I have been working at MAVERICK Technologies full-time (more than 5 years)Pros
The pros with Maverick start with the senior leadership, who definitely take much more time / energy than is "strictly necessary" to build relationships with employees, even in offices that aren't particularly closely located to HQ. Mid-level managers are hardworking, practical, and understanding. They will pick up the phone and listen when you have a question or concern. The bulk of the engineering staff are GREAT to work with. There is a definite workplace camaraderie that would be difficult to find elsewhere.
The work is extremely varied, with opportunities existing in a variety of fields and across many process control platforms & technologies. To be clear, not every project is a pleasure to work on, but management is very responsive to personal needs and preferences, so bad situations can be as temporary as possible. Maverick managers do understand that people have limitations and will not simply work you to burnout.
Self-motivation & independent thinking isn't just "preferred" - I'd go so far as to say that these are almost requirements to thriving in this organization. There is definitely an atmosphere where everyone with good ideas will be listened to.Cons
There are times where circumstances dictate that you can't select the control platforms / customers / industries / project type for your project portfolio. This dictates a certain flexibility from the employee to be patient with his/her assignments and communicate clearly what career goals they would like to pursue with management. This point really comes with the territory in this industry.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Mid-level managers (Operations Mangers, Process Managers) may need to be more aggressive about reaching out to employees to "check the pulse" from time to time. This is particularly applicable to younger resources who may not understand that the "open door" policy among management is more than a marketing gimmick.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
