I have been working at Broadway Technology full-time
Driven folks with focus on delivering the best in the breed software. Leadership has a vision to grow the company keeping the core values of fairness and excellence intact. Senior folks are always willing to lend guidance and everyone is fun to work with. Austin riverside office location is fabulous.
Lack of bars close by to go for Happy hours after work. Had to think really hard to come up with this one..
Advice to Management
Diversify by expanding product offerings outside of Finance industry.
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Broadway Technology (New York, NY).
I wasn't able to go through the interview process. A recruiter contacted me and wanted to interview immediately. I wasn't able to make this timeline so we agreed to reschedule for a few weeks later. I contacted the recruiter at the set time and was told to wait a few more weeks for internal matters to be sorted out. I again contacted the recruiter at the set time and was ignored for a few more weeks before receiving a notification that the position had been filled.
Overall, the lack of communication seemed unprofessional. Additionally, when I would contact the recruiter, I would emphasize my desire to interview before the position was filled and reassured that I'd have a fair shot at the job. This turned out to be false as it turned out that other candidates had been interviewing the whole time I was waiting and those candidates accepted the position.
I wouldn't consider applying again.
