    I worked at Ocado Technology full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working flexibility
    A lot to learn from colleagues
    Really high level of knowledge in the teams
    People are hired for their knowledge, and everyone is really listening to your solution
    Great place to grow skills
    Offices are amazing
    Everyone is friendly
    Encouraged to be who you are (skills, look, etc)
    Good and cheap canteen in the office
    Lot of side projects, if you want to change

    Cons

    Salary slightly lower than the average, probably
    Hatfield (the office location) is a small town with nothing to do, so it's better to commute (lot of better towns nearby)

    Advice to Management

    Keep working in the same way, but increase the salaries to good employees

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Ocado Technology (Hatfield, East of England, England) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Step 1 - Phone interview with an external recruiter
    Step 2 - Online assessment Java test. Three problems in 100 minutes via codility.com testing platform. Easy to medium difficulty.
    Step 3 - On site assessment day. Two test, 45 minutes each, one aptitude test and one standard Java test (Linked list). If you pass the morning session you will have one (or more) face-to-face interview(s) with some dev leader.
