    I have been working at SDL full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great people, management that is very employee focused, executive transparency, solid vision, room to grow for employees, great leadership. The office culture is extremely positive with a team focused mentality, and BBQ's, and snacks and office meetings.

    Cons

    I have not yet seen any as of yet

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the great work, the shift the company has gone through is working, the leadership team that's in place is one of the best I have ever seen!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 months - interviewed at SDL in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    It was very long process....started in November with start date in April. Not much communication, but found out after hiring process that executive was fired in December and office was starting over. Interview panel was made up of people who had no sales background and really just focused on my fit in culture, but not my fit for success.

    Interview Questions
    • Team was not skilled at interviewing sales people so there were no questions that were not expected. Nothing that I would consider "difficult".   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation.
    Accepted Offer
