    I have been working at MicroSeismic full-time for more than 3 years


    I love the people of MicroSeismic Inc. I feel lucky to have worked with such a bunch of kind, smart, fun people. There is a small company familiarity between employees of all levels and many employees meet socially outside of work. VPs and Management are commonly seen chatting and joking with production employees on a first name or nickname basis. The sharing of ideas is strongly encouraged for all employees. The benefits are very nice for the whole company and for the Denver office, you get a RTD pass and a parking space downtown. The company is flexible about core hours and time commitments outside of work for example I was allowed to regularly keep a later start to the day so that I could attend my prefered exercise class.


    The workload is challenging and time consuming. After hours work happens... alot. This doesn't happen all the time but I was warned when I signed up, and have found it to be true that things can get very fast paced working here, and there will be some all-nighters.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication between departments would increase efficiency. Continue to encourage inter-departmental socialization and communication. Technical documentation, training and internal information distribution should be improved.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 days - interviewed at MicroSeismic.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed separately by five different people. It was a half day process. There was some confusion regarding what position I was interviewing for, but it was clarified before I left. Less than a week after I interviewed, I received a phone call telling me they were going to offer me the position. I received the offer a couple of days later. I think this was a much shorter process for me than for most people.
