    I worked at Curse.com full-time

    Pros

    - Never been happier to go to 'work' couldn't call it that really. The people are so lovely and supportive, I would be remiss if I didn't sing their praises.
    - The relaxed work culture & tight knit gaming community in the office is the stuff of dreams.
    - If you have the tenacity & the right attitude, this is a company that will reward you (financially & fulfillment wise)
    - There's room for advancement (if you choose) not just in your career path, but if you have an idea worth pursuing and show passion Curse will provide resources.

    Cons

    - Industry moves quickly. The most valuable asset in the company may turn out to be a liability 2 years later. Hard to set a firm course, at time.
    - New directions means new blood, outside talent may have existing employees looking to grow, overlooked. Can be frustrating when you want to build a long term career.

    Advice to Management

    I would say there could be better communication across the board. Or empower employees to be able to reach out of their 'bubble' as Curse is a fairly flat org. If you feel your direct manager isn't doing you justice, its hard to navigate those waters.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Curse.com.

    Interview

    Initially applied to an online posting but was a better fit for a full time position. I did a couple casual phone/Skype interviews and then was flown to their HQ for another casual round of in-person interviews. I would not necessarily say that my experience was typical of most employees, who went through a more official application process for a specific job whereas I just happened to get my resume on the desk of someone who'd been thinking of creating a position like the one I ended up being offered.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked to come up with strategies for attracting groups of users from the main competitor.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I received an offer I felt was very low considering my educational background. However, the position was way too good a fit to pass up, so I bargained their salary offer up enough to make it reasonable, if still a little low.
