I worked at IbuildingsPros
Ibuildings is one of those companies that understands that if knowledgde is your core business, then that is what needs to be invested in. This means constant learning with workshops, challenging projects, sending people to conferences (and organizing their own). Even people that were senior at other companies and could no longer learn say they were able to learn new skills. I personally liked the fact that there were so many senior people around me. We constantly discussed new ways of doing things.Cons
The pressure is high; because ibuildings is known to clients there is little room for mistakes. Also because of its profile many people are headhunted which sometimes means losing coworkers. (but even the community of ex ibuildings people remains in close contact).Advice to ManagementAdvice
Continue to focus on knowledge growth. Perhaps create a more formal training program to attract medium level developers.Recommends

- Application Details
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days – interviewed at Ibuildings in July 2009.Interview Details
Initially I had a telephone interview with the CEO of Ibuildings UK, allowing them to gain insight into my working past and personal life. It was very informal and friendly. This was followed promptly by a test that I had to complete in my own time- the test is now famouse within Ibuildings. The test is designed to assess the skill of the applicant. It is short, relatively straight forward and should easily be completed in an evening. After the test was submitted, I was interviewed over the phone again by an existing Ibuildings employee and asked a lot of technical questions regarding PHP, OOP and general development practices. After this I was interviewed face to face by the development manager, who conducted an IQ test and discussed the working patterns of the company. Finally I was made an offer.Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
