    Pros

    - Supervisors do care about your performance and your well being. Multiple monthly reviews on your performance to help you better the areas you need help in, and praising you for your good work.
    - Lots and lots of benefits for doing a good job based on metrics, such as a paid day off, or a bonus on your next paycheck.
    - A variety of free healthy and not-so-healthy snacks in the break room every day.
    - Casual dress environment if you care to do so.
    - They like to hire within first as long as you have the skills and promise to be in whatever position you're looking to apply for when it is open.

    Cons

    There are no real cons as there is always going to be something that you don't like with any job. However, the cons at Stamps.com aren't that significant to even be listed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! I always like I was on the same level when talking with any manager because you were all so personal.

    Associate Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Stamps.com (Los Angeles, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online. Got an email from some employee who never bothered to introduce himself. But the email included an assignment asking me to develop a product & pick top 5 features & why I would pick them. No context given. No explaining or guidance given. So, I started with assumptions I was going to make before I attempt to answer the assignment.
    I confirmed that my approach was correct with some of the Sr Product Managers that I work with on daily basis. With confidence, I submitted the answer.
    No response for a week. I followed up asking for an update, I got an auto-reply with rejection.
    Annoying attitude, to say the least!
