Transparency from the top down: The organization goes through great pains to be sure that they strategy and vision for the company are clearly communicated to the staff. Mature agile practitioners. Understanding of family and work-life balance. Host an annual event for the whole family as well as smaller social events.
Growing pains that most companies experience when moving beyond a couple hundred employees. Silos have been building up that are well defended and produce a detrimental impact on the overall user experience. An engineering organization that is becoming calcified around aging technology.

I applied online. The process took 5 days – interviewed at Silverpop in September 2014.
I applied for the position via LinkedIn and a few days later I received an email requesting times that would be good for a phone interview. The next week I had the phone interview. The guy I spoke to was very pleasant. It was more so him telling me about the position and asking me about my current job. At the end of the conversation, it was my understanding that either by the end of the week or the next week he or someone else would reach out to me with in person interview information. That Friday, I received an email letting me know that after completing other interviews they would be considering other candidates. I was shocked because of how my phone interview ended. I even double checked the notes that I took during my phone interview (which I always do), just to make sure that I wasn't mistaken about him mentioning scheduling an in person interview, but that's exactly what my notes said. And based on a previous review on here, it seems like I'm not the first person to think that they'd be getting an in person interview.
So, I replied to his email, thanking him for reaching out and letting him know that I guess I misunderstood our phone conversation regarding an in person interview. I actually sent a second email after that just because I was curious about what I can improve on or what made them decide to go with other candidates. He replied to neither of those emails, which was a bit frustrating, even a short and to the point reply would have sufficed. Silverpop seems like a great company to work for, but I guess this just wasn't the right place for me.
