    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Onvia full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    New CEO is bring renewed energy and excitement. Business is getting a lot more focused and the product is getting more robust and easier to use. The new administration (like him or hate him) is also bringing some new focus on the government spending space, which is great for us! Culture is very open (even the CEO is in a cube!) and people are taking more risks and trying new things, which is good to see after a period of playing it safe. The people are the best part - I actually really enjoy the people I work with along with the work.

    Cons

    Better transportation benefits would make it far easier to get downtown, even though being on the edge of the retail corridor doesn't suck for lunchtime shopping or after hours happy hour.

    Advice to Management

    Stay open and alert to opportunities; invest in your people and they will invest in you. Keep the spirit of transparency and inclusion to build the "trusted connection" you want.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Onvia (Seattle, WA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    First had a phone screen with the HR director. Had a little trouble scheduling but she stayed in contact and was flexible. Very nice chat, half hour and felt like she was real. Asked me questions, gave me time to ask mine and was clear about the next steps. The questions were not tough, but not ones I've heard before. Felt like a conversation.
