    I worked at Altair Engineering full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working from home, great people, creative environment.

    Cons

    Not many, you might not get paid as much but the environment more than makes up for that. Increasing vacation time past 2 weeks takes longer than most companies.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Altair Engineering.

    Interview

    Submitted my resume and within a week they emailed me back setting up a time to come in. They didn't even care to talk, just come on in. I came in and was put into a cubicle with another person applying for the same job. They gave us two tests. The first one was a math/logic test which I understand since it's an engineering place but still odd. Javascript logic questions were tough, considering nowhere in the description was anything mentioned about using Javascript, or even HTML/CSS. The second was a test geared towards UX Design in doing wireframes for a fictional site. After that, I left and the other guy did his thing then left. They said they'd wrap up interviews in a week and get back to me. A week goes by and I email the HR contact. Nothing. I wait 2 more weeks. Nothing. Four more weeks later they post the job again. I contact a third and final time realizing there's not chance, but wanted to know what they were looking for. Nothing. Best part was there's a Chipotle about 10 minutes away, so post interview dinner was good.
