    I worked at YA full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are some good people working there.
    Senior leadership is very transparent about financials.
    Business outlook is going from "bleak" to "okay".

    Cons

    CEO can be a hot-head.
    CFO can be a hot-head.
    VPs are highly political.
    The company is bank owned.
    They're betting the company on a giant software re-write.

    Advice to Management

    I wish you luck. For the sake of all of the good people working at YA, I hope that you succeed.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at YA in April 2016.

    Interview

    Contacted by recruiter for company. After she cancelled the first go around, on the day we both agreed that would work for both of us, she called a half hour before the appointed time (my phone was silenced because I was at my current job), left a passive aggressive message about my "interest" in the position. When I returned her call, at our agreed upon time, it went to voicemail. I emailed her, offering to arrange another time. Haven't heard anything back.
