    I worked at foursquare full-time

    Pros

    Friendly and passionate co-workers. People really want to improve the company and product. Transparent, earnest, and open culture. Free lunch twice a week, free dinners all week.

    Cons

    Can be clique-y and arrogant in the engineering side, eg some CMU or Stanford or ex-googlers look down on everyone else. Enthusiasm for the company is misplaced since it's pretty clear that the product has hit a dead end. Drinking-oriented social culture.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Interview Details

    1. Chatted with the recruiter about my background.
    2. Had phone interview with a software engineer. After a few warm up questions, the interviewer gave me two coding questions in the shared text editor. They were both tree questions and both not hard, but I could have done better. The interviewer sounded uninterested and was not very responsive.
