        What is left of the company culture from the pre-SPAC days is wonderful, but there's less of it every day.


        Since the company went public, we've been in a downward spiral in terms of outlook, morale, and culture. I used to feel like this company cared about my happiness and went out of its way to look out for me. Now it's just a job. It's not the end of the world -- there are many worse jobs out there. But it's no longer a five star place to work.

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)


      Software Engineer

      I did my initial interview with a “better established” startup and they said the interview process is 5 interviews. 3 technical then 1 interview with the CEO then another technical interview. Idk about you but that seems like a lot of interviews and they said they want to do it as fast as possible in a short time span. Is this a normal amount of interviews? Is this a red flag? For a full stack software position 4-5 years exp how much salary should be the norm in a hcol area?


      Business Analyst

      Is it unprofessional to attend a Zoom interview from within your car? I am currently employed and just landed an interview for tomorrow. It is a virtual interview over Zoom. Should I try to find somewhere besides my car for the interview? I don't know that I could but wanted to get yalls thoughts on this.


      Public Relations Account Supervisor

      Has talent acquisition ever called you after a final interview to inform you that you DIDN’T receive the position?
