    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at WP Engine full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Strong culture of happiness and camaraderie that I have felt since starting 3 years ago. Food provided most weekdays. Open culture from the top down, CEO knows almost everyone by name and all execs/vps/managers are super personable. Snacks, coffee, hot chocolate, espresso available 24/7. Decent commuter benefits or downtown parking option. New benefit in 2020 - 401k matching helps set me up for success even after moving on. Great company, would work here again.

    Cons

    Not enough parking at building. New employees who do not elect commuter benefit receive parking in a garage in another building and need to walk. It's a nice walk though... if you like walking.

    Contracts Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I received an email on a Friday evening from HR immediately followed by a phone call so she could schedule our phone interview . We set the interview for the following Tuesday. After waiting 15 minutes for a call I emailed the recruiter and asked if she was planning to call me. Still nothing. This woman called me on Thursday and said "oh I forgot we were scheduled for an interview. I don't know what happened. " She then asked if I had time on Friday (today) and I said yes at 2pm EST, 1pm CST. Would you believe she failed to call again. So flighty and unprofessional. If HR is this unorganized and unprofessional then that says a lot about the rest of the company.
