    I have been working at ReadyTech full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I work with a chill group of people. It is not the high stress environment that I experienced at other places. It's nice to come in and focus on the work itself instead of keeping up with a lot of meetings and other busy work that seems like is always part of working at the bigger companies.

    There are other reasons I like it here, the product is interesting...the pay/benefits are decent. The commute and the lunch places :) But the work environment for me is a big deal and it suits me here. It is a nice mix of people that are friendly and relaxed but also focused.

    Cons

    Management is pretty direct/blunt. It can be intimidating if you're not used to it. But over time I've learned to appreciate the directness, and be more direct myself. It is respected and not taken personally.

    Advice to Management

    More company updates from managers and president. Like in blog posts or call in meetings? I personally am interested to know more about what's going on, even if it doesn't apply directly to me.

    UX Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oakland, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at ReadyTech (Oakland, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Applied to the Oakland office and was then reached out by an HR person for a phone interview. Our conversation was easy and formulaic. It was obvious she pulled a few questions off the internet, but that's fine.

    They later on decided I was fit for an in person interview. Upon going in, I was surprised that I was only meeting with 2 people, which was a nice change of pace from the typical panel day-long interviews with 6-8 people. The folks I interviewed with were friendly, so no real complaints there. Never asked for a portfolio review, nor asked much questions about my design background.

    My only comment to the interviewers is act more interested in the person you're talking to. Some things that stood out; Yes, you mentioned that you were a 13+ year old company. Yes, you mentioned that you weren't a start-up, so don't expect many of those start-up perks. And yes, you also mentioned your own growth was dependent on someone else leaving. Not really good selling points if you're trying to hire talent. Although, to I appreciate the honesty...

    Ended up not getting the position because they ended up going with another candidate in Amsterdam, where the other main designers are located, go figure...
