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

    Pros

    - the amount of transparency is crazy, results in a lot of trust in leadership
    - very engineering-driven culture, over half of the company are engineers
    - some of the best engineers i've worked with - not only impressive technical expertise but also great collaboration and people skills which def isn't seen everywhere
    - managers really try to take care of their reports in the ways they can while giving plenty of autonomy
    - open and positive culture, so many smart and open-minded people who really believe in what we are doing
    - i learned so much about the industry and our efforts after i started and have a lot of confidence in our vision and direction

    This is the first company I cared to write a Glassdoor review for - it's definitely the best company I've worked at.

    Cons

    we have been growing really fast so like all growing companies we need to figure out the changes necessary to support our growth as we go.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Wealthfront.

    Interview

    The onsite interview started with a coding interview on Python on some big data framework. The second part was a case interview where they asked about feature engineering and machine learning basic concepts. The third part was a business case where two alternatives of a plan were proposed and the revenue-cost breakdown was compared.
