I have been working at Elastic full-time (More than a year)
The growth here has been insane and there are certainly shifts that need to occur. However, this is not a negative in my opinion. Cultures have to adapt and change, so seeing all of these new faces who bring new perspectives and ideas make me even more excited to see what’s to come. In response to the reviews about micromanagement, I have to disagree. I am treated as a professional all the time. I manage my own calendar. Yes, I may have to take a call earlier or later than if I was in an office but I am also afforded the opportunity to see my kids if I have a break, head to a doctor if needed without taking time off and other huge perks which I value.
- The people here are truly top notch. I am lucky to now know individuals I consider friends across almost all continents
- I truly do believe in our products and trajectory. I’m not a technical person, but I still think what we do is awesome
I honestly cannot think of any worth writing
Advice to Management
I say continue doing what you’re doing. We cannot stay small forever and evolving is part of life. Can’t wait to see what the future brings
I applied online. I interviewed at Elastic.
I was contacted by HR. The interview went really smooth and, as far as I can tell, the the interviewer told me that I should have done the technical one. At least that's what I understood. Long story short two days after I get the automatic response about "thank but not thank you because we had other candidates that fit better the role". So I wrote to the HR to say thanks for the opportunity but also asking a feedback about what was wrong with me since the interview with HR went quite ok. Never got an asnwer. I voted negative experience because you get that type of answer before starting the interview process, after it would be appreciated a real human answer from HR with a real feedback, not the automatic one.
As YOU, Are
We all come in different shapes with different interests and skills. We all have an accent. Celebrate it. Just come as you are.
No need to invest neurons trying to fit an arbitrary mold. We’d rather you put them to work shaping Elastic.
“When I joined Elastic almost two years ago, we were around 300 employees. Since then, we have added over 800 employees across the world. Being part of such a globally distributed organization makes us think differently about every aspect of employee engagement. We are reinventing our onboarding process at every opportunity and we focus on an onboarding process that is simple, which is directly tied to our Source Code - a set of ideas that make Elastic who we are. It takes a specialized team to make it all work from Paris to Seoul, Sydney to Rio to Mountain View and beyond. Onboarding new employees is not just a starting point in one’s journey with us, but the beginning of an individual’s path to help shape the future of Elastic.“
