Good place to start a career

Software Engineer (Former Employee) Kansas City, MO

ProsLarge, vey rapidly growing company.
Accurate performance reviews and compensation increases based on review.
Well organized and easy interview process.
Good orientation and training program.
Cafeteria food is decent in all campuses but any decent restaurant is at least 20 minutes away.
Decent fitness centers available.
This company is highly profitable and it shows.
Hiring lots of new young people.
Will most likely be using Java, but maybe C++ or other language.

ConsHealth insurance plan has $1400 deductible, some of which you can earn back by completing certain health improvement tasks.
45 to 50 hour work weeks, but not as bad as some previous reviews have suggested.
Will expect to you have knowledge that is not normally taught in school.
Try to figure out which campus you'll be working at or you may have a long commute. Overland park is a good place to live if you're at innovations. Six-month lease probably better than 12 month.
Don't think about living in KC without a car. Bike paths or public transportation are non-existant.

Advice to Senior ManagementRelocation reimbursement is too low for people moving in from other states. This company does not seem to have an in-house QA deparment and relies too much on engineers not to introduce bugs, although this is just a perception and may not be fact.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
