    I have been working at Vicarious Visions full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people here are all extremely passionate about their work, no matter the project. The drive and commitment to quality are what motivates everyone to give their best.

    Cons

    Location. Northeast winters are not the most fun to endure, but that is no fault of anyone.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Vicarious Visions in May 2018.

    Interview

    I applied and heard back within a week to setup an interview within the following week. Communication up to that point was pleasant and the phone interview itself was nice and welcoming.

    However, I have to give a neutral overall experience because, while the interview itself was positive, I never heard back again, even after sending a follow-up email to the recruiter. I found this rather disappointing as every other place I've ever interviewed with at least responded, even if they decided not to move forward with you.
