    I worked at Forio full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The developer team is open and even eager to use new technology. If you are interested in experimenting with new frameworks and javascript libraries, you'll get support and interest from others.

    Forio has the structure and size of a startup, but without the instability. Projects are collaborative across teams. People like to work with each other.

    Cons

    A relatively unstructured environment can be a double-edged sword depending on your personality. Nobody is going to give you a checklist on how to do your job well. This isn't a con if you're comfortable with ambiguity and want to take your role by the reigns, but if you're used to highly defined tasks you may feel a bit overwhelmed.

    The small team size can mean that you have to work on several projects at once.

    Advice to Management

    Give developers clear opportunities for growth and what the future looks like if you succeed in your role.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Forio (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Technical phone screen with a DOM manipulation challenge that was performed in an online code editor, then a chat phone screen, then a 4-hour onsite with various members of the team in different departments. Was grilled mostly one-on-one by different levels of engineers and designers in CSS/design, then algorithms, then JavaScript promises/ajax/xhr. Exhausting, but I guess standard process.
