I worked at Ning Inc full-time (More than a year)
The best group of engineers I've ever had the opportunity to work with; everyone cared about their respective tasks and contributions to the overall product, often working as hard as necessary to get things done regardless of how unreasonable the deadlines were.
Long hours, grueling redundant work that feels largely unnecessary, impartial to career growth opportunities internally.
Advice to Management
Delegate more to tenured employees, especially the ones that have shown dedication and area expertise, be more conscious of overworking, and provide constant feedback on career paths at the company.
I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Ning Inc (Palo Alto, CA) in January 2013.
Applied through a recruiter. got very prompt response.
Very friendly and talented team they asked challenging questions.
one of the interviewer did a phone interview with me writing code on a piece of paper, i had some difficultly deciphering his questions.
