I have been working at Financial Engines full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Interview process is super fast!! Talked to recruiter over phone couple of times.. He quickly scheduled a phone screening with hiring manager and with the architect on the following day.. Called for an on-site in the following week!! Got the final offer in 2 days .. Negotiated on the same day and final offer letter on the next day.

Everything happened in less than 3 weeks (No exaggerations). The Recruiter (Ronny Greer) was super fast in going through the process. No old school email exchanges. Directly call and text ! Also, Have not met a recruiter before who knows technical stuff required for the position in such details (and not just the names ;) )

Company has a bunch of products which help people to retire with better financial position. To me it is important to work for a initiative to help people in some way through my work. Company has great past and promising roadmap ahead. I am really excited and eager to join :)

Cons

Cant find any at this point and hope I dont find any :)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Financial Engines full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The culture we used to have

    Cons

    New members are brought into executive management and mistreat company employees and values. If you didn't grow with the company what write do you have to treat people the way you do? FE is/was a good company built on real core beliefs that if you do not have, you shouldn't be allowed to join the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire Chung and only hire leaders people respect and that share company core values

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
