Autonomy, room to grow, team and individual recognition. This organization sets high standards and expects the same of its employees. Come on board bringing your A game or go home!
It's not easy living in San Diego. Having lived in SD for 5+ years, you get used to the pacific beaches, breezes and bar/restaurant scene, as well as the multitude of parks, hiking trails, and other things to do. So unless you're making $80K+, be prepared to rent a room out of someone's home or share an apartment. The 'sun tax' is steep but yes, it's worth it.
Advice to Management
Develop a career path for employees. Keep the stock options coming!

- No OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at SmartDraw.com (San Diego, CA) in May 2014.
First was a phone interview with another Product Specialist that had a lot of strengths/weaknesses type questions. Second is an in person interview with the Education Coordinator and a computer test that they never give you the results from. Also there is an interview with the Product Specialist Manager. Third, they bring you in for an in person panel interview where the higher ups will grill you over asinine/irrelevant details of your resume and then inform the Product Specialist Manager that they don't think you will be a good fit. They also require you to give them your social security number and other personal information even if they don't offer you the job. Higher ups are Prima Donnas.
