    I have been working at WP Engine full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've worked with all shapes and sizes of organizations, from Fortune 10 to small non-profits. WPEngine is the only environment I've worked in that has truly put the walk to the talk when it comes to living the corporate values. Honesty and integrity are valued and encouraged, as are just simply being human and caring for one another. Failing fast and learning from mistakes are encouraged. If you want to do the right thing, work to better yourself and your co-workers and enjoy waking up in the morning to come to work, WPEngine is a great place to be. The work is challenging and there are plenty of opportunities to improve from the status quo.

    Cons

    The rate at which WPEngine is hiring and the growth they are seeking is fast. The goals are lofty but within reason. If you're eager to engage and help propel the business forward you will enjoy it. If you just want to punch a clock, you won't be contributing to helping developing yourself and your team, and this wouldn't be the place for you. If you aren't an inclusively-minded person, you also probably won't enjoy it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring positive can-do people to keep the culture alive.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at WP Engine (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    The process is all about the culture fit, and the willingness to be coachable, and get better. Phone interview, on-site interview, meet the team, walk through the office. Great experience, learned more than expected from the company.
