    I worked at RedZone Robotics (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Small enough company for an individual to affect change. Great benefits - Med/Vis/Dent/Hosp, company works on yearly benefits decisions as a group entity. No managers breathing down your neck to complete tasks. Valid, metric based bonuses and raises. Fresh ground coffee, Keurig, subsidized vending machines in office, and many teas available. No issues with headphones. New upper management seems more focused. Giant lot to park in makes it easy to get there, park, and get to work while knowing your car's safe from burglary and scratches or dings for the day.

    Cons

    The worst part about this company is that it always have an "are we still going to be open next week?" feeling. Every project was questionable on revenues generating ability. There's not much "on the job" learning and it feels like what you were hired for is what you can plan to retire still doing. No focus on personal development and growth. The benefits have gone downhill a bit thanks to Obamacare. Actual yearly bonuses seemed to peek at about 4-5% and only actually occurred about every 2-3 years. Otherwise company was in a "spending freeze" conveniently during every yearly bonus, while hiring new assets and taking on more negative revenues jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the "sky is falling" attitudes and discussions so your employees feel more secure. Put some time and effort into process management. Definitely offer some "personal and professional growth" opportunities.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at RedZone Robotics in August 2014.

    Interview

    Fairly technical interview that I aced, and the manager gave the go-ahead to my staffing company to hire me as a contract-to-hire. I had the offer letter in my hand and then a VP at Redzone pulled the plug and said they didn't want me. This was EXTREMELY unprofessional of them. I was not impressed with the work environment (bullpen, not even a cubicle farm) and the place was a mess, not organized in the least. They didn't know that I knew this at the time, but the position was a backfill for a guy they decided that they didn't need, then canned, but in actuallity the REALLY did need him.

    Interview Questions

    • Not difficult, but I was asked to write some code to interface with a temperature sensor board, using a library I'd never seen before.   1 Answer
