    I worked at Mailchimp full-time (More than a year)


    Bonuses are nice. Pay is decent. Work-life balance is real here.


    Benifits are bad when you sit down and do the math. High deductible health insurance is fine for singles and twenty-somethings. You won't get promoted. Management doesn't listen to you.

    There are cliques everywhere and if you're not a "cool kid" or from ETSY you won't see forward progress.

    Tech stack is old and mismanaged in the name of "being boring".

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Mailchimp (Atlanta, GA (US)) in May 2016.


    Referred by another engineer working there to a recruiter. The recruiter messaged me on LinkedIn, contacted back the same day and set up a quick 'get to know you' phone call. Scheduled a phone interview with one of the software engineer managers. After that scheduled an on-site group interview with other engineers: Two software engineer managers, API Engineer, and a Software Engineer who was a former Intern. The recruiter was great about my updating me on the interview process and what would come next and when to be expected to be contacted and also how to prepare for the interview. They will let you know if it will be technical or not.
