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

    Pros

    - An amazing group of people to work with. We have a recognition channel where we can give thanks and props to our teammates, which gets a lot of use! Everyone is genuine and gracious to one another.
    - Only 70-80 employees, so everyone knows everyone.
    - The company as a whole is very transparent. We have a company wide meeting every 1-2 weeks for status updates from different departments and ask-me-anything meetings where the company can ask the board and execs the tough questions and they are answered honestly.
    - Lots of opportunity for growth and learning within the company. As an engineer specifically, there are multiple teams working on different areas of the product. If you want to work on something different, there is opportunity to switch to another area.
    - Great benefits: Daily lunches, fully stocked kitchen and pub. Cold brew and coffee provided. Monthly massages. Weekly yoga, and meditation every Tuesday and Thursday. Flexible hours and work from home policy if you need to. After 5 years, you get a vacation/trip paid for as a gift from the company. Unlimited time off. Paternity/Maternity leave. Commuter benefits and gym reimbursement. This list goes on.
    - Great culture and very pro-volunteering. Referral Bonuses for hires is donated to a charity of your choice. As a group we also do volunteer activities as they arise.

    Cons

    Really not much to complain about. If anything, we face the same struggles most start ups face. We are finding our spot in the market where we can grow, and in the process things can get rocky (layoffs and switching focus and resources when needed).

    Advice to Management

    Continue to define the focus of the company so we can have some features that we do exceptionally well (bug free) and stand out in the market.

    Continue to support your employees and keep the genuine company culture.

    Continue coming up with ideas to keep morale high despite the rough patches. The recognition channel was a huge success and helped boost the positivity in the office.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Yesware (Boston, MA (US)) in September 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process at Yesware was one of the most accommodating that I've had. After applying online, I was quickly reached out to by a recruiter for a phone screen. From the start, the overall tone was very welcoming and relaxed. The phone screen was a candid conversation to learn more about my background / interests and the position and company.

    Soon after, I was contacted to schedule a phone interview with the hiring manager. Similar to the phone screen, it was an opportunity to have an open conversation about the position and how my background/interests may fit. The entire call was very conversational and didn't feel like a rigid, formal interview. Questions and answers flowed naturally throughout the conversation.

    From there, I was scheduled for an on-site interview (2.5 hours) where I met 1:1 with 5 team members (recruiter, hiring manager, founder/CTO, and team members the role would work closely with). They were very accomodating with my schedule being that I was leaving for vacation and was only able to select from one of their options.

    Upon arrival, I was greated and taken to a conference room. Each interviewer had their own style, but the overall approach was relaxed and focused on my past experience and how I would handle certain situations. What I appreciated is that the questions weren't scripted or your typical behavioral/scenario-based ones. Questions arose naturally through each discussion with a few specific ones popping up here and there. You could tell that the questions were focused on me, and they took the time to review my resume and background before hand.

    At the conclusion of the morning, the recruited gave me a tour of the office where I got to see the space (and perks!). It was around lunch time, and a good number of people were socializing and eating together (which is a nice thing to see!).

    By end of week, I was given an offer. The offer was not unexpected. In fact, the overall range and expectations were transparent from the start. After a few days to think, I ultimately decided not to leave my current employer due to a change of events that occured after my on-site interview.

    Overall, my experience with Yesware was outstanding, and the decision to not accept was not easy. If my employer's unexpected need hadn't arisen, I would have joined the team in a minute!
