I have been working at XPRIZE full-time
I have rarely had the pleasure of working with such HUMAN colleagues. I am a relatively new employee, but many of us are, however, this doesn't change the fact that I have been met with nothing but help, support, and a willingness to listen that I haven't found elsewhere. Is it busy? Absolutely. Was I thrown immediately into the fire? Basically. Is there any other way than to jump in with two feet? Not in my world.
Still looking for the real downsides. From what I can see, the challenges here are the same as in many non-profits: restricted access to funds, more work than there are bodies, and politics around who gets access to funding. Sounds like almost every company everywhere.
Advice to Management
Keep up the good work. Creating an inclusive environment and instigating cultural change is difficult. Continue down the path of implementing changes after the engagement survey. RESPOND TO THE GLASSDOOR COMMENTS.
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at XPRIZE (Culver City, CA) in February 2014.
The interview process took almost two months from start to finish but the individuals that interviewed me were great, especially the hiring director. I had two phone interviews and a half day of in person interviews with 5 different interviewers.
