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

    Pros

    - Get to work with smart and helpful people everyday
    - Opportunity to work on high-impact projects and challenging tasks
    - Great benefits
    - Flexible working hours and remote-friendly

    Cons

    Technical debt around old systems, which can be frustrating to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Career growth opportunities should be more explicitly available for employees, as there are currently no formal training program to improve on soft/hard skills. Constructive feedback should be given at a regular basis from managers.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at DigitalOcean.

    Interview

    This is the longest process to date, with a lot of time and energy being invested from the interviewee's stand point(especially if you don't get the job). This is a huge problem especially if the interviewee has other offers on the table, but really wants to see the outcome of this particular job.

    Applied through the website, got a call from recruiter, then had a homework assignment, then video interview if I passed, and then meeting with 5 people on site with 45 minute interviews each. A lot of redundancy in the questions, but it's good to meet the whole team you'd be a part of and working with. The recruiter stayed in touch throughout the process which was great, and very helpful.

    The reason for not hiring didn't make sense, because it seemed like they didn't even want to hire for this position and I felt like I wasted my time in the end. A proper reason would be beneficial especially if the interviewee has made a greater effort and put in so much time.
