    I have been working at High 5 Games full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Samir Patel, the HR Director is the most knowledgeable and personable HR Leader that I've ever met in my over 20 years in this business. Samir not only understands High 5 policies, business objectives, and company strategy, he also knows how to pick the right types of leaders and support staff to ensure the right mix of talent; the recipe for any successful business. The onboarding process was the easiest and smoothest I've ever encountered, the work, life balance is second to none, and the management/technical staff are, without exception, the most professional, knowledgeable, and coolest folks in this industry. Would recommend High 5 Games to anyone who wants to be apart of one of the most cutting edge, forward thinking technology businesses in NYC!

    Cons

    In my 5 months, I have yet to see one...

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at High 5 Games (New York, NY) in January 2019.

    Interview

    I applied online. I had a technical screening over the phone with a Russian (another Russian guy came along). The questions were standard, boring, trivia questions: how hash map is implemented, multi threading, what happens if a thread dies.....
    The interviewers sound like KGB interrogators, unhappy.
    Zero attempt to measure ability for logical thinking. Just running the same old trivia questions that anyone can google if they need a refresh.
    I don't know anyone with more than 3 years of experience who does not know the nitty-gritty on these concepts.
    Yet they keep asking, as if your degree & experience are all fake. (Question to interviewer guys: Hey is it a senior position? Why did you bring the Junior question sheet with you?)
