    I worked at Research Now full-time

    Pros

    On the tech side, If you are a rock star they will pay you well, they will only take the best and have a west coast mentality of running a tech organization where what matters is how fast you are delivering

    On the biz side, lots of people passionate about the work they are doing.

    Cons

    There's not really a culture of developing people's careers, if you are good, they will give you just more work. Even if you are good but if they think you should deliver more you are dispensable and it showed at the time of lay offs.

    Working from home is not an option.

    Very little emotional intelligence by some of the leadership team. I found the environment set up in tech to be lacking psychological safety and at the mercy of the whims of the head of technology.

    In less than a year they had three mass lay offs. While is a known play when a new leader comes on board that has to shaken the boat to show the owners/board that big changes are happening and buy 2-3 years for showing results, lots of good people with deep knowledge has been walked out the door and everyone else has to figure out how things work.

    Senior Back End Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Plano, TX
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Research Now (Plano, TX) in July 2017.

    Interview

    An internal recruiter contacted me via LinkedIn. We had a phone screen then had casual meeting with the VP of Engineering off-site. A week later went on-site for a 4 hour interview that included two hour long technical interviews (coding, design), an hour with another VP and an hour with the recruiter that involved a tour and explanation of each department, benefits etc.

    The coding interview involved a simple array reversal question on a white board with a couple of follow up questions. They also asked about using templates in C++. There was another question about finding the depth of a tree. The interviewer left the room with "good luck!" as the parting words.

    The design interview with two other interviewers asked to design a library system with the two user stories to fulfill being "search for a book" and "checkout a book".

    The hour long meeting with the second VP was a casual discussion about my past, goals and future as well as a history of the company and where they were going.

    Despite hitting it off with both VPs and after what I felt were successful technical interviews I received a phone call the next week that there would be no offer coming my way.

    My technical background and experience was in C/C++ and they are a Java shop. I haven't written code in the past year in my current position. I thought they would see past this and value my quick learning, critical thinking and team skills while giving me the opportunity to learn on the job, however they were looking for someone who could sling code on day 1.
