I have been working at Experts Exchange full-time (More than a year)
For my first few years out of college I had jobs that, while related to my degree, were at places that didn't allow for much development--they were just jobs. Coming to Experts Exchange I finally felt that I was not only putting my degree and experience to work, but was also learning and growing faster than I had in any previous situation. This company really cares about its employees, and wants the best out of them, so they encourage development. At Experts Exchange I not only feel like part of a team that's working together to accomplish something bigger, but also a valuable contributing member of that team.
Depending on your role and department, you might end up spending a lot of your time in meetings.
Advice to Management
The management team's been growing and moving the company in a new direction, which has made for a transitional year or two, but as everyone starts rowing in the same direction, the ride starts getting a little smoother.
I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Experts Exchange (San Luis Obispo, CA).
The questions were pretty typical, for beginner unix management, (i.e. how do you find a file, if you don't know a command, how do you figure out how to use it). Also questions on database objects, basic/intermediate sql. The whole process was a phone screening, followed by an onsite interview which started with a skills test, then an interview with 1 member of the sys admin team, and the Senior DBA, follwed by an interview with the Director of Engineering.
