    I have been working at Index Exchange full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very talented teams, amazing clients and product, being with a true market leader. Stocked kitchens, catered lunches, fully paid health benefits. Very transparent and "down to earth" leadership.

    Cons

    They have been around for a while, with little growth but now are in hyper growth. Lots of growing pains that any startup will go through, but on the plus side, great technology, established A-lister clients and no debt.

    Product Marketing Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Index Exchange.

    Interview

    Unprofessional and Inappropriate Interview

    The problem was in the in-person final round, when the hiring manager and the direct reports came in for a surprise, cultural fit round. However, it quickly became very unprofessional. Questions ranged from mild but bizarre, such as "What ice cream flavor would you be? And pressing further, would you have chunks of fruit in it?" to inappropriate, such as "What is your guilty pleasure" and "What gets your heart racing?"

    At the beginning, everything went smoothly: phone screen, two 30-minute interviews: one in-person and one remote, and a take-home assignment. I received enthusiastic feedback and got the sense that I had the right skills for the job.

    The entire final round was scheduled for two hours, and I got a sense that I was a bit overqualified for the role. The hiring manager kept asking me what I wanted from this role, told me that the last person quit after a few months, and it was evident that he/she was extremely insecure about filling this position.

    Combined with the low self-esteem of the hiring manager and the unorthodox nature of the questions, my advice if you are applying for this role is to calmly decline as soon as you can.
