    I have been working at Photon Infotech

    Pros

    I honed my skills to handle some of the fastest systems there is in Photon, that is why I am very grateful to them for giving me the chance. I had the chance to handle some iOS and android in here. The learning curve here is really what matters, it’s like a class every day, everybody is moving and asking questions and answering them at the same time, it can be fast in here, and that makes it more challenging to me. The fast paced workflow is like a rush for me, learning and working at the same time and knowing that you have the same goal with the person beside you are enough reasons to like working here.

    Fresher Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Photon Infotech in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my information to an ad that they had listed on my school's employment site and I didn't hear back for the position I applied to. However, they called me unexpectedly a few months later saying that they were interested in me for a new program. The interview process consisted of three video-chat interviews with engineers from across the company.

    The first interviewer asked some basic logic questions, like Fermi problems.

    The second interviewer asked more logic questions, and some more in-depth programming questions, including stuff about object-oriented programming.

    The third interviewer asked about my experience with programming, including my work style and approaches to learning.

    There were a few issues with the first few interviews (at one point, I hadn't heard from my contact in the company in over a week, after which he said that he 'forgot' and set up my third interview). However, the worst part was yet to come.

    Shortly after my third interview, my contact told me that I had great feedback, and that I would get an offer by the end of the week.

    The next *month* was filled with broken promises about deadlines for offers, with excuses ranging from not being able to contact certain people because they were in a different timezone (apparently no one in this company has used email) to an absurdly Kafkaesque approval process. I admit that I should have seen the signs at this point; however, my contact constantly gave me promises for an offer that he would break with astounding sycophancy, so I kept up hope.

    Finally, almost exactly a month after I was promised my first offer, I was informed that the company had made some decisions that meant that my offer would be contingent on some changes that I could not accept. At no point during this entire two month process was I informed that this was a possibility.

    After almost an entire month of promising me an offer, they completely changed the terms of the offer to the extent that I could not accept it.
