    Positive Outlook

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

    Pros

    -Really smart team that values collaboration, but also everyone's unique expertise
    -Product team is focused on learning and failing, experimenting with process as well as features. Takes a holistic approach to product development usage trends, A/B testing, user research, competitive/market trends, and long term strategy.
    -Lots of opportunities to have your voice heard and influence the way things are done
    -Great people. Healthy debate is part of the culture, but it's all respectful and people are invested in cultivating great working relationships
    -Management is genuinely invested in your happiness and growth
    -Values diversity and inclusion. There are concerted efforts for recruiting and retention of diverse candidates, and several groups including Women at Microsoft and Blacks at Microsoft put on great events
    -Values forming relationships in the community. We have outreach and partnerships with many different non-profits in mid-market and the Tenderloin, with lots of opportunity to get involved
    -Ability to learn from Microsoft and access resources and opportunities, without being embedded in the Microsoft culture. Yammer still maintains a lot of independence
    -Relaxed working hours. Flexible and reasonable.

    Cons

    Not many I can think of. Experience on the product team has been great.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in people. People are happy when they're growing.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    After 1 month of being passed around to different unresponsive recruiters and hiring managers, I was finally given the take home challenge. The challenge contained three generic "write a function that does X" type questions. I finished the challenge in time and double checked that it met all the requirements. Shortly afterwards I received an email saying I was rejected and would not be able to receive feedback on my challenge.

    Overall the entire process was uncoordinated, unprofessional, and (in my biased opinion) led to the wrong conclusion.
