    I worked at Charles River Development (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great product (CRIMS), OK employee training. Unbeatable work-life balance as work-from-home is greatly encouraged (for the Canada-based employees) Folks in Product Development are highly experienced, great wealth of industry knowledge.

    Cons

    Poor management structure. Unreasonably high emphasis on 'billables' creates an environment where everyone is out for themselves, no team atmosphere. Lack of commitment to fix-and-improve things.

    Advice to Management

    Work with employees to make a more pleasant work environment, work towards a more dynamic structure and treat people with respect.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Charles River Development (Toronto, ON) in April 2015.

    Interview

    After completing their IQ test and submitting the results, I met with 5 people after speaking with 1-2 future colleagues on the phone. The process was managed well by the Internal Recruiter from Charles River. First few calls were more of a get-to-know type of call as we could only talk about more generic, industry-related topics. Technology is proprietary so not much tech talk took place during the initial phone interviews. In-Person chats were done in a conference room, meeting 5 people one-on-one took over 4 hours, lots of chatting, only a handful of questions about previous experiences.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic troubleshooting questions and fundamental technology inquiries: how do you start a basic 'sql' query, can you name a few FIX tags.   Answer Question
