    Pros

    Slide is the hottest company in tech. Slide consists of strictly A-list talent in business and engineering. Slide has the highest ratio of users to employees of any tech company in the world (over 170 million users, approx. 80 employees). Given the axiomatic formula for job kick-assness: (fun of workplace) x (fun of product) x (valuation of company), working at Slide is the most kick-ass job in the universe.

    Cons

    Slide employees must reconcile for outsiders how products that are ostensibly silly and just-for-fun can in actuality be seriously valuable. There is a high barrier-to-entry for novice Ping Pong and Mario Kart Wii players.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing: recognizing and rewarding talent and hard work.

    Product Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Slide Inc in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter was very excited about talking with me. The people I interviewed with, not so much. Perhaps it was just the department I interviewed for, but they all shared this "I know all about everything" attitude. One of the interview questions I'd get asked repeatedly was suggestions on how to improve their product, to which I would provide some...and their responses were very negative and defensive. "oh, you may think that way, but most people don't. They wouldn't like that." Not welcoming at all.

    But, the culture is very laid back. My friend took me around the building, and it's like a typical start-up environment.

Ever been SuperPoked or had someone write on your Funwall? Thank this company, which has slid its way into the collective consciousness of the Internet generation.

Although the company provides image hosting, personalization tools, and social networking opportunities through Slide.com, the company's popularity stems from users of third party sites such as MySpace, Facebook, and Bebo, who use Slide applications to insert slide shows, pictures, or video clips...
