    The management is balanced and supervisors work hard to work around work/life balance.


    Health benefits are not as good as I have had elsewhere.

    1. Customer Success Engineer Interview

      Anonymous Employee in Vancouver, BC
      No Offer
      Negative Experience
      Average Interview

      I applied online. I interviewed at ActiveState (Vancouver, BC) in Jul 2023


      Initial phone screen by an SR HR partner. Was an engaging conversation with a follow up booking for me to meet with the CPO for round 2. Ghosted on second round zoom interview without explanation or advanced notice. Informed them that I'm no longer interested in applying for the role by email and dropped out of the process. Frustrating because they booked me on a friday afternoon when I could have made plans otherwise. Think twice, nuff said

      They asked me about my salary expectations, if I'm okay with 3 weeks vacation and a few other things.
