Veteran Web Experience, lots to learn and great mentoring from the company leadership. The web projects are generally more complex than other agencies I've worked with, so it's a good place to keep your skills sharp, level up and develop professionally. I started there with website updates and bug fixes, but by the time I left I was working on development teams and making engineering-based decisions for sites and software.
People there really care about what they do and are largely supportive and helpful, and the technical standards are high. It's a smaller company, so you get to work with pretty much everyone and that was a plus for me.
The company has been around a long time so it's stable compared to some smaller agencies and has good benefits and location, with an easy commute.
Smaller company, so opportunities for senior career advancement might not be internal unless the timing is right. Leads/Directors don't micromanage your work and expect you to complete it, but this sometimes means you have to ask for direction instead of just receiving instructions. Sometimes the hours are long (especially around launch dates) but it's not a constant thing.
Advice to Management
Keep the team atmosphere positive and fun, and keep giving employees chances to try new things. Give instructions without losing the independence PINT employees are trusted with.
I applied online. I interviewed at PINT (San Diego, CA) in January 2017.
In short, if you get to the second interview, don't get your hopes up too high. If you apply for senior positions and are confident in your abilities, I would still recommend you give it a try.
Pint's interview process was very unprofessional and unappreciative. I had a phone interview, went through their challenge process and got a second interview at their office. I won't go into too many details about my personal experience since I don't want to get into troubles in the industry later. At first sight, the company seems friendly and laid-back. However, there were some obvious flags of inside politics, red tapes, and poor leadership.
Pint's CEO teaches courses and have an extensive network in UCSD. According to some of my contacts there, this company might have filled entry-level and junior positions with students and graduates from the campus, for salaries relatively small comparing to the market standard. Related interviews are done as facades for abiding by labor laws. Some experienced engineers have left the company due to lack of promotion or poor leadership (see the reviews with bad ratings,) making the younger ones having to cover legacy codes or work outside their job specifications.
