    Pros

    The people who work there are all mostly really nice, very helpful and very friendly. The company gives high importance to fitness - people run and bike regularly (there's a really nice bike room). The company provides a fully equipped kitchen, which is nice - there are salads, sandwiches and wraps that you can make for yourself. There's also fruits and yogurt and pop etc but it all gets boring eventually. It's good nonetheless - saves the effort of packing a lunch.

    Work itself was quite structured - tasks were mostly well defined and I was helped whenever I needed it, be it from my team or from other teams.

    Cons

    The pay could be better - not everyone enjoys the benefits that the company enforces on everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the sweet work! And maybe pay a bit more and cut the benefits down - not everyone enjoys the benefits!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Point Grey Research (Vancouver, BC) in June-2016.

    Interview

    The first round interview lasted about an hour and was mostly pertaining to my resume and previous work experience. There were a few technical questions about OOP.
    The second round interview lasted 2 hours, the first of which was with the development team. I was asked a few programming questions and asked to solve whiteboard problems. The problem was not anything shocking, definitely something a programmer would have encountered in school or online. The second half of the interview was with the management team. They mostly asked me more detailed questions about my work history.
    I had a very positive experience. Everyone I met with or spoke to at Point Grey was very professional and friendly. It seems that they have a solid process in place for talent acquisition.
