I have been working at Applied Minds full-time
If you're the right person to fit into this hyper multi-disciplinary, highly creative, and often chaotic work environment, you will LOVE this job. Your enjoyment of working at Applied Minds scales with your competence at producing near-miracles in a variety of disciplines. Projects have a serious impact in a variety of fields. Lots of subject matter experts to learn from. Strong creative culture. Casual dress. Frequent opportunities to learn and play with new technologies. Management lets employees do what they do best without micromanagement. Flat structure -- there is no real middle management to get in the way of getting things done. Immediate ownership of projects -- if you can handle it! Very few office politics to navigate. Management is extremely responsive to input from team members. Company is growing. You might have been the smartest person where you used to work, but not anymore.
You might have been the smartest person where you used to work, but not anymore. Not for the weak of heart or will, or those whose egos bruise easily. When deadlines are approaching, work hours can be long (60 to 80 hours/week) although most of the time is ~40 hours/week.
Advice to Management
Provide comp time for full-time salaried employees working over X number of hours per week.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Applied Minds (Glendale, CA).
Short phone interview with recruiter, first in-person interview was extremely long. Met with numerous members of the HR team. Second in-person interview was with VP of HR, overall positive experience.
