    Open Questions: Debbie Madden on Why Companies Should Hire More Women

    Q. You start your book, "Hire Women," with an anecdote about getting sent compensation information for 2,000 people at the company where you worked, and finding out that you were being paid 30 percent less than your lowest paid male peer. In that moment, were you shocked or did you kind of already know?

    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Stride Consulting (New York, NY) in February 2018.


    Basically required a take home code test in the language of your choice - fairly straight forward and possibly even fun! After that, there was a full day onsite which included pairing, meeting the team, and a 1 on 1. Also, all of which was quite relaxed and enjoyable.
