    Pros

    They do an excellent job of hiring accomplished bookworms. Great place to learn from if you're an up and coming software developer. They're excellent to use as a stepping stone to a more rewarding future else where in the tech industry.

    Cons

    High turn over rate (~50%+). Project management is non-existent. Lack an understanding of how to control clientele’s wishful thinking. You have to sell your idea to the ceo like it was his idea. Knowledge sharing across teams and personnel were not encouraged. If you like silence when working, then this is the place to be, it felt like working in a library.

    Advice to Management

    Stop whispering sweet nothing's into each other's ears.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Forio (Pittsburgh, PA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    I applied to this job on our university's career board. A few days later, their HR called and asked some general questions about my resume. She specifically asked about my experience with JavaScript.

    A few days later I got a technical phone interview. The interviewer was one of their senior web developers, who was really nice. We used an online coding board (I forgot the name) for the interview. At first I was asked to write some basic CSS (for example to let a div align horizontally on the page). Then I was asked to solve an algorithm question in JavaScript.

    Interview Questions

    • I was expecting some JavaScript questions related to DOM manipulation, instead It was a pure algorithm and data structure question: Revert words in a sentence. For example given "hello world", you need to return "world hello". I was so nervous that at I first I reverted the entire sentence character by character. I was able to correct it in the end but obviously he wasn't very satisfied as it eventually took me a long time to solve this problem.   Answer Question
