    I have been working at Myplanet full-time

    Pros

    -My team is super smart
    -We work for some of top companies in the world. Most customers are in the US and Europe
    -I can definitely notice my skills growing, and management is very committed to feedback. We get detailed feedback twice per year that is constructive and helpful.
    -The company is growing quite a bit. This is exiting, as they struggled with their sales model in 2015 but seem to have learned from the mistakes.
    -I like the commitment to making all employees owners
    -The company has been investing heavily in data and machine learning. There seems to be a commitment to significant skills upgrades and training for all of us.

    Cons

    -Company can be very Toronto centric as that’s where most people are based. This is improving.
    - I’m worried that the new capabilities we are building might come out of my own time.
    -Customer-facing roles often have a travel component. Most people have to spend a few days travelling each quarter, but Engagement Lead and Client Service roles can be more. Most travel is to San Francisco and London UK.
    -Work hours can be busy in spurts around product deadlines.
    -I’m not always sure what my stock options mean for me. This could be explained better.

    Advice to Management

    - Keep diligent on new hires to make sure our team stays strong. - - Spend more time with each team and employee to help convey what Smarter Interfaces will mean for them

    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Myplanet (London, England) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Begins with a casual conversation with the manager, he asks about you and why you think you'd be suitable for the job. Then you're given a script to rehearse for around 30 minutes. The manager then asks you if you have any further questions. After this you are told to pitch the products to him using the script he handed.

    Over the last decade, few aspects of software have gathered more attention and appreciation than "usability". As releases have given way to iterations and functional has merged with "sexy", most members of the tech community now?-?finally?-?recognize that within the holistic context of a software product UX can play a "make or break" role.
