I have been working at Convertro full-time (More than a year)
Work life balance is good. Good SDLC, smart people, and smart engineers. Geographically distributed team helps prevent crazy work hours. Not boring. There's always something to do.
There are challenges that exist from having 2 very important parts of the company in other timezones. Promotions are infrequent. Not sure more bosses are needed though.
Advice to Management
Keep going, keep trying. Strive to keep getting better and better. Encourage or mentor career growth more.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Convertro (Santa Monica, CA) in July 2015.
I should know better than to trust 3rd party recruiters. Against my better judgement I let one set up a phone interview with Converto. I had 4 phone interviews in one day, which was basically a waste of time. 3 of the 4 were regular interviews with otherwise nice people and relevant questions. The entire company apparently works from home, and not in a good way, because there were dogs barking in the background the whole time. The last guy was a founder I think and also asked me the stupid question about the balls. I thought this guy was a total idiot himself and none of them seemed to actually know what the role of Product Manager actually consists of. Also, this is basically AOL, but they represent themselves as a start up, which they certainly are not. Skip this lame company.
