    I worked at Linden Lab full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great working environment, with flexibility that only an established battled worn company in the bay area can provide.

    Cons

    A little too flexible at times, with some employees not operating at the level you would like your peers to operate at.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Linden Lab (Seattle, WA) in October 2009.

    Interview

    Very flaky interview process. Initial was a phone screen with an HR recruiter, then a technical phone interview with a developer. Was told to expect a call in the next couple of days to schedule a in person interview. Didn't hear anything or get any response back from checking in until 3 weeks later when they asked to schedule an interview, no explanation for the delay.

    They flew me down to their headquarters for a 7 person all day interview battery. Was told I would hear about a decision within the next couple days. No response at all from them following that, not even the courtesy rejection letter.
