    I have been working at Black Mountain Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Great working environment
    - Wonderful and competitive compensations
    - Very flexible working hours
    - Smart coworkers that are willing to help others succeed.
    - Accessible working location (Midtown, Manhattan)
    - FUN. (Happy hours, company trips, office parties...)
    - Non-stressful, meaningful work
    - Very nice, fun and talkative CEOs and managers

    Cons

    - VERY selective interview process, may have missed out on some potentially great candidates. But this is also a pro, since everyone that works there are not only smart, but also fits the culture of the company
    - Must be willing to learn to succeed

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Black Mountain Systems (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    Interview process was very fair. There is a take home test to first evaluate you aren't an idiot. Then in person interview which was very reasonable. Not algorithms but more, here are your requirements, build this.

    Interview Questions

    • The in person interview was much more real world experience. The online test was too C# or SQL specific which imo is not as important as other skills.   Answer Question
