    Pros

    • Managers do take the time to conduct one-on-one meetings to get to know you and help you focus on strengths and work on weaknesses.
    • Great office culture where employees are encouraged to speak up and be heard.
    • Founders and managers sit in the same areas as everybody else, and there's a true open door policy (related: there are no doors).
    • There are monthly free work lunches and quarterly rewards for team performance, but they don't use food as a way to get you to work at the office 24/7.
    • You don't have to fight for the equipment you need to do your job well.

    Cons

    • Paid vacations are generous for new employees, but vacation time doesn't scale with seniority or time with the company. It's not that the environment is overly stressful, but providing vacation time really is a way to keep your best people performing at peak capacity.
    • Until early 2019, it was harder to have an idea of what career growth at Archon would look like for you. A new system in 2019 is helping greatly with this.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the company culture intact, it's amazing and a great incentive for employees to stay and grow.
    Don't forget the core offering to small businesses.

    Web and Graphic Designer Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Archon Systems (Toronto, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    The application process was straightforward and very methodical – part due to the smart people at the company but I also believe part because they have refined it after doing it some many times. They seem to post a job and then interview for it, and you don't get the job, only to see the job posted a month later. You are required to do an assignment and if you make it through that round, you have to do another presentation presenting your assignment. That is after the first interview. So in total 3+ interviews.
