    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I had a wholly unpleasant experience interviewing with this company. The interviewer seem disorganized and wasn't honest on the whole.

    I asked about the codebase, the general working conditions and the day-to-day operations. The interviewer seemed to be covering up alot of things, making it seem better than it actually was.

    A couple of red flags:

    Doesn't seem like they can keep engineers on staff. The pay seems to be very low.

    Also, doesn't appear to be a good work-life-balance. Overworked staff and understaffed teams.

    I'd pass.
