I worked at GigMasters full-time (More than 5 years)
GigMasters is unlike any other company you'll work at. Everyone likes each other, spends time together, and works so hard to accomplish company and personal goals. Departments works so closely together that everyone in the company feels like they have a say in all company updates. We have a ping pong room, darts, a kegerator, a "cafe", and a popcorn machine. We have consistent happy hours, celebrate all personal and company milestones (usually with a champagne toast), and genuinely have fun at work every day while still striving to hit lofty goals. Anyone would be extremely lucky to work at GigMasters.
The only con I can think of is the constant changes, since we've recently been acquired by the XO Group. I believe that once all details are worked out (regarding how our relationship will work) the changes will slow down.
Advice to Management
Keep up what you're doing. Mike, you're fun, innovative, and so supportive to everyone in the company. My only suggestion would be to try and ween out the dead weight in the company as much as possible.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at GigMasters (Norwalk, CT).
After submitting my cover letter & resume, I heard back from the hiring manager and set up a phone screen. After the phone screen, I scheduled an on-site interview, which lasted a few hours. The on-site was a collection of shorter interviews where I talked with 2-3 people from the team I would be working on. At the end I took a quiz which covered basic web programming and computer science concepts. A week or two later, I went back for another series of interviews with managers in the other departments. Finally, I received my offer a few weeks later.
