    I have been working at VinSolutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - The engineering org is constantly pushing to adopt current technologies (AWS, React, .NET Core) instead of sticking with the legacy tech decisions. I've learned SO much about cloud development, dev ops, and service resiliency since I joined.

    - Leadership is open to new ideas, and everyone has a voice. Talking with senior management and executives is not intimidating.

    - Great track record of hiring and retaining talented people. I work with smart and passionate people daily, and it's inspiring.

    - The company is making LOTS of money and investing that into smart product initiatives. It feels like there is always something important and exciting to work on.

    - Open and friendly culture. I know almost everyone in the building because it's so easy to meet people. The engineering department has team rooms instead of cubicles, so teams build close relationships and collaborate easily.

    - The work/life balance is fantastic. No one will judge you if you have a doctor appointment or need to work from home to wait for the cable guy. The work hard/play hard culture removes the stress and judgement I've felt elsewhere for taking PTO.

    - Lots of growth opportunities. VinSolutions rewards hard work and talent.

    - Competitive pay and benefits. I'm very satisfied with my salary and yearly bonus, and my family is fully covered by Cox Auto's benefits package.

    Cons

    Everyone in the engineering org is salaried, but we still have to submit timesheets every week. This is something that could be automated by integrating with our work tracking tools.

    Annnnnnd that's it. It's hard to complain when I love coming to work and get paid a competitive salary to do so.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain the existing culture and keep the startup growth mindset going. The excitement in the engineering organization is fueled by a few key factors:

    - They get to use new and modern technology. Everyone feels like they're growing and learning.
    - They're given exciting and important projects to work on.
    - They get HONEST feedback about the success of products, both good and bad. Everyone I work with appreciates that leadership is not afraid to call out when a product isn't doing well in the market. That honesty from executives is refreshing and shows that the good feedback isn't blowing smoke. We know both sides of the story and are inspired to do better or continue succeeding.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at VinSolutions in March-2015.

    Interview

    After the interview, they said they want to hire me and after two weeks of giving me the run around, said they could not do so anymore! If that was the case, why waste my time and the time of everyone involved? I was quite frustrated already with the whole process, and was inclined to decline the offer myself. I would suggest to the HR to keep up their word or not say anything in the first place unless they are sure.
