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

Pros

Interview process is super fast!! Talked to recruiter over phone couple of times.. He quickly scheduled a phone screening with hiring manager and with the architect on the following day.. Called for an on-site in the following week!! Got the final offer in 2 days .. Negotiated on the same day and final offer letter on the next day.

Everything happened in less than 3 weeks (No exaggerations). The Recruiter (Ronny Greer) was super fast in going through the process. No old school email exchanges. Directly call and text ! Also, Have not met a recruiter before who knows technical stuff required for the position in such details (and not just the names ;) )

Company has a bunch of products which help people to retire with better financial position. To me it is important to work for a initiative to help people in some way through my work. Company has great past and promising roadmap ahead. I am really excited and eager to join :)

Cons

Cant find any at this point and hope I dont find any :)

Advice to Management

None at this point.

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

    Pros

    - Nice office environment
    - People are generally nice and friendly
    - Salary for product marketing seems competitive
    - Flexibility to work from home (occasionally) when needed
    - Generous PTO in first year and building the longer you stay
    - For some teams, getting money to run programs is easy

    Cons

    - Upper level leadership gets side-tracked easily
    - Management is always looking for the "silver bullet" and is uninterested in anything else
    - in 2014, there's a complete lack of focus and total chaos in product development

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the whiplash.
