Application

I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Zocdoc (New York, NY) in February 2012.

Did a number of interviews (~8) in phone with HR and in person - spoke with people from all functions in their NY office. Enjoyed good discussion on how the company is changing the face of healthcare.

  • What is the biggest threat to ZocDoc's success?   1 Answer

Reasons for Declining

Great company - strong management team, awesome location, and good people. However, salary was too low, and their current estimated valuation is too high, reducing the upside potential. I didn't feel the options they offered compensated came close to meeting the differential since the terms were unfavorable and value was too low.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Zocdoc (New York, NY) in December 2011.

    Interview

    I contacted the ZocDoc's CEO through a common acquaintance and immediately got access to him for consideration on a couple of roles. Was fairly informal over the phone as we discussed several potential options that met the company's needs, and I was then asked to speak with HR a day or two later. HR interview was mostly around fit and culture, which led to an in-person session including the CEO, Operations, Sales, and IT about one week afterwards. I really enjoyed the interviews, which felt more like discussions on strategy and tactics; clearly the ZocDoc team is very smart and highly focused on building a new model and culture for healthcare service companies.

    I was given a few days to make a valuation pitch for another company with a similar business model but different industry. It was an open ended assignment, but I suspect it was primarily to see how well I think, communicate, and remain professional through a time crunched process. I was told several times in the process that CEO values intelligence and capability more than raw experience.

    A few days later, came back in person for another round of interviews, which resulted in an offer.

    Reasons for Declining

    ZocDoc is an exceptional company with a very forward thinking management team. Their offer would have been very fair for a fresh top-tier MBA graduate (I was a few years out). Much of the compensation upside is likely based on options, future option grants, vesting cycle, and valuation increase. Being a private company, this latter information is not easy to discern, but I do believe the company is headed for strong growth.

    Nonetheless, declining the offer was not an easy choice, but one I made for personal and financial reasons given my unique opportunity costs.
