I worked at Vevo full-time (More than a year)
Some of the best coworkers. Great energy and fun environment. Honestly one of my favorite companies I've ever worked for and if certain changes are made - I would work for them again.
Poor leadership. This company has so much potential to be something amazing, but the leadership is what is causing this place to be held back. If a couple of leaders were replaced, I would have never left the company.
Advice to Management
Know your strengths and your weaknesses. There are a lot of people here that see the great potential of what Vevo could be, but with poor leadership, good talent will continue to leave.
Fairly standard interview with a tech screen over a video session while doing an algorithm question. I was asked to come on site and got to virtually meet the CTO who I think would be amazing to work under. Unfortunately I had the worst interview experience in one of my on-site rounds. The interviewer was extremely condescending and it was the only time I ever considered walking out of an interview. The interviewer's question had 5 parts to it and if you didn't know how to solve the first part, you would not get the other 4. He refused to move on if you answered it incorrectly unless you were silent for 3 minutes. Even after saying I didn't know the answer, he asked me to guess. Whenever I guessed he went out of his way to make me feel as if I was dumb for even suggesting that particular guess.
I definitely will never be applying to VEVO and telling others about my experience.
