    Pros

    Speck is a very unique company to work at.
    - Highly collaborative
    - Very quick paced, successive development and launch cycles - great to keep you on your toes and keep things interesting
    - Company values transparency and open/honest communication from the top down.
    - Pride of product, everything Speck sells is thought through.
    - The company embraces change and is open to improvements, new ideas, etc
    - Really great, smart and kind people in every department
    - Speck has grown over the years, but it still has plenty of upside opportunity
    - The list goes on and would recommend if there is an open position apply to check it out yourself

    Cons

    Not to many to list:
    - Very quick paced, successive development and launch cycle, everyone needs to carry their weight,
    - Each department is run very lean with no room for slackers, so not a good place if you're looking to coast.
    - Like any company, work/life balance can get skewed during peak season (it's part of the nature of the biz).

    Advice to Management

    Keep the communication going and level of transparency high. It goes a very long way to helping everyone feel included, up to date, aligned and committed.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Speck (San Mateo, CA).

    Interview

    Phone call interview and in person interview with possibility of second in person interview if progressing through the process. My personal experience was that the recruiter was very friendly and kept me updated throughout the process but actually visiting the Speck office and interviewing with the various managers was cause for concern. My in person interview was very informative. Speck was going through a lot of changes at the time and it was clear at the office. The front office that greeted you was inundated with a mess of packages. Nearly everyone who interviewed me had less than a year at Speck with the exception of one person who had been there for over a year. They were very transparent about the challenges they currently face and asked questions in regards to how the person who got this position would handle it. After being kept in the loop for over a month I was informed that they ended up proceeding with someone else. Overall with my whole experience it didn't seem like a stable place to be at.
