Interviewing Take Home Assignments: Yay or Nay?

Curious to hear the experience of others in regards to take home assignments as part of the interview process.

 

What company, role, and what kind of assignment was it? Do you feel it was a worthwhile use of your time (and the companies)?

 

I can see pros and cons for take home assignments but would appreciate your insights.

I personally don't do them anymore. They generally take a long time and happen at a relatively early stage of the interview process so most people who do them are going to get turned away.

That being said a lot of people refuse to do them nowadays so you'd be at a slight competitive advantage if you just bite the bullet and do them.
