    Pros

    Based on my experience over the last 15 years, I found that A players choose to stay with the company for the following reasons.

    Professional growth
    -Substantial responsibilities at an early stage of the career
    - Exposure to all aspects of delivery lifecycle and project management
    - Continuous learning
    Type of work
    - Exciting and challenging work
    - Exposure to the latest and varied technologies
    - Company culture (environment/culture/mindset)

    Transparency, lack of bureaucracy
    - Ownership and accountability
    - Autonomy (with seniority)
    - Peers with strong technical background
    - Supportive managers with technical know-how
    - There is never a dull moment (fast paced work)

    All of my coworkers with project management responsibilities hold Agile Certified Practitioner certification from Project Management Institute which requires study and exams. The company pays for technical certifications from PMI, Microsoft and Amazon Web Services.

    The company organizes Learning Hour every week. Employees attend annual Open House, local sporting events (mainly Soccer), Cirque du Soleil when they visit Marymoor Park, Redmond, WA. There is annual River Rafting trip at River Wenatchee in May.

    Cons

    As with any other employer in the consulting industry, there is pressure on engineers to stay current and learn new technologies every year. Customers expect a lot from us. Given the Agile and Lean practices, poor performers do not feel comfortable. Some of them leave on their own and others are moved out. The company believes in Work + Life + Self + Community integration. The company does not have workers that are blue collar that cannot take work home or bring home to work (idea behind work life balance).

    Advice to Management

    Since most employees join the company at the entry level after their engineering or MBA program, many are not aware of the workplace. The management should require new hires to review industry blogs and books on latest engineering techniques. I found that many new hires also benefited from "What I Did Not Learn at IIT" book by Rajeev Agarwal. That should be a required reading for all employees of the company so that they are aware of the industry and company practices.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at MAQ Software.

    Interview

    The interview process is fairly straight forward. They ask you to go to one of the meeting room and they will come in and ask you a simple algorithm question, after that if they like you the hiring management will come in the room and chat with you to see why you wanted to join them

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    They will call you and give you a day for two to make the decision
