    I worked at Architech full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you are looking for autonomy, just want to code and don't care about job advancement this is the job for you.
    - Agile development company with no reporting structure. No boss to tell you what to do and give you directions.
    - If you are assertive and proactive, you can get yourself assigned to most project you like.
    - Good variety of projects because most of them are short term.
    - Strong software engineering culture where front-end development is a low priority. But very collaborative and capable coworkers. .

    Cons

    Stepping stone until you find another place with mentorship and career advancement.
    - There's very little opportunity for career advancement because that's reserved for a few of the bosses' favorites
    - You have to find your own way because there's no boss, no mentor and no one to guide you or give you objective feedback
    - Lack loyalties to workers. Recently they had "parted ways" with people whom skillsets no longer align with their ever changing company goals.
    - Low employee engagement and moral - seemed like HR's only job is to recruit and fire staff.

    Advice to Management

    Get some executive couching. Lead by listening: don't just get feedback from the customers get it from the staff as well.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Architech (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    3 Stage interview with key team members. Overall a positive experience with good questions that help the team discover the right person for the position. I met some of the designers and recruitment team on interview one. The art director on interview 2 and the CEO on interview 3.
