    Pros

    Laterooms provided me an ideal environment to grow both from a professional and personal standpoint. I learned more working for Laterooms than I did in all my previous years, the rate of change in the company offered me opportunities to constantly be learning and growing as a professional.

    I had the opportunity to be mentored by people that were at the top of their game in our industry, preparing me for the next step in my career.

    From a personal stand-point, the company supported me through hardships that could have very well damaged my career severely had I been working elsewhere. I truly loved working for Laterooms, changed my life, I will be always grateful for having had the chance to work side by side with such a great group of people.

    Cons

    A rapid changing environment is always challenging. While I do not think its necessarily a negative thing, it is something to be aware of as on Laterooms everything is constantly changing and evolving.

    Advice to Management

    We are in a very challenging industry, while I think we have nailed the culture and values of our organization I feel that we are still searching for our identity as a company. Are we a technology or an OTA? We need a way to find out what truly differentiates us from our competitors. If we manage to get this right, Laterooms is going to flourish again.

    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manchester, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at LateRooms.com (Manchester, England (UK)) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Pair programming exercise with a 30 min time limit, 1 to 1 interview to discuss your development experience focusing primarily on how much unpaid out of hours self training you did per week and how much Test Driven Development experience you had. There was also an emphasis on peer pressure to attend regular weekend developer TDD conferences (in London) again unpaid and expected to be self funded as far as entrance tickets, hotels etc.

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly C sharp/TDD questions, also they want to know if you have worked on any large user base commercial websites before.   Answer Question
