    I have been working at U.S. News & World Report full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    U.S. News is a fantastic company with a superb working environment. There is a diverse tech stack with many opportunities to get exposed to a number of various technologies on a daily basis. The management at all levels in the Technology department is fresh and motivated, and remains in touch with the regular aspects of development and architecture. Your work regularly sees production, and there is the ideal balance of structure commonly seen in larger companies combined with the freedoms allowed from smaller companies in your work. Other developers are generally very well-rounded and a pleasure to work with. There is an emphasis on career development, with weekly knowledge exchanges, opportunities for training, and room for growth. All in all, I would highly recommend working at U.S. News.

    Cons

    Commuting to Georgetown may occasionally be difficult depending on your location.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at U.S. News & World Report.

    Interview

    I applied online after seeing a job posting. I was then contacted by HR for a 1 hour phone screening where we discussed my background and interest in the position. The questions were not technical at this point just more about my experience. I was then contacted to do an assignment testing my technical skills. After the team reviewed that, there was a second phone interview with the head of my department where we talked more in depth about the position and also about my experience on a more technical level. Then I was brought in for a longer (~3hour) in-person interview with the whole team. They asked me both general and technical questions and we discussed actual things they were currently addressing in their work.
