    Pros

    So many. Flexible hours, great coffee (options++), billiards, table tennis, the list goes on.
    The real pro to working at this company is the opportunity to innovate using the latest technologies and best practices combined with a solid continuous integration pipeline on projects that will better-address the existing needs of various departments as well as tools that are in-development that will provide other employees with a game-changing utility.

    Cons

    Yes, the company is experiencing growing pains right now and relationships between departments here and there may be strained, however the current change in process combined with the additional tools being built are going to pave the way for some very great things to happen soon.

    Advice to Management

    "Bad managers tell employees what to do, good managers explain why they need to do it, but great managers involve people in decision making and improvement." Respecting your employees and having faith in their ability goes a long way. This applies across departments as well.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Volusion (Austin, TX) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email setting up a phone call. The phone call focused mostly on reasons for looking for a job, past experience, new job expectations, etc. It seemed more like fact-finding than an interview. I appreciate a company taking time to make sure everyone is on the same page before scheduling a proper interview.

    They set up time to come interview in person. It was a pretty standard interview, lots of open ended behavioral questions. Many seemed to focus on dealing with presumed conflict between stakeholders. That is not out of the ordinary, but when several questions dance around the idea of confrontation, along with the launch of a new product, my excitement about Volusion was thoroughly tempered. I'm not afraid of conflict, but I also didn't like the vibe that I might be wearing a "Kick Me" sign all day.
