I have been working at Equilar full-time (More than 3 years)
I've been at 8 companies in my career and I've never seen such genuine concern over the well being of the employees. Of course, this concern is only offered to those who are committed and hardworking. The benefits are amazing for a "startup" company. $1,000-3,000 each year to learn new things, take classes, go to events. Paid holiday week shutdown, 401k matching, forgivable loans for home purchase and higher education. These are just some of the benefits for all employees! Higher level employees can share in company ownership and profit distribution.
The CEO is committed to the goals of the company and to making the corporate world a better place through proper governance. It's been a 18 year journey and he shows no sign of letting up. He has high expectations of the employees and those who show engagement and potential can expect great rewards.
Finally for entry level people, there are plenty of opportunities to gain skills and learn more. The company values commitment and attitude. I've been here 3 years and I'm still charged up!
The company deals in deep data gathering and analytics. Sometimes that can be tedious as we look for relationships and minute details in data. You have to deal.
Teamwork is best done when members are present. There is little opportunity to work from home.
Mixed pro and con. The company is very enterprise focused, although we operate in an environment that is fixated on startups. It's often difficult to keep some employees long term as the attraction to "cool" startups is very high. As a result, there's turnover that an affect key teams.
Advice to Management
Keep focus on the greater long term goal. There is clear evidence that its' working. The reward is steady but you cannot get distracted too much by the naysayers.
Continue to find new markets and develop new products with a careful measurement to understand when things are going off the rails.
Do more to communicate to employees so they understand and can take advantage of what the company has to offer. Don't assume they know what is available.
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Equilar (Redwood City, CA) in November 2017.
I applied through university career website. A week later, they contacted me to arrange for a 20 minute phone interview. A week later, I was invited to participate in two-hour Skype Interview, which involved behavioral questions and a test component. Test component works best on large screen. A few weeks later, in response to email learned that I would not be moved to next stage.
