I have been working at PagerDuty full-time
PagerDuty is awesome. I have worked in and out of tech companies for almost 20 years. In that time, I have never worked for a company that challenges employees to get out of their comfort zones both professionally and personally. We have great career opportunities and managers that care about your growth, Employee Resource Groups (I celebrated International Women's Day for the first time ever this year), yoga classes, a company band (in SF & Toronto), the list goes on and on. Not only that, but we now have a robust and generous Parental Leave Policy that allows employees to spend more time with family without taking a huge financial hit. I love that this company cares about us both on a personal and professional level.
Sure we're not perfect. We are experiencing huge growth and with that comes growing pains. But the pros FAR outweigh the cons.
Advice to Management
Continue to do what you're doing. It's good to see a focus on Career and Manager Development for 2018. Iron the kinks out - let's get our backbone solid before we climb Everest so to speak.
I applied online. I interviewed at PagerDuty.
Initial phone screen with recruiter, followed by a 1 hour video call with the hiring manager, then a 30 min call with an executive.
The screening and call with the hiring manager was relaxed/informal, chatting about background.
The call with the executive in the last stage was the most bizarre interview I've had to date - he came across as very antagonistic, and seemingly made up an opinion about me before speaking to me.
The process therefore left a lasting negative impression for me, and I was not left thinking I'd missed out on a good opportunity. There seemed to be communication difficulties between the 3 people I spoke to.
