    Pros

    I worked for Phil, Frank & Harold. Great bosses. Pretty good salary scale. I learned a lot on this job over an 9 year stint.

    Cons

    For such an extremely fast-growing, high tech startup, Vanquish was critically underfunded. They always managed to meet their R&D goals, but the lack of marketing money was partially offset by winning top awards for their novel antispam products. But it hindered a company that should have been acquiring talent and assimilating competitors.

    Advice to Management

    If you have not already sold out to Google, at least market the sender bond patent. It is your biggest asset and cannot be properly exploited by a smaller company.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Vanquish Labs (Marlborough, MA).

    Interview

    3 rounds of interviews over 7 days, as the company narrowed the field for 2 candidates from an initial job-fair / presentation to 16 applicants. At the time, I was applying as web developer, which was a junior engineering position. I gradually worked my way up to programmer and then software engineer reporting to Harold Weiss, the Senior Software Engineer and VP (he was co-founder and director)

    Interview Questions

    • No quirky questions or surprises arose during my interviews. But the founders wanted me to describe my portfolio in detail and demonstrate my preferred tools and techniques.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate my original salary (8 years ago), but I have been pretty shrewd in negotiating at every review, promotion, and any time that I am happen to meet with all 3 founders at one time.
