I worked at Pocket Kings full-time (More than 3 years)
Great salary, all the tools you'd need to do your job are provided, multi-cultural workforce. great perks and benefits.
Shark tank atmosphere, no knowledge sharing, aggressive colleagues, no comms from mgmt, no social side, location wasn't great. Lot of firings.
Advice to Management
Respect the staff
The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Pocket Kings (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in April 2011.
The interview took about 5 hours, with 5 different people.
At the beginning there was a small presentation of the company and then we got the the actual talk.
Everybody asked his own questions, starting from very technical details to career history, etc.
Overall everybody was very nice, highly skilled and knowledgeable. Very good behaviour, very nice feedback. All the people I saw had a copy of my CV in front of them and were constantly taking notes on it.
All underlined that the company has high demands from its employees, but the rewards are high.
During the interview I was asked what's my target salary range. Because I was offered lower than I've asked, I was able to negotiate through the recruitment agency to get the minimum I've required.
I'd tell anyone that gets an offer from them to ask for what they really think you're worth, because PK can afford it, and if they think you're worth it - then you'll get you number.
