    I worked at TWG full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - As with any agency the diversity of work can be invaluable in learning, but TWG does a great job of setting teams up well to succeed at their engagements.
    - There's freedom to experiment and learn through that, while still having support when requested or needed.
    - Great progressive culture. When issues are raised, I believed they were being heard.

    Cons

    - For some roles the hours can be long, with lots of "invisible" work being done. Certainly true for PMs (during my time).
    - Compensation could be a bit better.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing for good, ethical work. It's not always easy, but it means a lot on the outside and inside.

    Web Developer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at TWG (Toronto, ON) in June 2019.

    Interview

    First was a phone screening with a recruiter. We chatted about my current role, why I wanted to leave, what was the most important thing I was looking for in my next job then I asked a few questions.

    Next was an in-person, hour long chat with their Director of Engineering (Brian). This was an awesome experience as he is a very pleasant guy to talk to. It more like a conversation than an interview, he talked a bit then I told him what I thought, sometimes I'd ask a question and we'd go back and forth on that topic. I mentioned that I wanted to work on web apps but since I didn't have much experience he suggested continuing to interview for the web dev team then move to web apps gradually after a year or so.

    After that, they sent me a timed Codility test to do at home. I found it to be the perfect level of difficulty. There were some multiple choice questions but mostly coding (I used JS).

    The last stage I made it to was an in-person interview with 2 senior engineers. They gave me a wireframe of a site and spent about an hour going through various parts of the site, asking me how I'd build it, what platform I'd use and exploring my potential solutions.
