"Fantastic journey"

Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

Pros

Was here for 2 years and learned a lot. Being in IT, I was able to interact/work with all levels of the company. Didn’t matter what position that person was but he/she did not hesitate to roll those

Cons

Can be challenging due to so many projects but CTI has a way of challenging their employees technically without challenging them personally. But honestly, if you want a mediocre “job”, then no need

Advice to Management

Keep the “open door” policy going. Having the senior leadership be a Slack message away empowers everyone and the culture will keep progressing.

  1. Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview
    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at CTI (United States) in Mar 2020

    Interview

    After I applied, they reached out right away to set up a phone screen with two software engineers, who were very friendly. The meeting went well, though they seemed fuzzy on some of the details of the company. For example, when I asked why they have so many offices with so few employees, the answer was "Huh. I'm not sure." Their descriptions make the company come across as a general purpose contracting company with a vague focus on defense.

    They asked me to do a "take-home" assignment that I was supposed to spend four hours on, though they gave me 48 hours over a weekend to complete it. The assignment was a combination of an abstract system design question with a coding portion, a testing portion, and some sort of proof that I know how to use version control. I've never seen anything quite like it. The prompt was extremely vague and encouraged me to "ask questions!" However, since this was take-home and a weekend, that wasn't possible.

    Normally, abstract system design interviews consist of a back-and-forth between a candidate and an interviewer. The candidate is given a vague prompt and is supposed to ask (the right) clarifying questions and come up with a workable design. This was not possible because I had no one to ask, so I was left asking and answering my own questions and effectively interviewing myself. I came up with a parameters for the problem, use cases, a working design and implemented a small portion of the code (they recommended spending an hour), and also wrote tests (another hour) and a detailed design document including diagrams.

    After a week, they sent a form response saying they decided not to go forward. I asked for feedback and they said they couldn't get the code to run and said I shouldn't have used Python, but something "more generic". I'm not sure what "more generic" means in that context, but I believe they are a Java shop, so I do not recommend answering their questions with Python even though they say that's fine. Overall, it was not a positive experience.
    Interview

    I agreed with the company that I wouldn't give out details of the interview questions.
