    Pros

    Company values, collaborative environment, ability to work across industries that you don't have experience while knowing there is a deep wellspring of talent willing and able to back you up, compensation model that is based on your actions and contributions to the growth of the company.

    The hiring processes are a double edged sword. They are very selective and so that means that you know you're getting grade-A talent, but it also means that getting hired is very difficult at SEI. That can lead to missed business opportunities when you don't have enough people to meet a need. But it also means that the people you're working with are top notch and trustworthy to go into a client. I've put this in the pro and the con section.

    Cons

    There can be many off-hours meetings that go above and beyond a regular company, but they're spaced out enough to not be too engrossing.

    If you don't buy into the collaborative nature of the company, of collective value, you will not be happy here, full stop. I don't see that as a con, per se, but I do understand some of the negative reviews that have come up. You really have to be a great fit to move forward.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Systems Evolution in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with 9 people before being given an offer. The process is very indepth to ensure that each hire is the right one. Think of it more as a conversation that goes into greater and greater detail the further along you go in the process.

    It was very rewarding and confirmatory.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing really threw me for a loop, but there were some good questions about how I'd handle a situation where I was thrown into an industry I had no experience in, or how I'd grow a client opportunity.

      They weren't difficult per se, but they definitely showed a desire to focus not just on delivery but on business development and your flexibility in potentially difficult situations.

    Negotiation Details
    Negotiations were straight forward. I knew my comp structure without having to ask and it was presented in such a fashion saying "this is what it is, we hope this won't be an issue. let's move forward with the interview process".

    Frankly I found it refreshing and unprecedented in all of the companies I've interviewed with over the past 18 years.
