    I have been working at Excelligence Learning full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The development team is small, but super nice. They all have at least a decade, up to three decades, of industry experience. Excelligence will make sure that you have the tools you need to get in your coding zone. With a smaller team, what you code tends to have a bigger impact on the direction of the company than in larger teams. Fair compensation, casual Mondays and Fridays, and lots of steady work for the foreseeable future are even more reasons why I have nothing but positives.

    Cons

    No cons. We're moving into a new facility soon; much larger, more modern, and a better view. All the old riff-raf has been swept out and the company is on an uptick.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Excelligence Learning (Monterey, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    First, there was a phone interview with the Vice President of Human Resources. They went over my resume and I helped make the case why my skills and experience were a good fit for the position. Aside from standard behavior questions, it was a quick call before being set up with an in-person interview with the Chief Information Officer of the company. There, I went over many of the same questions as I did on the phone. The CIO gave me more background information on the company and, once established that I was still interested and qualified in the position, set me up with an in-person interview with both a developer (my direct supervisor) and his supervisor on the same day. They both proceeded to review my resume with me in a meeting room for a couple hours. They talked about my skills, experience, interests, background, my exposure to technologies they are working with, and even my side projects. My final interviewer took me on a tour of the facility and demonstrated some of their operations and company culture.
