I worked at Usablenet full-time (Less than a year)
It was a great startup company to work for back then. Jason Taylor was there and Founder, Paolo Brajnik who was a sick drummer and painter who loved his Pentium M processors. LOL. He was pretty funny! We basically worked in the front of their apartment at the time, in Soho! Jason and Paolo both lived in the back section of the office. Hahaha! Old school. Great group back then and we'd watch Netflix in the livingroom that was just behind us. Note: The last year available was 2013 but I worked there 11 years before that, when we were a startup company.
We were TINY back then and if you had an idea, everyone listened and would run with it. Sounds like things have changed since then. Sorry to hear of so many bad experiences. You should have been there when it was a startup! Oh yeah, we had to communicate with the office in Italy which was frustrating to say the least. LOL!
Advice to Management
Sounds like it's all over the place, sorry to hear about that. Hopefully they'll listen to everyone's comments on Glassdoor.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Usablenet (New York, NY).
Four stages. Phone interview, then in-person with several managers. Then in-person with Director of Project Management, then skype with Head of Delivery. Questions about your PM process, preferred process/framework for project management, project you're most proud of, etc.
