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

    Pros

    Great team - everyone's eager to do good work, and help each other out
    Young business, big clients - you get the startup feeling, but doing large scale, enterprise work
    Cool tech - get to work with a modern big data stack, and the team are focused on implementing best practice, makes it a great place to grow
    Flat management structure - easy and approachable leadership and management

    Cons

    Given it's a young business, when you're doing something for the first time there might not be collateral to hand and you have to reach out to people back at HQ to get the advice you need. Can be frustrating sometimes, but will get better as the team grows in Aus.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the culture strong across offices. It's great to be part of something so fresh and exciting and we need to keep that!

    Front End Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    A controlling interviewer who wasted an enormous amount of my time on a 3-stage interview and basically admitted that he's using the take-home assignment stage to harvest people's code and ideas, for which they don't receive a single penny. He seems to take satisfaction in making people dance and trying to "prove" that he is the better developer. Clearly the power has gone to his head.

    After a challenging first stage face-to-face interview I was given a complex Angular project with only a week to complete it. I was busy that week and ended up with just 3 days left to do it. I think that considering the limited time and circumstances I did a good job; however, it was very rushed so I wasn't sure it would pass.

    But it did pass and I was invited to the final stage for which I was asked to prepare a 20-minute presentation about a project I have worked on in the past. I spent the week preparing my slides which turned out to be almost a sidenote to the interview. Seemingly almost half the interview was spent going over my rushed code with a fine-toothed comb and kicking me around over a few things I admitted I would do differently if I had more time.

    Presumably they expect their candidates to drop everything and, for no pay, turn out production-quality code and a lesser work of art which they can crib from at their leisure.

    In future I am not going to do any interviews where I notice these controlling tendencies from the beginning. I recommend the same course to other people as well.
