    Avantages

    Really good people. Pretty much everyone cared about books and reading. Lots of interesting conversations at lunch.

    Inconvénients

    Disorganized management. They had an expansive vision, but were not very good at focusing on what was important. There was also quite a bit of nepotism/cronyism and unwillingness to make the tough decision to let underperforming decision makers go.

    Conseils à la direction

    Slow down. Focus on only a few things at a time for a whole year. Be brave enough to anger the feedback group with unpopular but correct decisions. Build up infrastructure while fixing the mistakes of the past.

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé via un recruteur. Le processus a pris +2 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à Goodreads (San Francisco, CA (États-Unis)) en octobre 2013.

    Entretien

    The "best" (worst) part of the initial communication is that after exchanging emails with the recruiter and agreeing on the interview date, I wasn't sent the quite usual email of "our company is located at <address>, please sign the attached NNN ". You may think that was little but searching for the company address is not optimal, what if they *just* moved? Later on... I was actually asked for the signed NNN after I arrived at the reception on the day off. Great.
    After the interview, possibly the same recruiter didn't send feedback. No email, nothing at all actually.

    I had about four interviewers, with one of them very professional and likeable perhaps he was happy outside of work with his sporting endeavors (judging by the clothing). The others were just average. One was a bit edgy and surprising to ask me a question about coding in Ruby, where the job wasn't for that and I had explicitly stated I haven't done that. I thought I read his stuff well enough for never having touched that.
    Other questions were: traversing through a matrix, arranging layouts on a mobile device screen and so on.

    There was a phone screen + coding; additional exercise;; and then an on-site interview.
