    I have been working at Reverb full-time

    Pros

    Everyone here loves music and most of the employees are incredibly talented musicians which helps to both define and describe the culture. Our CEO is fully transparent with his the employees about all facets of the organization. He also has no issues getting his hands dirty, helping solve problems and just being a good person. The employees are dedicated and invested in the business and management works hard to give them the tools they need to succeed. No two ways about it, this is a great place.

    Cons

    We have ambitious goals and a long way to go, but that's ok.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.

    Android Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Reverb (Chicago, IL) in September 2016.

    Interview

    HR Phone Screen, Phone tech screen, In person with a pair of pair programming exercises and meetings with management... And then a low ball offer.

    Really it was a gigantic waste of time, unless you're willing to work for $15 to $20K less than market value, with the possibility of a 10% bonus or some stock options... Not to mention no health coverage for 60 days... No thanks. Money isn't everything, but there is nothing special about this place that would drive a quality mobile engineer to give them a discount, unless they're unemployed.

    They are located on the near north side (Roscoe Village/Lakeview area). This is super inconvenient for commuting (the brown line stops nearby, but that stop is not on the express schedules), and way too expensive to live on what they pay. They should seriously consider moving to the suburbs or somewhere that can justify the lackluster salaries.

    My advice, if you want real talent, offer them real money. Don't waste their time asking them "what is your expected salary range" and then continue on with the process knowing you can't reach it...

    I guess there is a reason the job has been on their website since early April...
