I worked at LOUD Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)
The people there are awesome. Without them I would never have stayed there so long.
Poor management of the company, lack of recognition, long hours, underpaid, little room for advancement and little thanks for the dedication and often soul-crushing work.
Advice to Management
Change everything. Get back to Bob Mackie's original vision. Bring back the rock'n'roll atmosphere. Your people will gladly work hard when they can also play hard and be themselves. Stifle the people who built the company and you stifle the company itself.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at LOUD Technologies (Seattle, WA) in February 2011.
After applying online, I was interviewed over the phone with a few basic questions directly from my resume and cover letter. During this interview, I was also asked some basic technical questions that would help to evaluate my skill/knowledge level.
First in person interview was with HR, which was all basic resume questions. Then the engineering manager interviewed me in great detail and gave me a detailed technical evaluation, including a paper test and then additional questions to work out on the white board.
3rd round of interviews were both 1:1 and groups. The first 1:1 was with the person on the team that had the best record of picking the right personality for the group, then I met with the Head of Engineering. Next rounds were all groups of people that would be on my team directly or would be working very closely with me.
Then I got hired.
