    I have been working at Red Herring full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Annual travel to Amsterdam, Hong Kong, LA was a perk. Get exposed to many innovative companies and their technologies. Build great contacts.

    Cons

    Leadership terribly ineffective and ranges on the socieopathic. Pay usually late, sometimes by months. Leadership does not listen to employee feedback. Company culture not supportive.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to feedback. Be open about employee approaches to solving challenges. Be more realistic about deadlines and listen to employee suggestions about how to get them done.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Red Herring.

    Interview

    Applied through school's website, got their email invitation for an interview, it was a phone interview, and the interviewer seemed to be less prepared than I was. When asked about the structure of the company, the person said everyone does a little bit of everything, which got me concerned about their specialization and efficiency. A second round interview came weeks later. It was a department head, a very nice person, and we had an enjoyable conversation. But from our conversation, I sensed this company is kind of struggling (and my later research proved this point).
