    I have been working at theScore Inc. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    theScore is a mature company with startup vibe. The products are amazing and the customers love it. It embodies a strong engineering culture and there's a lot of emphases to build products the "right" way. Given the size of the engineering team, you'll never feel you're on your own. There's always someone interested in helping out. The tech stack is so wide that you're not going to run out of things to learn. They make a point to help people try/learn new things. A lot of interesting discussions happens at lunch time around the picnic tables.

    Cons

    It gets challenging when trying to work on too many initiatives. It can get difficult if you don't continuously improve yourself. Also, the office space is big and spread out across two levels. Given my role, I don't feel that there's a need for me to go to the other side and meet the people there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communicating the big goals, the opportunity ahead of us, and the path to success.

    Product Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at theScore Inc. (Waterloo, ON) in March-2017.

    Interview

    Skype video call. The interviewer gave an intro about himself then I gave an intro about myself. Asked questions that would be relevant for a PM. Left time at the end for questions. Although whenever I gave an answer the interviewer always responded with a confused look which made myself feel like no matter what I would say didn't have validation. Whenever I would give an answer to a question he would respond with, "Oh ok, I guess that makes sense" or "That's fair" and move on. Considering all the positive reviews, I was expecting much better interview experience. In all honesty, I wouldn't want to work with/under the interviewer. He seemed more interested in looking at my responses and finding a problem with them than attempting to understand the general idea and dive deeper into it.
