I have been working at Minerva Networks part-time (Less than a year)
My experience of the interview process was positive, and I received a phone call and offer shortly afterward. It was one of the quicker responses and turnarounds I've experienced in an interview process. Since working at Minerva, I have seen that management is committed to helping their employees grow and learn, which shows their dedication to the success of the company. They show a proactive leadership style, and give their team the chance to work independently and make decisions on behalf of the company's best interests. Management also holds quarterly meetings with the team which I think is important for us all to hear and understand the short/long term goals, etc. There is also an online recognition program, which helps the overall culture by giving and receiving appreciation for hard work by colleagues and management. Additionally, there is coffee, other soft drinks and food available in the break room, and cookouts in the summer. Everyone has been very friendly and helpful in times of need. While employees and managers are always busy, no one has been too busy to take time and help or answer questions.
There are not many things to say negatively about working at Minerva, besides the obvious SF Bay traffic. Overall, I enjoy working here.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Minerva Networks (San Jose, CA) in March 2017.
HR was very good at communicating during all stages of the interview process. However, I am appalled by the lack of professionalism from senior level management. After conducting over 6 phone interviews, numerous Skype interviews followed by an onsite interview, you would think the company would have the decency to call to tell you they have chosen another candidate. Not to mention, they will make you wait over a month before even coming to a decision. After reading the reviews on Glassdoor about the company, I was skeptical to even interview with them. Please be warned.
