STG really cares about their employees. Whenever I've had a problem, management has given it personal attention. They don't just listen, they act on problems and issues to get them resolved to the best of their ability.
I love the combination of stability and new experiences. It isn't for everyone; if you want the same job forever, you won't be happy here. In my past experience in the computer industry, I changed jobs every three years anyway, and having the bench in between takes a lot of stress off of supporting my family.
It can be difficult to maintain a company culture when you're employees are spread all along the Wasatch Front, but STG does a great job. Account managers visit you on site 1-2 times per month, and they have quarterly activities like nice dinners, bowling, and a zoo trip. They're very family oriented and will bend over backwards to make sure you have a good work- life balance.
Compensation is on the high end compared to other places I've worked. STG is also the only place that has given me regular raises. Reviews are two- way, giving me a chance to give feedback as well, and are low stress and focused on positive improvement. They don't penalize you for not meeting all your annual goals, but instead focus on what changed and improved.
Bottom line: highly recommended. I've never felt like a number here.
The insurance is adequate but not awesome. Because they are a smallish company, they don't get great rates. We have a high (very high) deductible plan. It isn't STG's fault though. They work hard to do the best for their employees.
Advice to Management
Keep up the great work! Please don't lose sight of the personal touch with employees as we grow. I worry a little that the focus on growth may reduce the wonderful family feel we have. Already, none of the new admin assistants know my name even though they talk to me regularly on the phone or email. I miss the old personal touch there and hope it doesn't spread.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week – interviewed at Software Technology Group (UT) (Salt Lake City, UT).
It depends on whether you're interviewed by a developer, or manager. You will interview with STG, initially, and I didn't consider that interview very difficult, although that would likely depend on the position they're considering you for. You need to be able to talk intelligently about development, and be very honest about where your strengths and weaknesses are. Usually, you'll need to interview with a client, as well, prior to being hired. Each client interview is different, because that is completely up to them. So you'll need to brush up on your interview skills, even if you passed the STG interview with flying colors, and be ready for client interviews, every time you start with a new client.
- I can't honestly remember. It was quite long ago, but if memory serves, it was a question on threading that stumped me, since I hadn't done much of it, and most of my experience had been web based. Answer Question
