I worked at Ocean Tomo full-time (More than a year)
This was my first job out of college and it was great. The people taught me a lot about business, financial analysis,and intellectual property. The office space was very nice. Social activities were good. I learned a lot, got to travel, and had great co-workers; not sure what else I could ask for. The only reason I left was because I got an unbelievable offer from a dotcom. Otherwise I would have stayed.
I've read some of the other reviews on here and I'll agree that it would be nice to have matching for the 401k. Not sure about some of the other negative comments as I was always treated well, though more transparency on firm revenue and earnings would have been good (to say "we are profitable" but not telling everyone how MUCH profit seems a bit too secretive).
Advice to Management
Although the space was very nice, all the Analysts (like me) had to sit in cubes, even when there were open offices available. Hey, would it have killed you to let some of us have a windowed office, even if only for a few months?
The first round was a behavioral Skype interview. The interviewer was very friendly, she was a finance major with an mba but moved to HR full time for better family life. Mostly asked specific questions about my resume. Only asked a few behavioral questions. Second round was a full day at the office with multiple interview and a trip to lunch.
