    Pros

    Everyone works towards the mission of helping small businesses get the capital they need to grow
    Very knowledgeable and passionate sales team.
    Good opportunity for the team to contribute to the direction of the business.
    You will be pushed hard by your manager - Those in the leadership team are given significant responsibility and opportunity.

    Cons

    It's a rapidly scaling business and with that the priorities can change Q to Q.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to protect the culture.
    In trying to build a high performance team, make sure you don't overlook those that are a little slower to get off the mark.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Funding Options (London, England) in March 2018.

    Interview

    i had 3 interviews with the company themselves plus one interview with the recruiter.
    first interview with recruiter, then a phone convo with one of the people at FO. After that a interview with 2 managers, then a interview with the MD, and then an interview with the CEO. he decided not to hire me in the end. all the others were happy with me.
