I have been working at Return Path full-time (More than a year)
Get to work on interesting and complicated problems 90% of the time. Great benefits. Friendly coworkers. Make a product that benefits the general population.
Feel that salary is lower than other firms in Austin. Also promotions can take a while to come to fruition.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you are doing. Macro management style is great. Benefits are awesome. Pay your employees more competitively.

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Return Path (Austin, TX) in March 2017.
I received an invite for a coding challenge before even talking to a recruiter or anything - red flag.
They provided a screenshot and asked me to implement it using Angular, React, or Vue. The screenshot was the only spec provided, they kept saying they wanted us to make our own unique solution. Not buying it, just laziness imo.
It took about 4 hours to do the coding challenge, pretty standard and a fair amount of time. That said, again, this was the very first step, I had no chance to talk to a recruiter and learn about salary expectations, culture, etc.
I received feedback about 2 months later basically saying my solution sucked because it didn't implement several features (which we're never mentioned, again, all I had was a static image) and there were no unit tests (this was never mentioned).
I'm not trying to slam the company, they seem like nice people and did try to give positive feedback, but the hiring process needs a lot more effort on their end.
Some genuine advice for the company: if you have a particular solution in mind, you need to give more direction. Also, allow candidates to do a phone screen first, it would save time on both ends. Finally, I get people are busy, but I could see there we're only 15 people invited to the challenge, two months for generic feedback is entirely too long.
