    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Futurex full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have challenging work and spend time with good people who feel the same as I do. I'm not required to spend time in a lot of meetings and I'm not micromanaged. Everything else is gravy.

    Cons

    No job is perfect and anyone who says so is probably not looking at things fairly. I'm not going to make anything change by talking about it on the internet. My boss listens to my ideas (pets in the office anyone?) that way so they actually get heard.

    Advice to Management

    Keep me challenged and keep hiring people who feel the same way and you'll have an employee for life!

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Futurex (Bulverde, TX) in March 2015.

    Interview

    After an initial coding problem, which I had ample time to complete, I was invited to their campus for an on-site interview. First I talked one-on-one with one of the managers there who gave me a break down of what the company was all about, after which we briefly discussed my solution to the initial coding problem. Then I was put in a room and given a list of problems to work on for an hour, after which I discussed my solutions with 2 other hiring managers.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't remember most of the questions, but I do remember that they asked me to solve the fizz-buzz problem.   Answer Question
