I have an on-site interview coming up for the frameworks team at cruise.

Any insight if I should focus on specific topics ? I've literally spent no time reading system design questions. Is that commonly asked ?

Other than this, if anyone can comment on the:
- room for growth
- is the team/org supportive of growing people on the team ? I as an eng manager do that and find there is a great synergy when the org supports you in helping grow people in their careers ?
- Quality of work that the team does ? If given a chance, would you want to be a part of the team or run away :)
- Work life balance
- team culture

I'd appreciate any insight.

    Growth is definitely a big part of engineering culture at Cruise. We don't have very many levels, so it's less about growing to the next promotion and more about growing your skills as an engineer.
    Happy to chat more if needed

    This is Satya Pichai. The most powerful man on blind. DM me for acquisitions.
    SD1 and SD2s are being asked system design questions now a days. You think an engineering manager won't be asked those?

      I do expect it, but..wishful thinking. I actually system design questions and is a big part of my current job. It's the open ended nature and crossing your fingers that you take the design in the direction that interviewer wants is the part that makes me cringe and sigh.
