    I have been working at Ampirical Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Great work life balance. Because of Ampirical is still a relatively small company that is growing; I have a greater exposure to responsibilities outside of the typical scope of my role. i.e. I am not a specialist. I get to touch more aspects of a project than I have in previous roles with much larger companies. This means I am more well rounded and have a better chance to grow. Case in point, I have been here for a little over a year, and I have been promoted. My supervisor provides feedback of my work, which allows me to know where I stand/know what I need to improve upon.

    Cons

    Location. My only complaint is my commute.

    Electrical Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Mandeville, LA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Ampirical Solutions (Mandeville, LA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I talked with the recruiters at my career fair. I really liked that they had actual engineers there recruiting. Then I was called for an interview at their office in Mandeville (There was also a Skype option.) The interview was very laid back. I met with two engineers. They explained to me what Ampirical does and what I would be expected to do during the summer.
