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

    Pros

    Never has so much fun. So many fun company events, networking functions, free perks almost constantly and extremely transparent with company meetings and really thorough onboarding. Best days are demo days!

    Cons

    There's definitely a HUGE divide between product and sales. Feels like the a completely different world. Also, not a lot of cross team mingling. Engineers stick to themselves. Design, Support and Marketing seem the most approachable and social, while Sales side feels extremely cliquey and disparate from rest of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be more active getting to know members of all teams.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Foursquare (New York, NY) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Interview Process was dragged out and it seemed as though the company was trying to hold on to all their options without letting other candidates know. The actual interview went well and people were nice. Follow up was awful since had to reach out to find out next steps each time.
