    Slow to respond for HR requests (went from temp to perm a month ago and still do not have proper wages to accommodate this)
    Have been here for nearly 2 months and have not felt very welcomed

    Advice to Management

    Have more cross team culture building.
    Very clique heavy dependent on role at company.
    Make sure HR and upper management is following up with requests in appropriate about of time

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Ladders (New York, NY) in July 2017.


    Recruiter found me on LinkedIn. Had a quick phone call to scope out interest and skills (and probed for salary range). Second phone call for actual phone screen; asked basic questions about algorithms/data structures, backend, Linux, and other dev tool knowledge. 3.5 hour on-site visit included two coding questions on paper; OO modeling and one more algorithm question on whiteboard; and talk with HR director. Follow-up on-site was a 1/2 hour discussion with an engineer from a different team than in the first round.

    Technical portions definitely require prep but were well executed on their part. Each meeting wasn't a lecture, but a conversation, and the interviewers were polite.

    Ultimately, they decided I was a good cultural fit, but lacking enough experience for Level 2.
