    I have been working at D2L full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    An organization filled to the brim with talented and passionate employees. You may be skeptical during the interview phase, but D2L is the real deal. There are fantastic perks; WFH policies, dogs in the office, on-site gym, phone and internet stipend, and more. The culture is open and doesn't have the normal red-tape that you'd generally find in larger organizations.

    The work feels meaningful, and there aren't the usual hard boundaries that stop you from pursuing your genuine interests. Work-life balance is a key focus in the organization, and mental health is actually taken seriously.

    Cons

    There are processes that are still being formalized, but that's to be expected

    Community Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at D2L (Kitchener, ON) in August-2016.

    Interview

    First round - call. The interviewer called me and started first off with asking me about myself/my experience. Continued on to ask why I wanted to work at D2L, what I thought a Community Manager did, etc.

    Overall it was a simple interview that I was not fully prepared for, which was my own issue. Second round of interviews would've been a face-to-face interview, followed by a presentation.
