100% of the CEO
I have been working at MAK Technologies full-time for more than 3 years
Pros – The people there (developers) are smart and capable, the culture is good, and the technology is cutting edge if you want defense simulation.
Cons – Defense is a tough market place right now with budgets being cut - they're trying to expand beyond defense, not there yet. Also, the parent company ownership is difficult.
Advice to Senior Management – Get new ownership! (Easier said than done.)
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I worked at MAK Technologies full-time for less than a year
Pros – Nice and friendly people.
Good benefits and work life balance.
Every one is really helpful. Upper management is fine until a level.
Cool as long as you are doing your work !
Cons – Growth is bad right now..and lot of people were laid off recently.
The company is striving to survive right now.
Risky since their line of products is very narrow and dependent on single market.
– I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked at MAK Technologies
Pros – The developers are fun to work with.
You do get a lot of autonomy as a developer.
You get exposure to responsibilities companies usually don't give their developers, namely interacting with customers directly.
Cons – Salary and career growth potential were just not there.
I felt my career was becoming incredibly stagnant during my time there, and people that should have been promoted weren't.
There was lots of personnel 'repurposing' due to problems in scheduling projects.
Culture and benefits were eroding during my time there.
Advice to Senior Management – Nurture your developers and encourage them to grow. Be willing to take risks, but also communicate to employees in a friendlier way.
