Great people, flexible working hours, free access to gym, absolutely amazing Redwood Shores’ location. Free breakfast on Monday and free beer on Friday. All Hands’ Meetings are informative and seem to be a good tradition.
The morale after layoffs was pretty bad, but it’s getting better. Processes are a little bit chaotic and include a lot of paperwork, sometimes it takes more time to do the job than it should.
Advice to Management
I’d advise to improve processes and to use more cutting edge tools to expedite paperwork and increase efficiency.
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at iPass (San Mateo, CA) in September 2015.
The interview was arranged by a staffing agency.It was an onsite in-person technical interview.There were one android developer,one iOS developer and one Director Engineering.I answered almost all the questions correctly except the Reader-Writer problem of multi-threading.The director asked me two puzzles,both i answered correctly.The director gave feedback to the staffing agency that i was most outstanding candidate,but even though after 3 weeks they told the staffing agency that i was not selected for the position.The interviewers,specially the android developer got to know many things from me,which he did not know or even heard of.I think these days many companies are simply conducting interviews just to gather more knowledge from other candidates or the technologies which are getting used in other companies.Half of the day was just a waste for me for this interview.
