I have been working at All Campus full-time (More than a year)
All Campus is the most unique company I've ever experienced in a very good way. I've had opportunities to present ideas and shape the way my team approaches projects, even when there's been a process that existed before I was hired. I've always felt empowered to take ownership over my work.
The work is frequently challenging, but I've never felt so overwhelmed that I couldn't succeed; I've had a lot of support from management to ensure that I could always put my best foot forward.
The general culture is one that is built on transparency, continuous improvement and a dedication to developing yourself and others. This is shown through a ton of subjective factors, like the everyday support you get from coworkers as well as formal policies, such as the company providing payment for professional development activities (e.g. taking courses, going to professional development seminars) each year.
The flexible work schedule and generous working from home policy supports a strong work-life balance. And most managers are willing to work with their employees to accommodate situations as they arise. As long as the work is getting done and it's high quality work, All Campus will give you a lot of freedom.
There are enough social events to feel connected to other people in the company, but not so many that it feels forced. Plus, social events are usually held during work hours, so they don't interrupt time with family or responsibilities outside of work.
Just the typical downsides to working for a fast-growing company, but nothing has ever been so negative that it left a lasting impact on me. The workload can increase suddenly and dramatically from time to time, from new clients or a large number of requests coming in.
Management is still determining company structure, heirarchy and career advancement paths. I think it will always be a place where you have a hand in determining how you want to grow, so it isn't for people that just want to come to work and be told what to do.
Advice to Management
Keep focusing on the things that make the company great as we scale. The culture is something truly unique, and I hope that we can maintain the same level of transparency and the supportive environment.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at All Campus (Chicago, IL) in December 2015.
I had an Initial call with their recruiter, then an in-office interview with 2-3 people. About 2 weeks later I got a call with my offer. I accepted because I could see this was a great opportunity and company. Pretty simple, easy, and worth it!
