I worked at PROS full-time (less than an year)Pros
The people are all really great and the company really trains you well. Maybe the most structured training program I've seen. Very professional but friendly environment.Cons
The location in midtown Houston isn't ideal. It's kind of a not-so-nice part of town. Many people commute an hour each way, since they don't want to live in the area.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO

had 1 phone interview with an engineer, technical, 1 coding question about input file scanning, then sorting it.
1 followup interview, was supposed to be onsite, but due to school conflicts this was also a phone interview. Another technical interview with a coding question about "shuffling" a list of songs
