        They have finally started to move into the modern age by providing parental leave and hybrid work.


        Everything is an emergency with competing priorities. There is little to no assistance with absolutely anything. Your workload grows each day, the company is growing at such a rapid pace that it can't be sustained and yet they don't want to hire any additional people to assist. The interview process takes up to four months, which is ridiculous, yet they say that they can't find talent. Severely underpaid for the amount of work you end up doing at all hours of the day, no respect for personal lives, and it's obvious by the turnover rate. They keep hiring consultants and bringing on or promoting high-level employees to even higher-level positions, most of which are rehired from years ago that worked at the company.

      Senior Financial Analyst

      I went through the final round of interview last Thursday with the CFO. It seemed to have went well, she said she'll talk to me soon. I haven't heard back yet. When is an appropriate time to follow up. And should I email the recruiter or the hiring manager?


      Customer Service Representative CSR

      I had an interview this afternoon for a customer service position in a call center. The ad was very vague to begin with and at the end of it I felt like I really didn't know anything more about the job. When I asked about the starting pay, which was not published in the ad, they looked incredulous (they were doing on-the-spot hiring today) and then asked me "What's your range?" And only responded with "I think we could meet that." And still never gave me a straight answer. Is this a red flag?

      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?
