I have been working at Sonicbids full-time (Less than a year)
Being new to the company, I've had the luxury to come onboard well after there was a change in management, company culture, and structure--all positive things. Sonicbids and the larger company (Backstage) are clearly investing in their people by creating a positive work environment. This in turn is fueling the team to be motivated to grow the business.
Great work-life balance, realistic workload (though certainly not bored!), incredibly driven and understanding GM that looks out for his team and cares about consistently improving the product and user experience.
Plenty of team outings and gatherings, healthy snacks, delish coffee and bevs provided.
Company provides all resources and support needed to successfully do your job + are clearly invested in longterm career growth. Established company with a startup mentality allows everyone on the team to have independence to do their jobs, but have a voice to evoke change and contribute creative ideas.
Open work space can be challenging (at any company), but considering, this is the most respectful and quiet open office space I've worked in.
Advice to Management
Keep on keepin' on. Continue to hire hardworking, passionate, smart, funny people and your business will continue to grow.
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sonicbids (Boston, MA) in January 2016.
Recruiter reached out beginning of first week in new year, from an application submitted first week in Dec. Asked for my availability and stated that one day would be best so I informed of my availability that particular day. Scheduled a phone screen with the head of the department and received a confirmation calendar invite with the department head included - so far so good. Come to day of phone screen, wait 5-10 mins and no call or email. I emailed both recipients on the invite - recruiter and department head, to see if the call was still occurring that day. No response and no call. Pretty rude and bad start to interview process for a potential candidate. I don't think I will be moving forward with a reschedule.
