    I have been working at Mercedes-Benz Research & Development North America full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Exciting work with an awesome brand, some jobs get a car!
    Always working on improvements
    Several new leaders were just hired and very positive about that
    Great people overall!

    Cons

    Some managers need Development and they are working on that
    Some employees complain too much and I think it’s spoiled SV mentality and not enough experience with other companies.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Mercedes-Benz Research & Development North America.

    Interview

    They are quite welcoming and nice. They will begin by explaining more in detail what you will be doing in your position, then proceed to ask you questions. The questions were primarily behavioral with an exception to a couple that looked to be answered with more technical terms and language.
