
