    I have been working at Gogo full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - The company is growing and I've learnt a lot of things since coming here.
    - The pay is good and benefit package is great. I like the flexibility e.g. hours, working remote and PTO etc.
    - I work in a great team and feel like its a family vs. dealing with work colleagues
    - I've had great opportunities to progress, had a promotion and had easy access to training when I've asked

    Cons

    - The environment can be fast paced which is good - but sometimes moves too fast. This can sometimes lead to confusion and communication breakdowns

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue with the improvements I've seen over the last few years. The company is moving in the right direction

    Software Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Gogo.

    Interview Details

    The first step was a phone screen with a high-level manager, mostly a technical screen. The next step was in-person interviews, a series of 45-minute interviews with a series of senior engineers and then the manager. The technical interviews were highly technical and deep-diving. I appreciated it as I felt it was aimed at getting an honest assessment of my abilities and seeing if I was a good match for the team.

    Interview Questions
    • Lots of technical questions about data modeling, database design and implementation, and best practices for software architecture. Also some behavioral/personality questions about skills, past projects, etc.   Answer Question
