    Pros

    The place is a great place to work. The job itself is good but the best thing about Maverick Technologies is the people. There are excellent personalities here and there is no feeling of intimidation. The management staff really knows how to run this office the right way.

    Cons

    Traffic is a bummer, but that's a given living in southern California. Benefits could probably be better, but everyone says that about their employer.

  2. Awesome Team Culture

    Pros

    The number one reason I've stayed with the company for over a decade is the quality of the people who work here. I know that whatever project I'm assigned to, I'll have people working alongside me who are skilled, dedicated, share knowledge without reservation, and have my back. Management is sometimes spread thin, but they try hard to let us get the job done right.

    Compensation seems to be average, overall, with salaries seeming to be a little lower than average, but benefits being a little higher. Promotions and raises are sometimes a bit slow, but they are fairly applied.

    MAVERICK's client list is diverse, which both brings opportunities for working in different and interesting industries, and helps the company weather the ups and downs of specific industries over the years.

    Cons

    Total compensation is average. Communication from mid-level management can be less than ideal at times. Travel assignments can be extended and abrupt. Work/life balance is better than many similar employers, but still is a common struggle.

    Advice to Management

    Work at keeping teams up to date with relevant information. Continue working to improve compensation and work/life balance. Be careful not to bog employees down with increasing bureaucracy.

    Pros

    All of the people I've met at Maverick are friendly and great to work with. They have an emphasis on working safely and efficiently. Other coworkers are happy to help you if you don't understand how something works or if you need help.

    Cons

    Some times there is a lot of work and other times there isn't much. You will have to travel for some contracts, which isn't always a bad thing if you are prepared for it or willing to move.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Fun, challenging, enabling. 14 years with this company, and it's still interesting.

    Pros

    Your value to this company is based on your dedication and performance. You work hard and do a good job, and they will make sure you know it and are treated accordingly. Some projects are simple, giving you a break. Some projects are pretty demanding, giving you an opportunity to excel and feel productive. You get compensated for every hour worked - unusual for an engineering professional. There are two distinct advantages to this. If you have to work more, you get compensated. The other advantage is management can't just over-work employees to make extra money. You constantly learn new things and grow professionally no matter how long you are here. There is a high level of transparency and communication up and down the chain. Still a small enough feel that you know all your managers, up to the CEO level, and they know you. If you don't like something, or have an idea, or a general comment, they will listen to you.

    Cons

    In this field, you don't learn everything you need in college. Plan on continuing to learn from day 1 here.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support the growth of your employees, they are your primary assets. Keep the work hard - play hard mentality.

    Pros

    Who wants to give up their college degree after pregnancy? Who wants to leave their kids at day care during infancy? I get the best of both worlds thanks to Maverick Technologies. They trust their employees, and you reap what you sow. I get to be a part of a supportive team, I am involved in engaging work, and it is constantly evolving to something more challenging and rewarding. My job scope is mentally stimulating, and that is important to help keep my mind sharp in my world of bottles and diapers! The management is very cooperative and supportive to help me through balancing my career and motherhood. I couldn't ask for more!

    Cons

    I am working all day - frequently switching hat from Engineer to Mother. So it is important that there's balance between work and play

    Advice to Management

    Maintain the "small size" feel while growing into a big company, so employees remain important and not turn into just another worker bee.

    Pros

    I have had the ability to learn and grow my career without having to change companies. MAVERICK has invested in me and I am invested with them. I love coming to work each day as the people are great and we all work together as a team. I can't image working anywhere else.

    Cons

    It is a challenging job that is difficult at times, but having others in the company to lean on has been great. There are new challenges everyday, which can be stressful at times.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide an atmosphere for employees to learn and grow. Never lose the small company feel as we grow into a larger company.

    Pros

    I have almost 40 years of experience in the engineering/integration field and Maverick is the best company I've ever worked for. You get to work on multiple projects each year, therefore you aren't stuck in a rut doing the same thing over and over. Also, management is very approachable and listens to your ideas or suggestions.

    Cons

    The only challenge with the job is dealing with tight schedules sometimes.
