    I have been working at Berkadia full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice, open minded, professional people working here with the right attitude towards change, responsibility, ownership and support. Good potential and support for career growth as well as stability.

    Cons

    The company is currently transitioning towards agile methodologies, this comes with some growing pain. Nothing unusual, but sometimes the precise mission lacks a little bit of communication and transparency.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salt Lake City, UT
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Berkadia (Salt Lake City, UT) in February 2018.

    Interview

    What a waste of time.

    The hiring manager required that our first 30 minute phone screen was only to be done using some funky homemade video conferencing software they have. I spend many hours a week in various video conferences and never have even the slightest technical difficulty, but their software is garbage, filled with console errors and the connection drops every 60 seconds.

    I had two interviews scheduled. The first time when the video failed, I contacted the recruiter who gave me a dial-in number to a conference call, which was such poor audio quality I could barely understand the guy and it dropped after about 2 minutes. Never got called back.

    I decided to give him a second chance. He was instructed by my recruiter that if the video didn't immediately work, to call me directly using a normal phone, not their lousy conference system. So I take time out of my workday to accommodate this unnecessary video chat. I wait and wait and wait for 10 minutes. The guy never even connects, and he never calls.

    Do you think as an interviewee that you'd be given a second chance if you no-showed to an interview? Heck no. So why on earth would I tolerate this from an interviewer?

    What a waste of my time and how extremely disrespectful this hiring manager is. Good luck finding anyone willing to work with you when this is how you behave. Maybe only people who are desperate and have zero standards will put up with this nonsense.
