Is the DoorDash take home case just their way of crowdsourcing free work? Feel like the questions they asked could easily be a 4 week project.

A company as big as DoorDash is not going to get a new perspective or unique groundbreaking idea they’ve never thought of from an analytics exercise, so I would say they are not doing it for free work. Plus, if you did give them something they never thought of they would hire you of course. The benefit of having a employee like that way outranks a couple hundred thousand saved from not hiring a consultant firm for this work.

Mine was not an analytics exercise. It was like 20 research questions that you’d ask in a GLG interview which is what made me think it was crowdsourcing free work. It makes no sense to ask someone who has no context whatsoever to do such specific research. How does that test your abilities? I submitted it, and they ghosted. Tale as old as time, based on the posts in this bowl.

Search the bowl - mixed responses

Most people seem to have gotten an excel exercise. I got a huge list of research questions

Joined USI as an Analyst and I feel really depressed. My seniors are hell bent upon making it all the more difficult. I used to love my job once upon a time but nowadays I just dread the Monday morning and even more so the stand-up calls. On the top of all this my seniors/leads do not stop criticising my work and make me feel like a loser which has impacted my confidence. I sometimes break down alone in my room while working and feel very frustrated. Is this normal or am I just in a bad project?
