    Pros

    Great place to learn and build yourself as a professional.

    Cons

    Very bad salary, by far lower than the average. Some people get promoted by being friends with the leaders. The environment is not so friendly, and if you're a woman you will receive a lot of sexist comments, including men judging how you look.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Despegar.com (Buenos Aires (Argentina)) in December 2011.

    Interview

    They were 5 interviews. First with HR's people, then they ask to code some algorithmic problems. Then an interview with a Software Development guy. It was basically to check the CV and some software design questions, also we wanted to check some of my background knowledge. After that I had 2 more interviews with Managers.

    Interview Questions

    • Name three quality aspects you always check when you are implementing (or coding) a software product and explain why they are important for you.   2 Answers
