    I have been working at Mayfield Robotics full-time

    Pros

    Team of very talented, highly motivated people.
    Very good work-life balance, upper management values employee well-being highly.
    Nap rooms.

    Cons

    No curtains in the nap rooms :(
    Team bonding events are somewhat rare and could happen more often.

    Advice to Management

    Not much advice to give to management, aside maybe from making sure that the good level of communication that currently exists in the company doesn't suffer as the company grows in numbers.

    Interview

    After an initial phone call with the HR person I got several code challenges to resolve without a time limit. I resolved them using the best approach for their requirements and sent them back with extensive documentation about the problem, the solution and the strategy chosen to resolve it.
    After few days the HR person told me the technical manager didn't want to continue with my application, and when asked for feedback about my code implementation she said she will ask the manager and get back to me. But she never did.

    I don't think is a good recruiting practice to drop technical applications after a code challenge without providing at least a very basic feedback. Code challenges take several hours to research, code, test and document, and you would expect at least the courtesy of the reviewer to follow up with you.
