    I have been working at Veeva Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Free lunch
    - Unlimited PTO
    - Extremely good stock options (changed this year)
    - Competitive pay
    - 2% of your income in education
    - Fitness reimbursement
    - Work/life balance
    - Can switch teams, products, or job titles at any time
    - Huge mix of junior, mid level, and senior engineers.
    - Engineers from atypical backgrounds (passionate / motivated).
    - Week break at the end of the year.
    - CEO / Upper management seem to know their stuff.

    For me personally on my team (might apply to others):

    - Insanely good manager, he purposely wants us to improve our skills for our future.
    - Manager will be the face of problems that you make.
    - Everyone on my team is extremely nice, talented, and fit together well.
    - Occasional events with the team.
    - Relaxed work sechedules ("9-5" but flexible).

    I'm curious if other reviews end up with bad teams.

    Cons

    - Learning all the tech, software, terminology, products is overwhelming initially.
    - The core software which creates nearly all products is an insanely huge code base.
    - Huge code base is annoying to develop in due to size, slowness, and VM that's required.
    - Software growing pains (see last two points). The company has grown very fast and still looks to add thousands of employees in the next few years.
    - Some teams aren't as friendly.
    - Some teams are overwhelmed (dev ops seem to need a lot more people).
    - Lunch is sometimes meh.

    Advice to Management

    Keep promoting strengths of individuals, hire non-traditional CS backgrounds, it creates a good culture.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Veeva Systems.

    Interview

    Lots of one on one interviews via phone and skype, candidate exercise to assess critical thinking and problem solving skills. There isn't a lot of pressure during the interviews, the real challenge is reserved for the exercise. The interviews are meant to feel you out and ensure you're a fit for their environment.

    Interview Questions

    • Be ready to answer some questions about your exercise you hadn't considered.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiations, solid offer.
