Very high level in many ways
There are so many unpaid interns and new grads with no prior industry experience working at this small company, but experienced management team somehow manages this chaotic environment. If you need to know the size of the business before coming the final decision, my recommendation is to ask for the number of full-time regular employees instead of the number including interns and trustworthy record of annual revenue. Turnover rate is about 100%/year excluding interns and part-timers, and interviewing new comers almost everyday.

Multi-Cultural, Design Focused Environment
The culture at btrax is centered around DESIGN: creative, collaborative, fun. Working people from all over the globe makes for interesting conversations over lunch and happy hours...also makes for different and fresh perspective on topics when working on projects. Not your typical US-Japanese company as there's no hierarchy when it comes to listening to different ideas and opinions. Leadership is supportive. The projects I get to work on at btrax are all very different, but all very interesting. I've developed many skills here and continue to learn and grow every day...definitely a huge PERK of the company. Highly recommend btrax!

A great place to challenge yourself, a bad place to create a career.
A typical day a btrax could be anything. It is a business constantly changing, hanging on by a thread, but still somehow succeeding. I learned a lot about how to manage myself, lead others, and be self-reliant. Unfortunately these were lessons I had to learn alone and the hard way. Management does not provide much mentor ship, nor do they set a good example for the rest of the workers. The culture can range from having fun and drinking together after hours to petty arguments where management can get emotional, unprofessional, or just unexpectedly unreasonable. If you last more than six months, you can pat yourself on the back for having an iron will and amazing patience. The hardest part of the job is accepting that no matter how hard you work at something, you are not in control of anything. The owner has a tight grip over almost everything the company does. It can be difficult to work with someone who trusts their own gut over proven experience and merit of others. The most enjoyable part of this job is the co-workers you get to meet. btrax on average has a 60-100% turnover rate every year. There's always bound to be fresh new faces, unpaid interns, and visiting clients in and out of the headquarters. It's a great opportunity to meet new people and network.
