I have been working at Calabrio full-time (Less than a year)
Customers very happy with the Calabrio application and voice their praise willingly. There are huge opportunities for career growth as the company builds out their operations following a recent acquisition. The culture is everything - people truly enjoy each other, are transparent in communicating, and strive to make your experience positive/successful. Very intelligent people with a lot of drive.
Typical growing pains, establishing scale-able process is driven by only a few people. Very technical product that requires some experience with telephony or contact centers. Calabrio crazy is a thing, can be fun for the right people.
I applied online. I interviewed at Calabrio.
I had a phone screen with HR and then two interviews over the phone with a few different hiring managers. The phone screen with HR left me not wanting to proceed with the company, but I gave them the benefit of the doubt and continued. It was structured in a very corporate way where the questions asked were simply about years of experience in technology, rather than depth of experience in any given silo. There wasn't one question that led me to believe they were screening for cultural fit or interest (which is the most important thing for me when looking for a new opportunity). It felt like the HR phone screen could have been accomplished by adding a few additional questions during the application process online.
The screens with the Hiring Managers were an improvement b/c it did feel like it was more about fit and experience. However, I felt it was strange that both were 15 minute phone calls rather than in-person sessions. One of the Hiring Manager screens was for a role that I was clearly not qualified for, but I was asked by the recruiter to explore it. The Hiring Manager had clear expectations for what was needed (although the job description did not clearly articulate it) and my experience did not fit the role, leaving me embarrassed that the recruiter even recommended it to me.
