    I worked at Prosper.com full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people, culture, and benefits. Prosper is what you make of it; there's a ton of opportunity for those willing to put in the work. Also, great work/life balance.

    Cons

    Turnover has been a killer. Lots of one-offs, undocumented processes, and a ton of technical debt as a result. Every year performance reviews seem to push people out.

    Advice to Management

    Retaining bad employees inspires the good ones to leave.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Prosper.com in September 2015.

    Interview

    This was for full-stack developer position. The first round was pretty good. The interviewer asked relevant questions related dynamic programming, ruby, middleware. He was respectful and answered any questions I had. The second round interview was with a senior software engineer who was rude when I was able to answer few questions.

    Interview Questions

    • mostly basic questions related to oop, middleware, mvc architecture   Answer Question
