    I have been working at ThousandEyes full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    ThousandEyes has been the best carrier move I have made. The technology is exciting, and fills a huge gap in the market. The day-to-day work is enjoyable and fulfilling. The entire team is amazing, and my immediate team is a collection of intelligent and fun individuals that make going to work everyday a pleasant and fun experience. I really cannot say enough about how positive my experience has been. Normally when I join a company, one year in I get bored and start looking for my next op, that has not been the case here, and that has never happened before. The benefits are great, salary is competitive, and rewards/company events keep things interesting.

    Cons

    There really are not any cons I can think of. ThousandEyes as a whole has met my needs as an employee. From a business perspective, the management team has a clear vision as to where they want to go and they are making progress in that direction.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. We are all working to accomplish the same goal, and fully support the vision.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ThousandEyes (San Francisco, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    This review is long overdue. I interviewed with ThousandEyes back in June, 2017. It started with their recruiter reaching out to me and scheduling an introductory call after I informed him that I was interested. During the call, he gave me some info about the company and their product and sent me a quick online programming problem that didn’t take more than 15 minutes to complete. They reviewed my solution within a couple of days and informed that they were going to move forward to another take-home coding problem. This one was a Java/Spring problem that took about 7 hours to finish. I personally think take-home projects are very effective in gauging the skills/experiences of a candidate comparing to onsite 5 hour interviews. After I submitted my solution, again they evaluated it promptly and got back to me. 

    As the next step, they scheduled an onsite interview. I need to note that they were very accommodating with regards to my schedule. 

    Once there, the recruiter gave me a tour of their office and then guided me to a conference room for the interview. I was interviewed by three people, two engineers and their engineering VP. All of them were friendly. The engineers covered algorithm and data structure problems and I went over the take-home project with the engineering VP. Although the questions weren’t easy, they were all very fair and there was no “coding tricks” required to solve them. They started with easier questions and moved to more difficult questions as the interview went on. 

    After a couple days, the recruiter contacted me to let me know that my interview went well and they were proceeding with an offer. He also asked me to have a quick phone call with their CTO as the last step before the offer was extended. During the phone call, their CTO just covered some general questions regarding my work experience. 

    After the offer was delivered to me, they gave me about a week to make my decision. Unfortunately, I ended up rejecting the offer due to a competing offer, but I think this was one of the best interview experiences I’ve had in my career.
