I have been working at Cobaltix full-time (More than a year)
Great culture - and an incredibly comfortable environment. We are kept challenged with learning and growth opportunities. Management listens and takes action appropriately. People are not micro-managed. I personally feel very supported and set up for success here.
The cons here are above and beyond better than other companies I have worked for. Work is work - there will be cons. The goal is to minimize the severity of the cons, and I feel Cobaltix does a good job at this.
Advice to Management
I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Cobaltix (San Francisco, CA).
Responded to a Craigslist ad; was contacted for a phone screen and then was invited to come in for an interview. Upon arrival I met initially with the person who conducted my phone screen to review what I should expect that day and reviewed the interview process with me. This was followed by a meeting with the CEO. The CEO proceeded to conduct what I can only describe as a highly subjective test which was divided into two parts - "technical" and "cognitive/personality". The technical portion was all over the place in terms of specific methods, technologies, and skills. The CEO feverishly took notes throughout both parts. In the second, "Cognitive/Personality" test the interviewer seemed to focus more on how you might articulate your answer to unusual questions such as "While driving on a crowded freeway, would you notice a clown in an adjacent car?" or "Explain how red light camera systems work?". Again his scoring process seems to focus more on your logic, body language, articulation, and overall approach in responding to the question rather than whether or not you convey an accurate answer.
Typical - nothing negative or positive to say about it. I accepted the offer within 24 hours.
