      Very cool working environment, technology and people. Overall layback 9/80 schedule providing excellent work life balance.


      This company has very good talent dedicating decades of their life working there. But upper management lacks focus and direction.

        Great work life balance with a very open schedule (great for achievers, bad for most). Good pay and good benefits. Good innovation in some groups.


        No accountability on results (written defined goals are not even mandatory...) and long projects timelines which led some people to become very complacent as they know there is very little risk of being fired and they can drag things much longer than it should. Too many decision makers with contradictory agendas at upper management level. Quite a bit of politics. Reward is based more on team results than personal results which is wrong for achievers as they being dragged down (back to the lack of personal accountability).

      Interview Tips

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



      I finished third round of interviews but realized there’s an experience that isn’t on my resume (since it’s not directly related to the jobs I’m applying for) nor did I mention it in the interview process, but it would actually be great for me to leverage and demonstrates a relevant skill for the role. Is it worth emailing and dropping a quick note about it, or should I leave it?

      I have a supply chain & inventory manager interview coming up for a museum. Can anyone provide me some insight on what questions I should be prepared for? What key points to highlight during my interview? Any tips and advice is appreciated!



      I finished final round interview. Should I send a thank you letter to everyone or only to people where I have something interesting to add on. I interviewed with the hiring manager twice already and sent thank you emails. He never responds, should I even bother to send him one more since we talked again in the final round? HR said I wouldn’t hear back until late next week earliest. It sounds like they still have to wrap up final rounds with other people. I don’t want them to forget me.
