    Pros

    Amazing place to work. The on-site amenities are unbelievable. The company sells top flight gear and has an amazing training program for sales engineers.

    Cons

    There really aren't a lot of downsides. Sometimes the hours were a little odd when working on special projects, but even that was pretty tolerable.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. I know you have been doing a lot of expanding, and that makes it easy to lose sight of who you are as a company. Make sure that doesn't happen.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Sweetwater.

    Interview

    It was an intense, day-long interview. Aside from silly HR tests, it was a fun day, including lunch with senior management as well as my future coworkers. I expected the interview to be a few hours long but it turned into a full day affair.
