    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at 18F full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    engineers & designers get to work on meaningful projects
    we have a lot of autonomy
    can select the work we want to do and are passionate about
    cares about diversity and inclusion more than i have seen elsewhere - of course still needs work getting more diverse staff but is focused on it
    a lot of great teammates -(no matter where you are there are always a few who are not measuring up)

    Cons

    leadership is allowing staff to dictate too much and is not setting a strategy
    too many acting roles in leadership/mgmt positions

    Advice to Management

    set the strategy and vision and don't try to be all things to everyone

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at 18F (Remote, OR) in October 2017.

    Interview

    A multi-step interview process with both phone screens, skills test, video chats, culminating with a 3 hour long multi-person chat with 18F team members.

    Overall, a fair interview process. They take their time with each person, and are very open with the timeframes and expectations. It all falls a bit apart in the end during the "culture fit" interview, mostly due to questions unrelated to technical expertise.

    Interview Questions

    • First round is basic software questions. Similar to other phone screens.   Answer Question
