    I have been working at Beyond full-time

    Pros

    I like many aspects of Beyond, but the key differentiators for me are:
    - democratization of creative ideas (everyone is creative)
    - autonomy to own products in cross-functional teams
    - focus around delivering value, rather than hitting arbitrary deadlines or creating throwaway gimmicks
    - smart, honest and collaborative team members who support each other
    - constant energy to acquire new skills and embrace inevitable change

    I believe many of these aspects wouldn't be possible with a larger hierarchical organization.

    Cons

    The downside of a flatter hierarchy is that it's less clear where the opportunities to grow are within the company. Rather than traversing up a traditional ladder, it's more about expanding into new product areas and skills. Another downside with autonomous teams is that it's really on you and your team to define how you work, and some teams do need more support/structure.

    Advice to Management

    Keep what you're doing, you're onto a good thing! But bear in mind that in a flatter organizational structure you need to make it clear where the opportunities lie to grow and progress in a career.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Beyond (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Was contacted by a recruiter--did a phone screening and then was asked to come into the office for an onsite interview a few days later. It seemed like the interview went well and I was told the internal recruiter would reach out with next steps soon. I never heard back from them. Not even a simple email saying I would not be continuing in the recruitment process. Not getting back to a candidate who took the time to come in for an interview is just about the most unprofessional thing a company can do in my book.

    Interview Questions

    • How would i conduct different kinds of research and user testing, how do i like to work with a team, what kind of role am I looking for, etc.   Answer Question
