    I have been working at Civis Analytics full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    (1) Exceptionally smart, caring, fun coworkers; (2) Working with well-known companies, or in support of progressive politicians, or for non-profits and "do-gooder" governmental projects; (3) A great place to learn new skills (hard and soft)

    Cons

    (1) Compensation seems fair for the work but low compared to jobs you'd enjoy less (not necessarily a con, but a consideration); (2) Like many new companies, the future is uncertain (compared to IBM or Accenture)

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Civis Analytics in March-2014.

    Interview

    Before I submitted my resume, I had a informational conversation with an employee. I don't know to what degree, if any, this impacted my application process.

    I submitted my resume a weekday morning. Within a few hours, I was contacted for a phone interview, which lasted about 60 minutes. The same day, I was also contacted about scheduling a timed, four-hour exam. I ended up taking it a few days later, and the exam was reasonably straightforward.

    After completing the initial interview and exam, I was contacted about taking another exam, which I was given a day and half to complete. The second exam was significantly more difficult (and arguably more interesting) than the first. At the same time that I was asked to take the second exam (that is, prior to my taking it), I also scheduled an interview to go over the exam results. Following that interview, I had two more in-person interviews, including one with the CEO. I received an offer the following week.

    In total, I took two tests and had four interviews, two by phone and two in-person.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked not to divulge exam questions. More pertinently, my impression was that the exam process is in flux, so the interview questions asked of me (or anyone else on this page) may no longer be used.   Answer Question
