    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Telerik full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Attempted to be a "hip place" to work with a game room, free lunches, and happy hour once a week. Great healthcare benefits. All other benefits were pretty standard for the industry.

    Cons

    When I first started at the US office, it was a small niche group of people that truly wanted to succeed. Within 2 years, that all changed. Numerous times I witness hard working employees walked out by HR without a single negative review or constructive feedback. The turn over was monumental. HR had no idea what type of individual would be a good fit and hired anyone that applied. Most new hires never made it past the introductory period.

    Once the staff had more than quadrupled in size, office management lost control. Communication broke down, and if you were caught in the cross-fires you were screwed. Some departments were able to stabilize, but with many offices scattered across the globe, it was virtually impossible.

    HR and upper management held onto their favorites, paid them structured bonuses, offered flexible working hours, remote capabilities and countless other perks. Any complaint was left on deaf ears or put a target on your back for the next round of layoffs. Others who had earned, or requested more, were fired or forced out. Countless directors were hired to try and stabilize the working environment, but every single one came in with guns blazing and left within 6 months.

    After 5 years, and zero opportunity for growth or professional advancement, it was time to move on. I turned in my resignation letter, finished or redistributed my workload, and informed my coworkers of my planned departure. On my last day I received zero guidance from my direct supervisor, their supervisor, office management or HR. To cover myself I asked a manager from another department to witness me turning in my laptop, key card and to walk me out.

    There was great potential. But they would not hand the reigns over to Progress. In return, they lost several valuable employees.

    Advice to Management

    Find managers that know how to manage or train internally. Support your employees equally across the board.

    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX (US)
    No Offer
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Telerik (Austin, TX (US)) in February 2013.

    Interview

    I sent an email to their career email address and attached my resume and explained that I will be interested in their internship opportunity if they offer one. I got contacted by a recruiter some days later. We schedule a day for doing a phone interview. I had my phone interview with the recruiter and the hiring manager. The interview was about 30min and the questions were general questions regarding my resume and my knowledge about the Telerik itself.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing special, just general questions about my resume and my past work and the Telerik company, itself.   Answer Question
