    At every level of the company you are expected to step outside of your comfort zone and contribute. Great ideas are valued over impressive job titles and resumes. Tons of super intelligent and friendly people to help you flesh out your ideas without trying to take credit for them. Great office, great location, great benefits, but really a place where you can get excited about what you're doing and the people you're doing it with.


    As far as I know there are no cons working at Optimizely. Sometimes the chicken is a little dry. Seriously though, sometimes it may feel like everything is moving too fast and things are changing constantly, but that's what you sign up for.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose the core of what makes this company great, keep focusing on the human aspect of the company. As long as people feel appreciated they will be willing to go to battle for you.

    Difficult Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Optimizely.


    First interview with the hiring manager, Monica. She asks some tough questions about yourself and why you are interested in pursuing sales. Once you make it past Monica, you review with the SDR manager. The manager asks you a series of REALLY tough questions, ranging from a 30 second sales pitch to tough questions loved by the Paypal crew like 'what's something you believe in that few people agree with'. After the interview with the SDR manager, you move on to another round with more senior leaders in your office, and then a final in person interview.
