I have been working at Visual Meta full-time (More than 3 years)
Very friendly atmosphere in general, great people from many parts of the world.
Nice office space and very comfortable working environment.
Management/agile practices within teams are getting noticeably better.
Cross-department communication can get terribly inefficient, leading to stressful situations at times.
Seemingly no clear definition where company is heading - widely announced company goals and decisions sometimes seem chaotic and lacking rationale.
Salaries are apparently below average on the market.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Visual Meta.
As a first step I was having a short phone interview with the senior recruiting manager. It was a really relaxed conversation, the recruiter was really enthusiastic and she made a very positiv impression. She wanted to get to know more about my CV, experiences and motivations. The second round was happening through Skype. In this round also the future team leader was present and scanned the corresponding knowledge with regard to the position. The third and also final round was divided into two parts. In the first section I had to prepare a little case study. The second part was a group conversation with the future team members. The process was very dynamic and I always had very positiv feeling after each round.
