    I have been working at UMAI Restaurant Reservation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've worked with some of the most hard-working, smart, and kind people at this company with a very steep learning curve and every day makes you sharper.
    You'll make lifelong friends

    Leadership genuinely cares about employees, the company is constantly making updates to better suit employees needs and wants e.g. BBQ nights, Lunch&Lean Session, flexibility in working hours or purchase of hardware etc.

    The co-founders are amazing, you can tell how passionate they are about the company and can see their vision (it does seem like the passion does stop with them though).

    No one holds it against you if you take a chance on something and it doesn't work or fails.

    Flat Hierarchies.

    Extremely fast paced environment but, as a pro, if you stay you will gain some important skills and experience.

    Plus it's right within walking distance of a ton of good restaurants and you can go out whenever for food/snacks.

    Cons

    There is a lot of change constantly - not necessarily a bad thing, not for everyone though.

    Mediocre startup salary. You need to be mission driven - not money driven to be part of this team.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UMAI Restaurant Reservation (San Diego, CA (US)) in July-2017.

    Interview

    The interview was very professional. You go through 2-3 rounds of interviews before you interview with one of their founders. Phone screening is usually first, and then you interview with their current PM. Kai Pua is one of their PMs and I enjoyed speaking with him, he is very knowledgeable and helpful and answering all my questions.
