    I have been working at G-Research full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Massively talented colleagues who are always happy to share their knowledge.

    Really interesting technical platform which sees continuous investment to ensure it remains at the cutting edge.

    Good work culture, company understands that looked after employees produce solid work. Lots has been done to make sure the normal social atmosphere remains during these WFH times.

    Cons

    While WFH is a thing and looks to be for the near future, seems like there may be some reluctance to continue it on into the future.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at G-Research (Research) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Had a HackerRank, didn't think I'd done too well but managed to get an interview. Had 2 standard technical interviews, a tour while they decided on whether I should have 2 further interviews, then I had the 2 further interviews that were less technical but still about software and my technical interests and to get an idea about the kind of team I'd want to work with.
