Fun-loving employees, great culture. Employees work from home on Tuesday and Thursday - flexibility to manage their own time, without spending it on commuting to work - especially for those who live far from work. A lot of opportunity to learn - especially for a new graduate.
High turn-over rate - like most other software companies in silicon valley
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- No OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Lightning Bolt Solutions (Burlingame, CA) in August 2015.
My experience supports everything else the others described about the interview process. After a quiz I submitted on paper and a phone interview with the manager, I was invited to an on-site interview. The interviews consisted of 1) one with application consultants, 2) one with senior application consultants, 3) one with a manager who gave me more logic/math puzzles to solve, and 4) lunch. Each process lasted about an hour or longer. I was surprised at how apathetic and indifferent everyone seemed to be during interviews and at lunch. For instance, during lunch with a big group of people, some of whom I didn't get to speak with, they just carried conversations amongst themselves and acted like I wasn't there. No one made introductions until we were almost done with lunch. They seemed like nice people, but the interview process seemed like a joke to the employees. A majority of them looked bored and clearly did not want to be there. For some of the allotted time, consultants/senior consultants who interviewed me were killing/wasting time by asking me ridiculous questions. (Exp: they asked me to sell a marker as if I was a salesman, although skillset as a salesman is not relevant to the job. Then one of the senior consultants asked me to list all of the places I lived in the past..). It's fine if you're in on the joke, but as an outsider interviewing for a position, this was really unprofessional. Then the manager had me create a math equation out of a logic statement (Exp: there are five doctors who need to work on day A, but if they do, they cannot work the next day, or something like that), and that was the end of the day. One of my concerns about this company was room for advancement, so when I asked about that to the manager and the senior consultants, they didn't give me a solid answer. All in all, I thought the interview process could've been a lot shorter. And people more engaged.
