    I worked at Agari full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Above all: the people at this company genuinely care about you as an individual.

    Managers are willing to go the extra mile and beyond to help you accomplish your career goals and balance work/life responsibilities. As an engineer, I was genuinely enthusiastic about writing code every day because I truly believed in the product, the company's mission, and executive leadership. I found engineering leadership to be extremely accessible, transparent, and willing to answer tough questions. Employees also have the unique opportunity to actively participate in conversations around the company's annual OKRs and long-term product roadmap - something that I valued especially because my job as an engineer is often focused on features for a single product. I had regular conversations with my manager about my career goals and have numerous opportunities to pursue new challenges that align with my goals. My coworkers were always easy to work with and I genuinely enjoyed spending time with them at informal social functions that the company hosts every couple of weeks.

    Cons

    None; I had an overwhelmingly positive experience

    Advice to Management

    Culture, especially in engineering, is collaborative, supportive, and positive and I can't wait to see what this company is capable of accomplishing in the next five years.

    Sales Development Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Agari (Foster City, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Round 1 - The talent recruiter reached out to me about the opportunity. We had a great conversation. She did a fantastic job describing the opportunity and company. A+!

    Round -2 with the hiring manager and that went as well as expected. Thoughtful questions and good answers. I was asked for a writing assignment. Which I did. It was disappointing to never get any feedback on my submission though.

    Round - 3 with the hiring managers boss. First up they missed out first scheduled interview. Alright stuff happens. Reschedule....
    Their late...
    Hasn’t read my resume or profile...
    Talks about his last success.
    Focuses on the short stints in my background
    Never asks me about the demonstrated successes in my background, multi year stints. They are clearly grabbing at things that jump out as he scans my resume. No order. The interview had already gone sideways.

    Good candidates like myself take the time to be prepared. I was. A interviewers responsibility is to do the research so you can have a meaningful conversation. When a executive doesn’t take that time it shows a lack of respect and understanding of their duties in the hiring process. They think they can wing it. That’s such a bummer as the lack of preparation made the interviewer fail to ask meaningful questions and struggle in answering some of mine. Good outcome was doubtful. I was disappointed as I knew I probably wouldn’t want to work for this person based on what I observed in this experience.

    I don’t doubt this is a good company. I do doubt leaders that don’t take the time to simply read a resume or LinkedIn profile before you interview candidates.

    Be empathetic you know what it’s like to interview. Its so disappointing for candidates when you don’t show up prepared. As now our conversation is compromised as you struggle to learn about the candidates while saving face in light that you just didn’t come prepared. It gives off the worst first impression Especially when your hiring experienced professionals.

    To be transparent, I wasn’t surprised to hear that I wouldn’t be moving on in the process after this interview. You failed me and you failed yourself.

    Best of luck to Agari.
