    I have been working at Mayfield Robotics full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Extremely collaborative environment with a great group of people
    Management that takes work-life balance seriously
    An exciting product with lots of engaging technical challenges

    Cons

    Lots of work done by external contractors, necessitating lots of meetings
    Team is still smaller than ideal; task prioritization can be pretty cutthroat

    Advice to Management

    We have a lot of different communication channels, some of which are passive in nature. Some degree of standardization, process, or even trimming could be helpful in keeping people synced up.

    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.

    Introducing Kuri: Does Your Life Need a Home Robot?

    This is Kuri, a genderless home robot meant to bring a robotic spark of life to your home. Made by Mayfield Robotics, is she an attempt to make the future look like "the Jetsons" or is this the beginning of a world where robots do everything for us?

  • http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQCxI

    Home robot Kuri is like an Amazon Echo designed by Pixar

    Domestic robots are sort of here, with self-driving and speakers that control your smart home, but Mayfield Robotics' Kuri could be the first real home robot, combining mobility and true interaction with approachable, friendly design.
