I have been working at MAQ Software full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Interesting projects to work on
Flexibility to move if you're unhappy with the work you're doing
Lots of work, you don't have to worry about being bored and on the bench
Smart and fun coworkers make the work enjoyable

Cons

A lot of the core development work is done in the India offices so the team in Redmond acts more as project managers and technical PMs. If you're looking for a job that's 100% heads down coding, this probably isn't the best company for you.

    Okay if you have zero experience, never stay more than 6 months or a year

    Pros

    Easy to get in to
    Lots of learning (as you will be expected to work exhorbitant amounts)

    Cons

    Need to be in the office early, but you also have to be on the phone late with offshore team
    The second it makes them more money, they will throw your career under the bus in favor of their own interests
    "Excellence" is expected, meaning you will probably never hear a compliment or get a "job well done" but you will certainly hear about it quick enough when you mess up.
    Management doesn't care about what you want for your own career path, they just railroad you into whatever will make them the best profit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees more often, instead of thinking you know what's best. Sometimes, what is best for the employee and the company might be different things, and you should bring this to light and try to work with employees, not just railroad them into things that they hate until they finally quit. There is a reason your turnover is so high - you don't even bother to ask your employees about nearly anything, even regarding their own career path!

    Pros

    MAQ Software is filled with very smart employees that are able to carry their own weight and provide support when needed. The projects that we work on are pretty cool and we get to work with folks that make the work fun.
    It's nice that the company is big enough that there are plenty of resources for you to rely on, but still small enough that you can make a big change and your ideas can be heard by senior management. It's not difficult to make a big impact in the company.

    Cons

    As deadlines approach, the pressure can be a little intense but smart planning and competence will help minimize this aspect
