    I have been working at Linden Lab (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company is focused on delivering the next generation of Second Life and the excitement is palpable. Even with that focus, the company is still invested in making Second Life better for its users.

    Cons

    Can't really think of anything really negative to say. They only have catered lunch once a week.

    Advice to Management

    Management so far has been pretty good. Keep working on the new Second Life while making the current Second Life even better.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Linden Lab (San Francisco, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through their website. Process took about 2 weeks. Was contacted by HR Manager via email and asked to do a tech screening with their tech lead. Tech screening was via phone and lasted about 30 minutes. Was flown onsite to their office in San Francisco where I met with the team the position would be working with. Was given a tour of the office. There were 7 back to back interviews with a break in between for lunch. It was basically to check if I was qualified to work with them, they asked several questions for the white board. I was told about a week later that they chose to go with another candidate. The whole experience was really exhilarating.
