Mission: Prezi is on a mission to make the world better by improving the way people communicate. How? By wiping out boring presentations. Prezi lets users engage their audiences and share their story in entirely new ways, far outside the confines of traditional slides.
I have been working at Prezi full-time (More than 3 years)
Been here 4+ years (Marketing) and still find the work challenging and rewarding. Great teams to work with. People respect each other and stress levels are low, even when deadlines are hot. They take good care of us, too, with daily meal service, frequent parties, and other amenities. The general sense I have is of positive growth in the right direction.
When I joined, this place was much more "freewheeling." You could fly over to Budapest almost just for fun, as long as you scheduled a meeting or two with your team there. We had these awesome Power Week sessions when the whole company converged in Budapest for several days of interaction, team building, and partying. You could work from virtually anywhere --- no need to come to the office if you didn't have a face-to-face meeting to attend. There's definitely more "accountability" and "expectation" and "giving the right impression" now as the company has grown and investors have gotten involved. Which is not necessarily a bad thing businesswise at all --- just a change in the culture that rubs me the wrong way sometimes. (I'm plenty old enough to manage my own productivity.)
Advice to Management
Keep the real startup vibe alive, say NO to tech-corp assimilation!
The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Prezi.
I applied online and spoke with the recruiter from Budapest. She was extremely helpful and enthusiastic. I then had a technical screen with two engineers, which I received very positive feedback for. I would've continued the interview process, but I had received offers from other companies in locations I preferred much more highly, so I stopped my interview process with Prezi (main reason being that I didn't want to relocate to Budapest). Overall though, everyone was very fun to chat with, and I think if their headquarters were in the US, I likely would've continued pursuing them.
