    I worked at Disqus full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Amazing, happy people with an average of 3+ years at the company
    - Too much delicious food
    - Great product and well known across tech
    - Comfortable, bright office with windows everywhere
    - Unlimited PTO means unlimited PTO, with most people taking 3-4 weeks off minimum

    Cons

    - Sometimes being too comfortable results in a lack of motivation
    - A few of the elder folks need a fire lit under their butts
    - Unlimited PTO can lead to too many days out of the office when trying to get things done

    Advice to Management

    The newer regime has been a great boost to the company production and morale. Don't let folks who are standing in the way, or talking louder than everyone else, control the people trying to get s--t done.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Disqus (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Phone Interview with lead engineer was first step. They asked about my background and after a little bit of introduction technical question started. we used a online whiteboard and I was able to show my code to interviewer.

    They are professionals and I liked their culture. They reached out to me to inform me that I wasn't a good fit. This shows they respect candidates.
