    Interview

    Well thought out questions but very long process. Appreciated getting to talk to different levels of management, but felt a bit repetitive and took weeks to hear back between interviews. Would have been nice to have been told the salary range right away, or at all. I've interviewed with other orgs and felt like compensation was much more transparent which built trust.
