Discussion on: 10 Questions I'm Asking All Companies Before Scheduling Any Interviews

Are there "correct" answers to these questions? If so, could you elaborate? It's not obvious to me what the correct answer would be to some of these.

It's mostly about what you're looking for in a company, so the "correct" answers are entirely up to you! Personally, I want to work with a larger engineering team and I want to work in a supportive environment that has regularly scheduled 1:1s. The questions about performance reviews are also helpful in determining whether an environment is going to be supportive. I've heard of companies that have tossed out performance reviews entirely during the pandemic, and I'd personally rather work at a company like that than one that went on as if it's "business as usual."
