    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Genbook full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You can make your own future here if you are a bit of an entrepreneur. Since the company is still small enough, you can really make a difference if you bring the skills to the table. I did. But it's up to you to make of it what you can. You got to show some vibe, skill and enthusiasm. Since it's a group effort, people expect you to have a group mentality. Got arcade games, poker & drinks. Pool table coming up. It's an environment where you can say anything you want (trust me, I'm Dutch, I say the weirdest things)

    Cons

    If you are looking for early retirement with lots of entitlements, don't bother. You will have colleagues that expect the best. There are nice perks, but none of them are about slacking it off. Can be competitive but don't take it personally.

    Advice to Management

    We're growing into a bigger company. It's time to invest in HRM and standardised performance reviews. It's part of us maturing into a bigger company. The young guns need it because they compare us with the big companies that do have these meetings and they have nothing to come b y.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Genbook (San Francisco, CA) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Recruiter phone screen. In person interview.

    Recruiter showed up late to the interview and was attire was highly disheveled. Collared shirt was untucked and his jeans looked old. That was the good part of the interview and it went downhill from there.

    The interview consisted of a series of questions like do you know how to create a landing page and what are the offers that worked for you in the past. What kind of response rates did they produce.

    Where do I send the invoice for my time? Clearly a waste of time and energy.
