    I have been working at Taphandles full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Great benefits: 12 days PTO + 4 days for sick leave, healthcare, dental, 401k, paid parental leave, and a one week "break" during the last week of December.
    - Excellent work/life balance!
    - Cool individuals who are all very passionate about their work and roles.
    - Office culture is engaging, birthday lunches monthly
    - Company wide meetings quarterly to keep everyone in the loop.
    - Daily beer-30 at the end of the day (optional)
    - Opportunity to hone skills as well as further ones knowledge in their area of expertise.
    - End of year bonus opportunity.
    - No corporate BS.

    Cons

    - Leadership is assigned to all individuals at some level. Everyone is expected to be independent, responsible, and proactive which some may find difficult if they always need to be told what to do (this can be a pro or con depending on the individual).
    - Working for a small company, expect to step up to the plate when needed, if you can't handle that stick with large companies.
    - Fast pace, if something needs to be done, it needs to be done now!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Keep up the Holiday party in the beginning of the year and the Whistler retreat in July. These optional, outside work events, are a great way for co-workers to bond and let off steam.
    - Research how you can help your employees grow into their roles and become experts in their desired fields.
    - Research growth strategies, Taphandles has tons of potential to go even further!
    - Encourage others, provide guidance, be the leader when needed.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Taphandles.

    Interview Details

    I heard about the job through a friend. Their HR department reached out to me and linked me to their job posting once it was active. Their initial application is to have applicants write what could be considered a joint cover letter/resume, which serves as a topical basis for the interviews. There was a phone interview which seemed to be more of a formality, making sure you're not completely inept., a 1:1 interview, then a panel interview. There was also a written argument test, really similar to the analytical writing assessment portion of the GMAT. The whole interview process was pretty light-hearted, the people I spoke to during my interviews seemed like they enjoyed working there.
