I worked at Private Client Resources full-time (More than a year)
-Free lunch on Fridays
-Access to management and transparency
-Great diversity in thought, experiential and cultural background (probably one of the best assets at a growing company like this and often overlooked in some reviews. People from Poland, Russia, Nigeria, Greece, etc. Very very cool to see and hear these people!)
-CEO at the time was hard working and likeable, bright man who often was misinterpreted because his level of seriousness, but felt that he grew on people in the end.
-Manual work that hopefully becomes automated
-More to progress in terms of back end technology and stay ahead of the game
-Some clickiness within teams and a proclivity toward negativity in terms of how people come in (too much gossip amongst teams which creates bad energy). As with any job, the beginning work can be monotonous, but ultimately, this *IS* a great stepping stone and a good opportunity to see the long hours and sometimes, monotonous, work that is required in earlier stage startups
Advice to Management
The Senior Management is skillful and has great ideas, but would be great to have more insight from employees and maybe even more opportunities at mentorships to create a grow-your-own sort of model and retain some good potential and hard working people.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Private Client Resources (Wilton, CT) in January 2017.
I went through a recruiter. First 2 Rounds of phone interviews were with the recruiter (includes discussing what the job is, and my technical background where I explained that I am not a software developer, I am a front end web developer). 2 Rounds of phone interviews - 1st with CTO to discuss company and why I am looking to make the switch, 2nd with one of their Senior Developers to discuss high level overview of my technical background. 5th Round was an in person interview with 2 of their senior developers to discuss in depth my technical background and knowledge (also included a technical test). 6th Round was the final in-person interview with the CTO.
