    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

    Java Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience


    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.
