    Pros

    Good working environment with cutting edge technology and matured processes to work. The head of software engineering likes to hire only Indian contractors/employees and has issues with Americans. He may be above his head. CIO has a great vision and has been executing it with knowledgeable executive staff(mostly contractors) but I have never seen sharp people who are invested so much time with a customer. Kudos to them and the CIO!! .

    Cons

    It is difficult to see no software engineering practices from Head of Software Engineering and as a PM I found it difficult to digest. He is currently promoted to Dy CIO I heard.... QA function has seen many bad managers in the last one year so QA needs to be fixed as well...

    Advice to Management

    Move Dy CIO to another role.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Arizona Department of Education in June 2014.

    Interview

    Was recruited by vendor Learningmate. Interview process was a little tough. They asked me to do to whiteboard and diagram code. But, guess that weeds out poor performers. From first interview, had 2 more tech screens with only final interview at ADE. Took a long time from final interview to start date. Background check took a full week. Other than that, all was smooth

    Interview Questions

    • whiteboard. Fibonacci question on how to program -- ha ha always best to remember indexes. tough when you're at whiteboard.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    a little with vendor, but overall not much. Got benefits -- 401k and medical type stuff. better benefits than previous vendor.
