    Exciting and engaging place to work, though often chaotic and with few opportunities for career growth

    I worked at Applied Minds

    Pros

    Lots of interesting projects, this is a unique and fascinating workplace. Some very smart people work there. Your mileage may vary depending on what project you work on and who you work under, though.

    Cons

    Little room for career growth. Most people are contractors and thus second class citizens and it takes a couple years to get to employee for most people; most people never get there, though, and pass through on this or that project. Once you make employee you work on one project after the next without much opportunity to move into a technical management position. The work is so interesting and fast paced that this can be ok for many people, though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do more to promote staff development. Formalize the process by which people can help initiative spin-offs based on successful inventions. Provide support for employees to attend conferences and present at conferences.

    Intern - Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Interview Details

    I responded to a call for applications and received a response that I should reserve specific dates for interviews. Then I received notice that the process was delayed. Then I received notice that they had not figured out their summer projects and hiring needs. Then I finally heard that they did not have projects that needed mechanical engineering interns, even though they had originally requested such applicants.
