    Pros

    At ConsenSys you are a free person. While reporting requirements do vary by team, in general ConsenSys employees have a lot of agency to work wherever they think they can contribute the most value. If you are okay operating in ambiguous environments, you'll do fine at ConsenSys.

    Cons

    Some people abuse the freedom ConsenSys offers, which is discouraging. If you are not the type of person comfortable with ambiguity, and who enjoys receiving detailed instruction, ConsenSys will be tough for you.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ConsenSys.

    Interview

    I had a total of FIVE interviews; some were one-on-one, some were with up to five people. By my fourth interview, the interviewer said he couldn't believe they had put me through four already. He said it was highly unusual, and that he couldn't imagine why I would need another. Then I had another. I asked about what the next step in the hiring process would be, they told me if I didn't hear something within 48 hours to reach out to them. I waited 3 days and emailed, but got no response. Finally, a week later, an automated rejection email came.
