A Day in the Life of a Consultant

A Day In the Life of a Consultant
Brent joined our consulting team after receiving his master’s degree in Computational Science and Engineering from Georgia Tech  

  • Q: What do you like most about working at AirWatch?

  • A: From day one, I’ve had amazing opportunities to help build and grow a company. It’s crazy at times and definitely busy, but always fun, exciting and definitely rewarding. I also have to say, I love the people that I get to work with here. It’s a great team of young, smart people that make me look forward to coming to work every day.
  • Q: What have been some of your favorite projects?

  • A: I’ve worked on several projects throughout my time with AirWatch and I’ve traveled the world. One of the coolest offices I’ve seen has to be the Red Bull office in Santa Monica – or Urban Outfitters in Pennsylvania. I got to spend a week in Taiwan trying to win the business of Diageo. We succeeded, by the way. And they are still a client today. I recently was able to travel to Dubai to help expand our presence in the Middle East – what an amazing experience!
  • Q: What is the most challenging aspect of your career?

  • A: Engaging with clients on a day-to-day basis can be challenging. But it’s also one of the greatest parts of my job. It keeps the work exciting, and after 3.5 years, I still learn something new every day. I work with Fortune 500 companies using the latest technologies and security features available and I help them build solutions to deploy mobile devices across their entire enterprise. I’m literally helping to change the game for these companies, and that’s really cool.
  • Q: What surprised you about working at AirWatch?

  • A: I thought, as a first-year college graduate, that I would be doing a lot of grunt work – I wasn’t looking forward to it but I was willing to put in my time. I was so wrong. From the start, I was in meetings with the CEO, face-to-face with customers, and hands-on in shaping the direction of our technology. I felt like I made an impact right away. How many people get to say that about the first year of their career?

  • Q: What have been some of your favorite projects?

  • A: Every project is fun and exciting because they always bring new challenges. We’re continually working to improve our product and stay ahead of the competition – it’s a great feeling to be first-to-market with new and innovative technology developments.

  • Q: What is the most challenging aspect of your career?

  • A: Keeping up with the latest trends and innovations in software development is definitely challenging. The landscape of mobile technologies is continuously changing and evolving, with new devices, operating systems and heightened functionality. I can definitely say work is never boring and I always feel like I’m challenged and then rewarded for meeting those challenges.
  • Q: What surprised you about working at AirWatch?

  • A: There are far more opportunities for teaching (through lunch and learns), leadership and product ownership than I expected. It really makes a great environment for talented developers

    I worked at AirWatch full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, good benefits. They were starting to allow for some flexibility and working remote.

    Cons

    Management is often under qualified in the sales arena. All metric-driven, not a lot of room for strategy selling in SMB or Mid-Market. Base pay low.

    Senior Software Development Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at AirWatch (Atlanta, GA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by an internal Recruiter. We had a phone meeting for one hour. She set me up for a HackerRank exercise... first red flag.

    The exercise was not complex per se. They didn't even use a well documented exercise from HackerRank, but they wrote their own and the description of the problem was simply poor.

    *Aside from that, here is my take on this HackerRanks' tests and Senior Engineers.*

    When you are interviewing a SENIOR -that you can actually verify that has a career history with companies that are a megatrillion times bigger than your own company- please, show more respect and skip these stupid online tests.

    We SENIOR engineers DO NOT CARE (and this is specifically to whoever Millennial came up with this test because I can't think of a seasoned engineer using such a process) about solving your "fancy" gotcha exercise. We DO NOT CARE about how fast I can solve your "puzzle". That is not what software engineering is all about. Speed is not what makes you a GREAT developer. You got it all wrong. If that's what you're looking for, a speedy Gonzales developer that just came out of college then I see why THD is dumping your product like rotten tomatoes. I highly question your process because making an assessment of a SENIOR engineer out of two questions is a recipe for disaster.

    No wonder why you were awarded "Best Workplace for Millennials", which you flaunt like a badge of honor -it's quite the opposite. I question the leadership of this company allowing inexperienced egocentric individuals -Millennials- trying to show off by coming up with "puzzles" for a SENIOR position. Pitiful.

    Stop this nonsense. That's not how you get great developers. That's not what Software development is about. Have people in Atlanta come to your office and spend time with them pair programming, talking to them, etc. This whole HackerRank is hurting your organization. What? Are your Millennials too good to spend time with future candidates?

    By the way, I am in my 30s, I am not a 60 years old developer on a rant.
