I worked at LookSmart full-time (More than 3 years)
Dynamic industry, great location in SF, reasonable work/life balance.
Company lacks strong direction and strategic focus.
Advice to Management
Narrow the scope of the company's strategy.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at LookSmart (San Francisco, CA) in June 2011.
The interview was surprisingly easy. I was asked what I knew but not asked to demonstrate it. I was then called in for a second interview almost a month later. This centered more upon my interests than my skill set. I think it was so easy because I was replacing an intern.
There was no negotiation. I really wanted the job so I took it at the salary offered.
