I have been working at Simply MeasuredPros
There are tons of pros. Broadly stated, social and data are two of the hottest industries on their own, so it's energizing to come to work at a place that brings the two together. Add the fact that the product is truly differentiated in a crowded market and it's hard not to be excited about the things that are ahead.
The office, work environment and employees are all phenomenal. Employees have autonomy and the successful ones can chart their own growth path within the organization.
The management team shows strength by making hard decisions before they need to. This kind of foresight is often lacking at a startup/growth company and it's something that shouldn't be taken for granted!Cons
Like any company there are some pains associated with growth, including executive turnover and lots of changes.Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Application Details
I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week – interviewed at Simply Measured.Interview Details
30 minute phone screen with recruiter/HR department. One hour in-person interview with VP of engineering. 60 minute phone technical screen with two developer types.
Odd in the order (talking with VP before devs), but that might have just been a scheduling thing. The interviews all went well, and any of the members of the process has complete veto power.
The tech screen had fair questions that were not "gotchas" and I thought they were fairly easy and straightforward to answer. Something got lost in translation because I received enthusiastic thumbs up from the other two parties. I was confused because I thought I aced it and they somehow did not.
After talking with another developer I know that interviewed there, he had the opposite process with an in-person with the devs and said they were continually consulting a book with the questions and answers and had some rigidity about answering what's in the book rather than understanding the thought process behind the answer (& perhaps even the question).
I don't know the particular capabilities of the guys I spoke with, but I do know the questions were fair and in areas I am quite versed in and answered easily so failing the tech screen was a surprise.Interview Questions
