    Where do I start.
    • I think I have repetitive stress syndrome from raising and lowering my Electric Standing Desk. No-one ever offered to assist me.
    • People got too good at PlayStation, I spend most of my lunch hours being destroyed at FIFA, I think some of them purchased the game to play at home for this sole purpose. Scum. My confidence is at an all-time low.
    • This wonderful new office has made me quite cocky when I tell people where I work. It's not a version of me that I like.
    • The convenient central location of the office comes at a cost. I look like a daddy long legs on a bicycle during my commute.
    • There are at least 4 coffee shops within a 100 metre radius of the office. I hate coffee.
    • Everyone is really helpful, friendly and welcoming here. SO creepy.
    • There are showers in the bathrooms. Bring your own towel though cos I had to drip dry twice, wasted 3 minutes there.
    • Regular and healthy snacks provided???? So it's guilt or obesity? I don't appreciate mind games.
    • Each employee's birthday is celebrated with gifts and food. I want to feel this special every day. This is not the case.
    • Frequent team building activities. My teammates in the escape rooms challenge were less than helpful.
    • A guy from Tech support told me to shut up once (clearly doesn't appreciate the BANTS). I think he's leaving now
    • Someone tried to learn an instrument in the office once. They've gone now.
    • Someone asked for a nap room once. They've gone now.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Tenable (New York, NY) in March 2017.


    I was VERY HAPPY with the service that I was given by the company, especially with Bethany Perlman, who was very helpful and accomodating through each stage of the interview process. The interview process moved quickly as well. After I applied, I got an email within two days to schedule a phone interview with her. After that, I had a online coding test through hackerrank to complete. Within two days of that I received an invite to a google hangout interview with two members of the team. That happened the following Tuesday and it seemed to go well and was a really awesome experience. I received a rejection email two days after the google hangout interview but was extremely happy with the recruitment process at tenable and really learned a lot!
