    Pros

    Some of the management people are fantastic; they listen to concerns, explain things as necessary, don't have totally unreasonable expectations, etc. As of the time I left in 2014, this includes the head of HR, Sales VP, and Finance Director, as specifically great people.

    Location at Cityplace is literally on top of a DART station, so taking the train worked out REALLY well for me.

    Free drinks (sodas, water, coffee) all the time in the break room.

    Cons

    Overtime expected during high-stress times, generally on a quarterly schedule.

    VERY unstable number of sales reps, with high turnover. The ones who stick it out generally stay for a long time and are well-compensated, but there's only a few of those.

    Not a lot of career advancement available. There is SOME, but very limited. Raises are available without getting a title change, but not guaranteed annually.

    Advice to Management

    Just because someone was good at a job doesn't automatically mean they will be good at SUPERVISING people doing that job.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Zix (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    It was a one on one interview with a manager. There was a coding section, a design section, and an agile development section. There was also an architecture and language structure understanding portion. The goal mostly seemed to be to confirm a technical understanding and background, as well as a willingness to learn, be flexible, and be able to communicate effectively.
