    I have been working at GoPro full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    GoPro sets the standard for work/life balance. I have taken 30+ days off this year and it hasnt been an issue. You work hard when needed and youre allowed to enjoy life. Workplace culture is a very relaxed and everyone is open to collaboration.

    Cons

    Being too chill can be a bad thing. Everyone seems to be coasting and no one really is pushing the line. Most of the talent has left in the past year and the company is really riding the slowing momentum of 'the brand'.

    The company has not backfilled positions after the layoffs so everyone is spread super thin and isnt able to really do one or two things to their maximum potential. Everything is done to the minimum needed to get by.

    Advice to Management

    Stop listening to Nick's 'gut decisions' and use data to drive the ship.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at GoPro (San Mateo, CA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process took 2 weeks. Got a call from a recruiter and then I wan invited for the on-site interview. It was a pleasant experience. I went through a rapid interview process where I talked to 6 people back to back in 3 hours and that was it! They were quite enthusiastic and passionate about their work, not to mention the affection towards the company and its products. One advice to the candidates would be to show your passion and motivation and why you want to work for GoPro. I am sure the answer is not tough but you also have to showcase your previous work (can be anything like a mobile app, photos, videos, code or a website!). They were quite patient and encouraged me to speak whatever I wanted to about the company or my experience. Got the offer in the next week!

    Interview Questions

    • Some basic Java questions and because I had my laptop, I was asked to show my coding patterns and what best practices I follow.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Didn't have to negotiate. They asked my expectation and matched it.
