    I have been working at Golden Frog full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A general change in direction to be more focused.
    The leadership has changed and now they seem to listen much better and a lots less meetings and other things taking up time dev time.
    Relaxed atmosphere
    Good office
    They allow you to take initiative and do things pro-actively.
    Lots of butt hurt people here that were let go for whatever reasons and I wouldn't believe all the reviews you read. Everyone seems pretty happy honestly.

    Cons

    There is a lot going on and sometimes direction gets confused and not all information trickles down.
    Some of the benefits could use tuning as they reward being there for 20years even if you do nothing but stare at screen now.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focus and turning knobs to get better in small increments.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Golden Frog (Austin, TX) in December 2013.

    Interview

    Got a call from a recruiter. Got an 'Exercise' to work on. Submitted and never heard from again.

    Interview Questions

    • Got a silly multi threading (Simple lock problem) to complete.

      Never even got the 'Pursuing other candidates' reply. Don't like my time being wasted.   Answer Question
