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

    Pros

    Engineers are treated with as much respect as earn. If you know your stuff, they will give you all the leeway in the world.

    Cons

    -With a company that's so large and international, communication is hard.
    -Politics can also be a difficult problem.

    Advice to Management

    -Make the channels of communication more obvious
    -Bring the same level of respect you give to engineers to the other departments

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Wayfair.

    Interview

    They initially called just to ask about my background, previous projects, why I applied to Wayfair, and other general phone screen questions. The following technical interview had a lot of general knowledge questions, followed by a SQL query and a couple coding questions. Both interviewers were very nice and helpful throughout the process.
