    I worked at C3.ai full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Catered lunch and breakfast are provided
    One of the few startups that is actually making money
    If you accept the processes laid down without any questions, life is easier for sure.
    For some teams, immediate managers might be more reasonable than higher leadership themselves.
    Tickets to Tom's box are occasionally provided for 49ers games.
    Holiday parties are great.

    Cons

    Leadership seems to be autocratic and set in their ways. Very few things are up for discussion and change. For example, the work from home perk has long been non-negotiable and though it is such a big pain point for most employees. The only response cited repeatedly is that this was told upfront during the interview process.
    Negative glassdoor reviews that have been posted are legit and the rather defensive response to those reviews is a good representation of how discussions at C3 usually go.
    Some people are smart, but most of the talent is quite average.
    Value of stock options is regularly brought up in questions related to compensation, yet there is no clarity on when or if there will be an IPO.
    Micro management is real. Some teams require you to keep track of every hour worked.

    Advice to Management

    Trust the engineers to do their jobs.
    Invest in tools and technologies to speed up development rather than adding more bureaucracy
    Don't have engineering managers with little to no SWE expertise leading engineering teams. For folks that are promoted to be managers, don't have them completely detach from code.
    Allow work-from-home on at least a limited basis. Software is probably one of the few professions that can enjoy this luxury, so please leverage it. There are better uses of your employees' PTO than wasting on DMV/house-repair/dental appointments.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at C3.ai.

    Interview

    Même si objectivement mon CV et la description de poste ont matché à 99-100% même 110% à cause de mon expérience j'ai eu rapidement la réponse qu'ils ne cherchent plus.
    Sauf que, quelques jours après, l'annonce est de nouveau en ligne et depuis l'est tout le temps (~3 mois).

    Comment les entreprises se fichent des candidats...
    No comment...
