    Pros

    You will learn more skills than you thought possible - from client relationship management, to analytics, inner-workings of ESPs and working through contract retention situations. If you're able to put in long hours, work really hard, and continue to learn as you go, you'll do well. It also helps if you love marketing, branding, and the ever-growing world of ecommerce.

    Cons

    Not suited for all personalities. Need to want to get ahead, constantly vouch for yourself to get recognition, getting promoted / getting a raise is no easy feat and requires a lot of persistence. It's very easy to mess up, so most workers feel stressed and over-worked.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BounceX (New York, NY (US)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview consisted of a recruiter phone screen, a phone screen with an engineer, and then two separate in person interviews. I enjoyed my conversations across the entire interview process and was excited to get an offer. I was disappointed when I found out it was an exploding offer. I received the offer at around 8 PM on a Wednesday, and the offer expired at 11:59 PM on Friday. This is not enough time to make a decision, and companies should really stop doing this. The offer I received was a bit below market rate for a 4+ year experienced engineer, and less than I am currently making. I sent the following email at 8:30 AM the next day (Thursday):

    Hey,

    I’m very excited to get this offer! I’ve had such a great interview experience with you guys. There are few things I’d like to discuss:

    It was probably just part of the form offer letter, but I’m not prepared to make a decision in 48 hours. I mentioned I’d love to come in next week and meet with the rest of the team. I want to make sure that I can be successful and work well with the whole team from day one. Additionally, I would really appreciate the opportunity to speak with you (or someone else) about the company’s finances. As a member of the team, it’s really important to me that I understand the company’s future growth and revenue strategies. After those discussions, I feel I’ll be better prepared to speak with my family and make a decision.

    I still think we’re off on compensation. This offer would be a decrease in compensation for me relative to what I’m earning at [CURRENT POSITION]. I don’t think we’re very far apart, but it’s important to me that I’m paid fairly.

    I’d also like to learn more about career progression. I think you have me as a “Software Engineer”. Is that the Junior level? How does one move up to the next level, and how do you typically help your employees plan for growing their careers at BounceX? I want to make sure BounceX is a place I can thrive at for many years.

    I’ll set up time to come in next week to meet with the team. I hope you can join for some part of it (I know you’re busy, and I appreciate all the time you’ve dedicated already). If not, let’s jump on a short call. Again, I’m stoked for the offer, and the opportunity at BounceX, and I’m confident I’ll be a great part of the team.

    Best,

    I received a response at 1 PM:

    That makes me really happy to hear.

    I want to give this a thoughtful reply. I am (we're) in the middle of [A PROJECT], so let me wrap that and I'll put together some thoughts this afternoon / evening.

    I did not get a response that afternoon or evening, or all the next day. Finally, at 7 PM the next day, just 5 hours before the offer exploded, I was sent the following:

    Hey, thanks for the patience.

    Today got away from me and shows no signs of relenting, but I wanted to catch up. Do you have some time tomorrow – how about 1:00P? [Note: This is after the offer explodes]

    All my best,

    I could not talk on Saturday, as I had other plans. We finally got in touch Monday at 6 PM. I was told the offer is expiring, and will not be reissued. The above is our sum total of communication up to that point. Draw your own conclusion.

    My advice to other engineers is to steer clear until they either figure their recruiting process out, have a mature leader, or decide to pay a competitive salary.
