    -Collaborative open work environment, no issues raising ideas / solutions to leadership, peers -Great product with buy-in from almost everyone at the company -Excellent leadership throughout - open door policy is totally followed -Opportunities to work on exciting projects are based on merit not seniority -Work/Life balance is respected totally


    It is difficult for employees to understand what their path is upwards - which is typical for flatter orgs. Best for management to communicate this early & often for talented + interested employees.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Smartsheet (Bellevue, WA) in May 2015.


    I probably had the longest interview process in the company. They saw me as a good culture fit, but lacked the technical skills for the first two roles, and finally landed the 3rd role. Interview with recruiter, hiring manager, co-founder, then 6 hour interview "loop". Pivoted to 2nd Role and met with hiring manager, then presentation, then 4 hour "loop". Finally for the 3rd position I met with 2 team members.

    • Putting together a solution presentation for a make-believe company without a lot of details to go by. Then presenting my solution to members of that team and managers.   Answer Question
