The interview process was straightforward. I had a positive experience because my recruiter Madeline Gannon kept me up to date with communication and answered all my questions from start to finish! Madeline also provided me with the benefits the company offered which was really helpful.

Technical Account Manager

Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Benefitfocus

Interview

I was approached by the company to apply and wasn't actually looking to leave my job at the time. The interview process was chaotic and lengthy. I had multiple rounds of interviews with separate interviews with multiple people each round. They were scheduled with very short notice and often changed the times with even less notice. I was able to accommodate the interviews and the last minute schedule changes, but it was chaotic and unorganized. Every time I was told that was the last set of interviews, there was another 2-3 more I had to go through. I never actually met with the senior executives I was supporting.

Good, although sometimes I was caught in challenging environments because that’s what happens when you have to leave a false review on this app just to unlock another year of free usage.

The interview was overall nice. The interviewer kept a friendly environment. Questions felt like they were being read off of a checklist but it still felt like a casual conversation.

It was smooth.First part, Recruiter was friendly and asked me about my background. It went smooth and I was given an interview date within couple days. Second part, two rounds first round with senior engineers asked me about my background and projects I was working on and my experience that lasted about 45 minutes. Second part technical round also went good but was unable to solved the problem in time but explained how problem can be solved. Overall, it went really good. Found out the result after 2 weeks.

I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Benefitfocus (Charleston, SC)

Interview

Applied on career site and recruiter reached out. The rest of the process was unprofessional and inconsiderate. Recruiter spent most of the time speaking to how amazing the culture is which was great, though she blatantly lied the rest of the conversation. Said she would schedule the next steps with the hiring manager, would send over in writing the interview process and who is in it, and that my salary request was in range when it wasn't. Why lie?
