    I have been working at Luth Research

    Pros

    Very friendly people work here in general. Casual work environment. Offers promotions from within to those who are qualified, and Luth Research prefers to promote from within (that's how I got my current position). Many opportunities to learn new skills in a fast paced industry. This is the type of place where having a good attitude can take you a long way. I don't feel like I'm being 'micro-managed', which is good because I think of myself as an independent worker. There were some periods of employee turnover a few months back, but this seemed to have stabilized more recently. Lots of free snacks, coffee, espresso, bottled water, & treats from clients. Pretty flexible when it comes to work-life events, but there is a little red-tape to go through to get schedule adjustments, or time off. Company lets workers tele-commute from home during bad weather events. Work-load can get busy at times, but our team always reaches out to one another to help out where needed.

    Cons

    Company does provide basic benefits to full time employees, although I would like to see better 401K benefits (earlier eligibility + percentage matching contributions), and other perks that let employees have a stake in the future of the company (such as private stock offerings or profit sharing - the key to keeping people around long term). Parking can be a hassle sometimes especially if you show up later, but the company does re-reimburse full-time employees for street parking on a daily basis. The building is somewhat of a maze with segmented work areas. You can go days on end before seeing the same person who works in the room right next to yours. This is counter intuitive to the new 'agile' work-place design which is more of an open workspace.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Luth Research has an 'email' type communication culture, which can lead to workplace 'fragmentation'. I rarely see the individual I report to face to face (twice a week at best). I think it's important for upper management to interact with their staff face to face, not to micromanage the work-place, but to build familiarity and solidarity amongst the team, which ultimately leads to a work place that's based on chemistry. I would like to have 'reviews' on regular basis (every quarter) just to see where I stand with upper management, and to get feedback on areas where I can improve and grow. Everyone should be involved in seeing the 'big-picture' of projects so that they know what they are work on an working towards. I sometimes feel that I'm handed a task to complete, but I'm not made familiar with how the task I'm working on fits into the overall scope of a larger project. Not sure if the reason behind this is due to time constraints, or if management prefers to have people only focus on their areas of responsibility.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Luth Research.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was extremely long with many many steps, phone calls, tests, and in person meetings with many different people. I have dreaded interviewing after this experience. There was a call with the hiring manager, then a call with the owner, then a call with the supervisor then a test then an in person.
