A very active culture of "do it today", and the company is growing well as a result. This company is going places and it's fun to be part of the growth. People are smart and hardworking, and there's lots to learn - career prospects are promising for those who are patient and hard-working. Yes, they know how to throw a party and certainly make it a positive environment... If you can handle the pace. There's been a high turnover in sales execs, but that just goes in most companies when a sales rep misses his targets. Other departments don't have that problem.
With so many new people joining the company, everyone has to figure things out for themselves - there is so much to do that the more tenured staff cannot 'onboard' the newbies fast enough. So you either sink or swim. I managed to swim, but it meant long hours and a patient approach to figuring things out. As the company grows and the business has become more complex with the OEM relationships, the 'easy button' doesn't work so well and the business will likely need to restructure to manage that growth - so if you want to part of the exciting growth period you need to be flexible, patient and hardworking. It's worth it.
Advice to Management
Processes are lacking (such as who is responsible for what, and do they have the resources/skills to accomplish). We need a dedicated PMO team that is separate from other departments with project managers that can work across departments to get stuff done so things don't fall through the cracks. Everyone is so busy they can't manage other people's tasks, so we need project managers to track everything. Employees need effective downtime to avoid burnout - don't make every issue a priority #1 that results in long hours and constant stress. Finally, there's a little too much nepotism (no need to name names) that needs to be kept in check to maintain a culture of equality.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day – interviewed at Telogis.
Interview was a breeze, it seems like they relied more on feedback form my Staffing agency than they did myself during the interview.
My suggestion is to try and get a referral from someone who is a full-timer. This way you'll make full salary from the jump.
Otherwise, you'll be waiting line like myself for a permanent spot to open up.
