    I have been working at Minted full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    * Numerous personal growth opportunities. Minted is still small enough that you can find ways to reinvent yourself
    * Strong engineering leadership, including several people that I call mentors
    * Large enough to have some best practices in place (always a WIP)
    * Interesting software engineering challenges
    * Transparent senior management
    * Strong company growth
    * Results oriented culture (i.e. no 9-5)
    * Newly remodeled office

    Cons

    * Work-life culture has historically been unbalanced, however that has drastically improved in the last few years
    * Office has a busy vibe, it can be difficult to find conference rooms for meetings and/or quiet places to focus.
    * Interviewing and recruiting process has room for improvement
    * Compensation might be lower than industry averages, which makes recruiting for specific roles more challenging

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * More diverse 401K investment options
    * Performance / peer review and goals setting process has room for improvement

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Minted.

    Interview Details

    Submitted online and through a friend. Got a call quickly for an on-site interview with the hiring manager. Great communication with hiring team. Meaty interview, if only we covered so many topics. Felt like the hiring manager was very engaged. Was thus surprised to get a terse "thanks but no thanks" note a few days later. So it goes.

    Interview Questions
    • There were so many - and the interviewer took COPIOUS notes. Many were more "blue sky" type questions, so perhaps he was trying to see how I think. That said, I wasn't provided much context, so who knows is the answers were "good". Definitely an interesting interview with lots of open-ended questions. More traditional interviews would not go into tis detail right away. I took it as a good sign. Maybe it was just a free consulting session. ;-)   Answer Question
