    Pros

    All of the people are generally top performers, they work hard and play hard. There's a great camaraderie and culture. There's continual improvement and this place takes being an Agile shop to heart. Management continues to set goals and this team is able to meet them again and again. Planning happens in small spurts and has a short term focus to achieve the next set of goals.

    Cons

    Work moves a very fast past and there's a lot to learn in a short amount of time. There's always wanting for better tools, and budgets tend to keep some decisions at bay, but until profitability is reached, it is a good conservative approach. Working with our India counterparts can be challenging sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Some longer term planning should start taking place soon at a high level to understand what some of the first profitable steps will need to be. As long as we can keep the culture and the drive together, this place will continue to amaze me.

    Interview

    6.5 Hours and 11 separate interviews but I got the job. I did about 30 minutes to 60 minutes of interviews where they asked me detail questions about the search engine optimization industry and how I could improve their business. They also wanted to ensure that I could deal with the lead generation team.
