    I have been working at C3.ai full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The employees are some of the most talented people I've had the pleasure of working with in my career.

    The senior leadership team has more experience building global market leading companies from ideation to $B+ than any current B2B startup team in Silicon Valley.

    Digital Transformation is one of the largest technology transitions in the past 50 years and C3.ai is in a market leading position to capitalize upon it.

    Cons

    If you are looking for a relaxed atmosphere where you can saunter in at 10 and leave at 4, this is not the place for you. You are required to produce your best work 100% of the time and you will be working alongside exceptionally bright people who expect you to make a substantial contribution to the success of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hire people who are committed to performing with excellence, dedicated to continuous learning, enjoy working collaboratively, and understand that startups don't become large successful companies without significant personal effort from everyone.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at C3.ai.

    Interview

    Connected through a recruiting agency and was given a Hackerrank exam consisting of multiple choice questions and a short coding portion.

    Insulting one-size-fits-all pipeline for a field where so many different skillsets and approaches are valid. The team are clearly looking for cookie-cutter textbook/classroom answers and completely devalues real world experience. I've never needed to calculate the entropy of a random forest split by hand at work, so why would you expect me to remember ML formulae I saw 5 years ago in class?
