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

    Pros

    The whole program will give you a thorough understanding of mobile development while paying you a full developer salary. Not many opportunities like that exist in this world. As long as you pay attention and apply yourself, you can confidently get through this program and get placed onto a team after the 3 months.
    The management is great and understanding as well as open to feedback throughout the entire process so that the experience can be improved for future Labs classes.
    Amazing experience.
    Boston is great.

    Cons

    The full stack labs program is much larger so if you're looking to meet people in a new city (socially), it's much easier to do there. The mobile labs classes tend to be smaller.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keepin on.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Wayfair (Boston, MA) in April 2011.

    Interview

    The interview took place in a conference given that everyone in the office just had a desk as their work station, including the CEO. It is a very relaxed and easy going environment. The interviewer listened and questioned about career objectives to see if the position will be a good fit. The interviewer clearly thinks highly of the company and is willing to share the current status of how the company is doing. In the end, I was told I was over qualified for the position and it indeed seems like this company attracts mostly young and fresh graduates and they are hiring.
