    I have been working at PC-Doctor full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very smart co-workers. Another reviewer said the people here could walk in to Google and get a job. I can vouch for that.
    Friendly environment, feels like a "stable start-up".
    Lots of company activities and outings.
    Interesting work utilizing current technologies.
    Team-based environment, where we work for each other instead of against each other (i.e. no silos). I point this out because it's in stark contrast to my previous employer.
    Generous time off, flexible time and scheduling.
    On-site kitchen with company-provided snacks, soft drinks, fruit, etc.

    Cons

    There isn't a lot of time to train new employees, so you really do need to "hit the ground running".
    Occasional stints of overtime. Fortunately, this is very infrequent.
    People really like it here, which limits your upward mobility to some extent. As a career engineer this isn't a big deal to me, but it might be something to consider if you have aspirations of being "the management".
    It's a smaller company, so the benefits for families with children are more expensive than they would be at a large corporation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Chisel out time for the current employees to build training materials and documentation for new hires. Other than that, this place is awesome.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Reno, NV
    Anonymous Employee in Reno, NV
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at PC-Doctor in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had mixed experience. I decided not to pursue the final, in-person interview round. First, felt that after interviewing me for 4.5 hours total, by then, having coding and Java interview done extensively, the company should NOT have invited me for, yet, another 5 hour interview. Secondly, I felt that company wasn't honest about travel requirements for the position. Also, I felt that they were forwarding me to a position that wasn't preferred for me, while they had another, actually lower level, position that I was more qualified for.

    I had extensive written Java test/problem solving part, covering many general topics, done on time. Also, had phone Java and computer science phone screen and Collab/online coding part. Total of over 4.5 hours. They wanted me to come in for 5-hour technical interview....Really--how much distrust a company can have in people? I think that 4.5 of pure technical screen may warrant may be 2-hour final interview at most. I refuse to deal with companies that require 9 hours of interviews for mediocre salary, by the way. This is unfair and paranoid and distrustful on the part of the company. Have a little trust in people! On the positive side, their interviewing engineer sounded pretty friendly/relaxed on the phone and was courteous/polite.
