    Pros

    A company that's growing exponentially, forward-thinking management, empowering environment, excellent benefits, great culture, good people and top-notch product that is in high demand. No one is looking over your shoulder and micro-managing at Plex. Employees are treated with respect and given the freedom to devise their own solutions. You come as you please, you work as you please, and you leave as you please. As long as you're intelligent and do quality work on time, this is one of the best--if not the best--places to work in Michigan and in the U.S.

    Cons

    Better salary for entry-level positions, but there are opportunities for bonuses and raises throughout the year. Like any other job you have to prove yourself before you deserve to make the big bucks.

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Plex Systems, Inc..

    Interview

    I went through 4 interviews for this position: basic phone interview, then a 2nd phone interview with the customer support manager in California, next an on site interview with the customer support manager in Troy, and a final phone interview with the VP of customer care. The interviews were set up quickly, and I felt they went really well. All interviews lasted 30 minutes to an hour.

    What I found extremely unprofessional was the fact that I had to keep reaching out to them for about a month for them to give me an answer on their decision. I don't mind letting a company know I am interested at all but they kept saying things like "sorry, we are finishing up some interviews this week" instead of just saying they "decided to move forward"..

    So just be aware if you don't get the position, they won't tell you unless you ask them more than once. They'll give you the run around and get your hopes up. This is the reason why I'm giving them a negative review.
