    I have been working at Swype

    Pros

    Fantastic new text input technology
    Consistently strong growth
    Core team previously successful in this space
    Management treats us fairly - strong emphasis on work life balance
    Pioneer Square location great for transit
    Regular innovation meetings where we can suggest ideas and the ideas are often acted upon

    Cons

    Can't evolve processes fast enough to satisfy growth
    Noisy environment
    Benefits could be better
    Old Fremont location was better

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Help us catch up with the growth.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Swype in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    Received an email from the manager of team and scheduled an interview. Forgot to provide the location of the office. I went to the office and the manager totally forgot about the interview and was not even ready for it. Very inappropriate and stupid manager ever I've dealt with.
