    I have been working at HS2 Solutions full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    HS2 Solutions is a fantastic place to work. It is a place where the skies the limit, you can do or be whatever you want, if you want to get into new technologies so you can move to work with other clients, they will work with you to do so. We all work hard, everyone helps each other out and everyone is very smart. We do whatever it takes to meet deadlines and put out the best product for our clients. You can work from home and take unlimited vacation, so long as you are communicating that with your team.

    Cons

    We have such low turnover that it is rare that HS2 has hired someone who isn't a fit, however, when we do have such people it seems that the company doesn't quite know what to do with them. It seems as if we don't really have the tools to mentor that person up to the job and we don't get rid of them fast enough, if they aren't able to get up to speed, which at HS2 is a high bar.

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing smartly and continue to hire cautiously, the future is bright.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at HS2 Solutions.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of a series of 3 calls followed by a 3 hour take home exercise based on a brief which is all standard. What wasn't standard was the fact that I never heard back from HS2. Finally, after 4 weeks I reached back out and they sent me a generic rejection email. I understand that they had a better candidate, but I do think after spending hours on something, they could have taken a few minutes to explain what they did and did not like about my response.
