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

    Pros

    I've worked at Unity for a while now and I still feel the same now as I always have done. The recruitment process was like none I've ever experienced before - my recruiter was amazing, she was truly faultless and then everyone else I met along the way was (and still are) so welcoming, friendly and attentive. As for perks, the company provides more benefits than I know what to do with, honestly, I don't even know where to start there....

    I was incredibly impressed with their response to the recent pandemic; which was to ensure employee's put themselves and their families first - while providing everything necessary to work from home comfortably for the foreseeable future, rather than jumping back into the office as soon as they could. They genuinely care, which is a first in my employment history and quite a rarity in general. I have nothing but good things to say about this company and those who work there. And everyone I talk to about my work, immediately want to work here too.

    Cons

    They're feeders and I don't know how to say no to food.

    Advice to Management

    I will only speak from personal experience with my management, but keep doing what you're doing because you're all incredible and I am proud to be part of your team.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Unity Technologies.

    Interview

    After initially being contacted by a Unity recruiter, there was a series of Zoom calls with various team members and managers, and a coding challenge.

    It was a really positive process - there was plenty of opportunity to ask questions, and prompt feedback after each stage. I was always kept updated with what the next part of the process would be - it was genuinely probably one of the most streamlined and friendly interview processes I've been through.

    Interview Questions
