    I have been working at Clearbanc full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There is a family culture where everyone is supportive whenever anyone needs help. There is transparency in the company through daily meetings and weekly demos to see what everyone is working on. Very fun atmosphere to work in - such as monthly company wide outings, daily catered lunches, Friday demos, intramural sports, etc. Leadership genuinely cares about your growth and happiness. There are tons of learning opportunities in this fast paced startup.

    Cons

    There are fluctuations in work life balance - during busy times of the year, the hours can get long.

    Interview

    I interviewed with Clearbanc in Q1, 2019. There were some positive things I appreciated about them, but overall the process was not a positive experience.

    The positives:
    - I began my application when I came across their job postings at Glassdoor. Once I submitted my application, they were quick to get back to me to setup an initial round of interview.
    - Overall, the vibe I got from visiting their office is that it is a fast-paced environment.
    - Lunch on the day of the interview.

    And now the negatives:
    - I received absolutely no clarity on who was going to interview me, or what type of questions they might ask. Maybe this is by design? All I was told was I would spend 5 hours in the office with them.
    - The time was long. I ended up spending 8 hours in the office. In the end I was tired and wanted to leave so badly :P
    - After my interview, my recruiter promised to give me an answer within 2 business days (explicitly said "2 days at the most"), but I waited for 10 days before I got any update.
    - Although most of the interviewers were nice, once of them was not a great listener. He never looked at me or show any emotion while I was answering his questions. I had no idea how difficult it is to try to talk to someone who shows 0 interest ("shows". I cannot say he wasn't paying attention. I don't know) -- in the end, I was literally struggling for words because I was so discouraged during the conversation.

    Overall, I think Clearbanc interview process has its merits, but it is also disorganized and disrespectful of my time.
