    I have been working at ISE


    ISE is a great place to roll up your sleeves type of work environment. I've been with the company for 8+ years and enjoyed every bit of it. If you are looking for a challenging and fast work pace, this is a great place to consider. Managers are hands-on and serve as great mentors.

    The company values transparency and the staff are consistently updated with meeting notes from the Management Team and the CEO conducts town-hall meetings multiples times in the year to keep us updated on the business - both good and bad are discussed.

    There is some workplace flexibility and ISE cares about their employees and the family.

    Benefits and compensation are good.


    There really isn't much to say.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management team have done a great job communicating company information to the staff. Most managers are pretty flexible with days off or leaving early so long as you get your job done.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at ISE in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process involved meeting with several peers and hiring management. Parts of the interview were focused on detailed technical questions related to designs, configuration management as well as troubleshooting. If you answer the first portion of the questions correctly, the next management related questions are standard related to how you work with teams and peers. As well as reasons why you are seeking new/different employment.
