I worked at Amunix full-time
If you are straight out of college this job is a good place to start. The pay may not be comparable to the big companies, but you will get a lot of hands on experience with many different techniques. I did not realize how valuable this was until I saw how repetitive other jobs at my level can be. Everyone will have the opportunity to spearhead some new process development work. I feel very well prepared for a career in this industry because of my experiences at Amunix.
--Free Lunches (every day)
--Lots of snacks available all day
--Cool people; I made a ton of great friends there
Amunix is in a really exciting position right now. If they play their cards right the stock options could be worth quite a lot. That's all uncertain though, so I'm not sure if that is a pro or con.
The biggest one is the salary. They really underpay their employees. Hopefully they are able to improve on that in the future. They have been trying to make up for this with stock options, but that's not as good as money in your pocket for people who have student debt to pay off.
-- Your projects constantly change (I once when 6 months without finishing a project because they all kept getting canceled. This is really frustrating because you feel like nothing you've done for the past few months matters).
Advice to Management
Pay you're employees a competitive salary.
I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Amunix (Mountain View, CA) in June 2014.
Sub-par - I felt that the hiring manager had personality issues, temper problem? She was not patient, annoyed and unprofessional. She clearly was someone I would not have liked to work with...;(
