    I have been working at Optimal Solutions Group, LLC full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Optimal provides an excellent menu of health insurance plans (PPO, HMO, and HSA) and provides generous employer contributions resulting in minimal costs to most employees. This is exceptional compared with a lot of organizations.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons, Optimal's other fringe benefits are great too: 401k thru pet insurance.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Optimal Solutions Group, LLC in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    This company's reviews are quite bad but I applied anyway. General take-away: very disjointed process.

    Applied for the position through email and was contacted a couple of days later by a secretary. I interviewed over the phone a week later with some researchers. They were very polite and we had good conversation about my skills and what I could bring to the company. As individuals, they were very professional. Mostly discussed research experience and how I work in a team.

    The next step was to talk to the company's CEO. I was then contacted by a completely different researcher who was scheduling the interview on behalf of the CEO. We had a phone conversation, where he was mostly looking for cultural fit. He wasn't that social and I didn't get a good vibe from him. He contradicted the researchers I spoke with previously and was quick to downplay some of the benefits they had mentioned.

    He then asked me to fill out a very long and detailed application and send it to the HR manager, who would then pass it on to more senior researchers in the company. The application was a little unorganized and completely unnecessary given that I'd already gone through two interview rounds. The application just asked for the same information that was in my resume.

    As you can see, multiple people involved in the process, most not from HR/recruiting and a different point of contact as you progress. I didn't follow up and never heard back.
