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

    Pros

    littleBits is a company on a mission. We want to help more kids -- and especially girls -- to get involved in STEAM so that they can be better prepared for the future of work. Whereas many companies talk about being mission-oriented, littleBits is ACTUALLY taking steps to make our mission a reality. It is so refreshing to go to work everyday with a team of dedicated, proactive, and smart people who are working together to accomplish some pretty significant goals. For the first time in my career, I really feel like I'm making a difference.

    Cons

    littleBits is a startup, and that comes with some of the typical issues associated with a startup environment -- lots of stuff to accomplish and not a lot of time/resources to do it. However, I think that management is aware of these constraints and works hard to empower employees to make a significant impact.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at littleBits.

    Interview

    I went through 3 casual phone/video conversations. Super friendly and approachable designers who are passionate about their work! They are very pro-teamwork and seem like nice individuals to work with. The position was canceled soon due to shifting of resources/management after I interviewed so I did not get an offer.
