    I have been working at Lyst full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Lyst has clearly invested a lot of time building a culture where people are motivated by what they do and enjoy coming to work.
    - The company values are really clear from day one. People know where they stand and know what they are expected to deliver on.
    -Senior management are cohesive. They communicate key decisions and strategy to the business well, and have inspired commitment and loyalty from employees (a lot of whom have been there 3+ years).
    - Employees are switched on and smart. Lyst has ~120 employees but still maintains a start-up culture in a lot of ways, moving quickly and proving fast. People get a lot of ownership over what they do and are accountable for it.
    - Lyst holds a unique position in the market and has big ambitions over where it wants to be. There are great opportunities to be stretched and no two days at work are ever the same.
    -Excellent offices and company perks (lunch, yoga, football, friday socials etc).

    Cons

    -Can't think of any cons in particular.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Lyst (London, England) in July 2019.

    Interview

    1. Online application
    2. Telephone interview
    3. Coding test
    4. Onsite interview (with the VP Engineering and Senior Engineer), followed by programming exercises (with senior engineers). Ending with cultures and values interview.

    I was always well informed by the HR, and their response was very fast. When I attended the onsite interview I thought the office culture and the people were great, and this made me feel very comfortable throughout the whole process.
