    I have been working at Classified Ventures full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good work life balance, lots of travel, excellent remuneration, small team

    Cons

    Workload can get heavy being a small business.
    If travel isn't admired, this company is not for you.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Classified Ventures (Chicago, IL) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I went through 3 phone interviews; the interviewer was excellent and I received her vote and confidence for multiple projects. Twice they found an internal candidate, The third time they were willing to start a contract at 1 week; I was able to extend that. A 1 week contract raises concerns about the work culture and project issues the company must be aware of.
