    Pros

    Well funded (semi-public agency) so company has the time and resources to do things right. Recently implemented new system based on .NET stack and now building it out. Lots of enhancements but also opportunity to build new components. Rarely go into crunch mode but instead work load is challenging but doable.

    Cons

    You will have to learn some of their business which is based on sophisticated actuarial analysis of lots of job related data - not the most common application around or easy to explain to your friends. Also you will spend some time doing what would be called maintenance programming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide some longer term career development paths within the company when someone signs on so they at least know where they might be heading.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at WCIRB in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was presented for the position by an external recruiter for a contract-to-hire position. The entire process took a few weeks. After an initial phone screening with HR, I had an in-person interview with my would-be manager, and leads from QA and engineering. I was brought back a week later to interview with the CIO and CCO. It was nice to meet with the various teams with whom I'd be working and I felt the first interview went very well, but I had the feeling that the CIO and CCO were the ones who actually made the hiring decision.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions from the team covered my experience and the standard behavioral questions (e.g.: discuss a situation where you were met with X obstacle and how you resolved it.)   Answer Question
