Pros

Unlike other companies where onboarding is often an afterthought, there has been a lot of thought put into how to get new employees acclimated to automatic. The team here, gets that it sometimes

Cons

You really need to be a self-starter to work here. If you are use to sitting around and having someone to tell you want to do, this probably won't work for you.

Advice to Management

keep up the great work!

  1. Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Automattic (United States) in May 2021

    Interview

    All communication was done by email & slack, I never spoke with anyone. Started with a brief Q&A, then went right to code test. Code test was modifying WP plugin, not difficult. Apparently I missed a security issue & they claimed I didn't answer one question. I pointed out that I had answered that question, even pointed to the file, line and comment. No response. This process was a waste of my time.
