    This is a great company to work for because the company advocates for its employees and is a supportive environment.

    I worked at MAQ Software full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    MAQ Software helps its employees find relevant positions in leading companies in the Seattle and Eastside areas. It consistently checks in and makes sure employees are happy and satisfied in their positions, as well as being challenged.

    Cons

    Most of the positions are contract based so there is not a lot of opportunity for FTE positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to have a little more contact with management during periods between contracts.

    Right place for young people with desire to learn and take on roles not typically available at early stages of career

    Former Employee - Program Manager in Redmond, WA
    Former Employee - Program Manager in Redmond, WA

    I worked at MAQ Software

    Pros

    MAQ Software provides great opportunities for young engineers to get exposure as project leads within first couple years of their career. Typically, such opportunities are provided only to people with over 5 years of experience at other organizations. This is invaluable opportunity for recent graduates and people with one or two years of experience.
    Company management provides right framework and rigor that allows / forces software engineers to follow process and learn value of planning and following a consistent methodology.

    Cons

    Currently company focusses only on Microsoft business and technologies. This is not the place for people who want a job that does not require hard-work (50hrs or more per week) and for people who need lot of hand-holding, guidance and training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire one or two business development managers (not program managers who also can do biz dev). Improve reinforcement / recognition of top performers. People need it especially during early phases of career so that they know that they are on the right track.

    Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Mumbai (India)

    I worked at MAQ Software full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Latest technology
    Good for juniors as politics is more of constructive
    you got to learn several things apart from technical learnings, like communication skill, time management and how to improve focus
    Very friendly environment

    Cons

    long-long work hours
    it doesn't matter what type of resource is in the team, management will count them as 3 resource per person :P
    and lot of pressure
    After 2-3 years growth opportunity is very less
    No/less onsite

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think management is never consider any advice from any one, unless it is published in some freakishly famous Management book.
    many of their policies and fundamentals are contradictory and I felt that company don't want people to stay with them after a period of time (may be3-5 years)
