    I worked at Jawa full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    JAWA owned many different companies and projects, so great opportunity to work on diversified projects from Facebook games to android apps. Great writing and content staff with huge diverse backgrounds from entertainment, music, arts, etc.

    The free lunches were great, but not unusual for startups

    Cons

    Workloads at start ups can be stressful. If your not use to changing projects or strategic direction on a dime, then larger matrixed companies are probably better for you. Senior management kept direct reports always in the loop but it didn't always trickle down to the front line programmer or customer service rep.

    Advice to Management

    Keep projects a little more consistent. If something is working and successful the right effort is made, but if one of your projects is lingering its best to retire it faster then holding out.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Jawa (Scottsdale, AZ) in May 2011.

    Interview

    Basic preview questions from HR, a personality quiz and a panel interview with hiring manager and co-worker. The personality quiz was timed and I was told I "did well", yet there were "no right or wrong answers". Upon hire I learned that the author of this quiz was somehow linked to the owner of the company and he subscribed to all of their products and services. It seemed more like helping out a friend by buying is service rather than being important to the process. It wasn't a big deal, though.
