I have been working at Whitepages full-time (More than a year)
- Whitepages is a great place if you're looking to make a direct impact with your work and grow your career. We have a great new group of leadership who encourage and empower us to pursue new opportunities in our respective fields.
- I don't feel the need to tiptoe or beat around the bush with my manager, we are very direct and open. My manager also treats me like a person, not just an employee. They are very understanding that life happens and the work/life balance is the best I've ever seen at a company.
- Whitepages doesn't stand still or become complacent. We are always looking forward and it continues to be an exciting place to work.
- The overall culture feels more like family/good pals versus co-workers. Employees go out to lunch together, happy hour, etc. Everyone is just so friendly and welcoming.
- We have the most diverse group of employees, especially for such a small bunch.
- There are a lot of the typical tech company perks such as snacks, lots of drink options, events, happy hours, lunches, stand-up desks, etc.
I completely understand the pros of hiring new grads, but we need some more mid/manager level engineers to mentor these youngins.
Advice to Management
Keep on keepin' on. The transparency is great. With the new leadership, I feel very optimistic about the future of Whitepages and the opportunities for the employees in all departments.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Whitepages (Seattle, WA).
Initial call, the recruiter was 30 min late, they asked via email to reschedule for the following day. Recruiter called 15 min late for rescheduled call, asked simple questions to gauge personality and business acumen. After the call I was sent a link with an NDA and options for scheduling a call with the hiring manager. Next call with hiring manager, who was also late to scheduled call time, couldn't succinctly answer questions related to the product or customer base. Most of the call with hiring manager focused on my past relevant experience. I was sent an invitation for an onsite 1:1, and an ask that I make myself available for this meeting early in the week. After making changes to my schedule for an early week meeting they emailed asked for a meeting date at the end of the week. After shuffling my schedule again to accommodate their ask, they cancelled the meeting the day before indicating that they would not be moving forward. The end result being a colossal waste of my time and their companies resources.
