1. Benefit Package is excellent.
2. Management and the CEO want to get to know you and make an effort to. You are not just a worker; you are family!
3. Management and the CEO have an open door policy.
4. The company values are very close to my own: Honestly, Respect, Responsibility, Integrity, Initiative..
5. The company is employee focused which is great for the employee and our clients.
6. The employee engagement committee works hard to provide fun activities and company outings for all employees: company holiday parties, company picnics, potlucks, pie contests, Andesa on the Move, and company wide walks.
7. Andesa gives back to the community and encourages all employees to become involved.
8. The work is challenging, but everyone is supportive and eager to lend a helping hand.
9. Your managers will work with you if you express the desire for career advancement within the company. They want you to succeed, accomplish your goals and grow.
10. The founding principles discussed in John Walker’s book still hold true to today.

One thing I would like to see is an improved balance between the benefits package and the pay rate.
Advice to Management
Please do not forget why you are here and what you are respresenting. Always stay true to the founding values and continue to build a company who truely appreciates their employees.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Andesa Services (Sarasota, FL) in August 2016.
I was first contacted by a recruiter via email after sharing my resume with a colleague, after a first call where we went through my resume, skills, and a few behavioral questions he set up a phone interview with 2 engineering directors. They asked a few easy technical questions about Java and Databases. After that, I was asked to come to their office at Sarasota for an in-person interview. There I went through about 4 rounds: First with 2 engineers that asked me about my resume and some coding questions on the board, the second round with another engineer that just asked me about me resume, then third round with 2 of engineering managers that asked me mostly behavioral questions and finally with the VP of the company that asked me many behavioral questions. I felt pretty confident with the overall process but I was told 2 weeks after that they decided to move forward with another candidate that had more experience with Java.
