One of the best reasons to work for Amentra is the constantly evolving work. During my time there I got to use over 4 languages and got priceless Enterprise Application design experience. There is always a new project, with different technologies.
Not all offices are created equal. If you are willing to travel you will get to work on exciting projects. If you are not willing to travel then you have the chance to get put on some boring projects. Projects also very by location, so some cities like D.C. have really exciting projects, but towns like Richmond are not so much fun.
Advice to Management
Need to create a consistent office environment. The company is growing fast, and they need to make sure operationally they are growing faster.
I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Amentra (Washington, DC) in November 2011.
Amentra/Red Hat had probably the best interview process that I have been a part of. First I got a phone interview where we discussed my experience and the company in general. From there they invited me out to DC for a 2 day interview process. The first day is a dinner with all of the other applicants that have made it that far and current Amentra employees of various job titles and statuses withing the company. They use this a character/personality judgement and you really get to experience the company culture. The next day you get a presentation about the company, what they do, who the clients are, etc, while eating lunch. Then you have 2 1:1 interviews. The interviews can be technical or more laid back based on the interviewer, but overall not too bad.
You get to pick whichever location you would like, so have that in mind when you go into the interviews.
