    Pros

    Smart people, cool technology, still a relatively young company with an ability to influence future growth; Really cool office in a historic building right on the downtown mall. Recent senior/exec hires have been good, as they balance out a headstrong CEO.

    Cons

    had been some turnover as the company changed its strategy, but that largely seem to be over; sometimes the technology is too cool for the company's customers, who are a bit old-fashioned.

    Advice to Management

    change is inevitable, but sharing is caring; better to be forthright about what you are doing as employees are smarter than you give them credit for. CEO can be "cagey" at times, but he has gotten better.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Silverchair (Charlottesville, VA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was quick, with a phone screening and two in-person interviews all happening within the week. At the same time, the process was clearly outlined and communication was prompt and responsive with the hiring manager. The tone was enthusiastic - especially in person, where I was left with the impression that Silverchair has a really upbeat culture. Interview style was a little more informal than I'm used to, more conversational & less rigid. Overall, a fantastic interview experience.
