    I worked at Pivotal Labs full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pivotal Labs was my first professional software job and I absolutely loved it. I did not truly appreciate the company's greatness until I started working at other companies. The benefits include:

    - Culture of kindness
    - New projects keeps things exciting
    - Unmatched work life balance
    - Free breakfast everyday, snacks, lunch provided once a week
    - Environment is very conducive for learning
    - Travel opportunities (but not requirements)

    It was such an amazing experience and I miss every day of it!

    Cons

    - No clear path for career progression
    - TDD and pair programming is not for everyone

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pivotal Labs (Cambridge, MA).

    Interview

    Phone screen interview following up by Pair programming session with a senior engineer. Such a waste of time and efforts. They don't know what they want. The office was a chaos.... So loud... Everybody was talking... Such a bad experience.
