I worked at ReadyTalk full-time (More than 3 years)
Great team of people, lots of laughter, trust in employees, kegs, comfortable work environment, schedule flexibility. Good benefits.
Growth was hard to make happen. Easy to get funneled into one specialty. Really have to work hard for mentorship opportunities. That said, crossfunctional teams are constantly being formed. Salary is below market average.
Advice to Management
Don't get acquired. Pay at least market salary standards.
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at ReadyTalk (Denver, CO) in July 2015.
Before being considers for an interview, applicants are required to answer a lengthy questionnaire asking for likes and dislikes about broad technologies categories (Java, C++, Windows, Apple, and while they don't ask directly, they indirectly ask what you spend your free time doing.
From the process and response from the company, they are looking for total technology nerds. If you don't spend your free time writing code from an open-source project, they consider that a "red flag" and eliminate you from consideration. They look for people for whom the command line is the primary form of "social" interaction. The well-rounded need not apply.
The job description stated: "Willing to work off-hours", read: Always working after hours - that's the real "red flag". Apparently the trend towards work-life balance is lost on this company. Don't waste your time on the questionnaire unless going home to write more code and play video games is the highlight of your day.
