    -
    -

    Cons

    - Not an "employee first" company culture
    - Very poor work/life balance
    - Doesn't pay well
    - Direct managers, unable to "manage" people
    - Leads by fear

    Advice to Management

    If you are targeting hires right out of college, you must change approach to "company culture." More internal events, cater to each individual vs. company as a whole, better work/life balance, less "cut throat" nature.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Intellisphere (Princeton, NJ) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I made the mistake of not "Glassdooring" them before I submitted my resume. I was suspicious right off the bat when I received a phone call only an hour or two after I submitted my resume. I was asked a few questions on the phone and then I was asked to come in for an interview. After I hung up I looked them up on Glassdoor and was immediately sorry I had agreed to interview.

    The interview was the absolutely most ridiculous one I've ever been on. The office is a mess. A maze of offices and cubicles, piles of boxes everywhere, it felt dirty, and when I sat down in a chair for my interview it was a hard, white plastic chair that I would almost expect to find in a shower. I was told they'd be moving soon - so shouldn't someone have been cleaning up?

    My takeaway from the interview with two people in the accounting group was that there is a huge amount of turnover. Almost everyone in the department has been there a year or less. Some positions turned over more than once in a year. I was ready to leave right then but I didn't.

    Instead, next I got to take their "written exams," a short and long test of basic math and reasoning skills. So old school that I think it was created on the mimeograph we had in grade school and copied hundreds of times since. I could have passed it in grade school. I was then supposed to interview with a higher-up but he was (blessedly) unavailable. I assumed this meant they weren't interested in me either.

    I never heard from them again. Best part of the whole experience was telling my friends the story after the fact.
