      Good benefits (healthcare, dental, vision, 403(b) retirement plan


      Poor compensation, limited advancement opportunities, employees must pay for parking each semester and are also nickel & dimed for contributions to university fundraising objectives. Also very siloed between each department and even more divided amongst the seven schools.

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)


      Principal Customer Success Manager

      Are case studies/presentations a normal part of interview processes? This is in addition to several interview rounds. These typically take 2 days to do, and require of anywhere from 6-15 slides worth of information, and require deep dives into company product portfolios, use cases, competitive advantages, application to fictitious customer scenario JUST to present. It's exhausting to have to do multiples of these and feels like free labor.

      QA Specialist II

      im beating myself up. I had 3rd interview yesterday. I think all interviews went well, particularly my 2nd one. In this one (and now that I’m thinking about it, this also happened in my first one) I accidentally started answering a question before the interviewer finished the question. When I realized I did this, I immediately stopped and said “im sorry I interrupted you, please continue”. When this happened yesterday, the interviewer stopped to jot something down. Did I cost myself the job??

      I’ve gone through too many interviews now, with some being extremely promising until the 3rd-4th round and I get hit with an email stating: “We’re putting this position on hold to refocus on what we really need from the role” Or something similar. What is going on with these job postings and then freezing the hiring? I can’t be just a Q4 thing because I’ve gone through this over the summer with multiple interviews. Is it me? Or is the market really that right for everyone right now?
