Fanbox posts



  • I flew out for a day-long interview. The place is a start-up so don't expect a marble entry-way when you arrive. I ended up not getting an offer. Regardless, I don't think I would have relocated now anyway even though san diego is a great city.

    I see a lot of people just vent on these posts instead of being objective. I think people expect every company is going to be like Google and give free massages and bikes you can use to ride around their 50 acre spread.

    I have taken a different approach. I asked questions to the head of engineering and an hr guy for an hour and feel like I can be objective.

  • Man, you signed up for an account and even set an avatar just to start another thread about fanbox?  Jeez, people, the first person to create an anti-Ektron, anti-Fanbox website will make a fortune in advertising.

    I have registered the domains.  I will sell advertising space on either site for $1 per-click, good sirs.
