I have been working at Computer Design and Integration full-time (Less than a year)
CDI is going through a lot of great changes, and the outlook is on the up and up. Lots of new talent is being hired to create processes and help the organization navigate through some things that come up as part of the recent growth. I can tell that the priority is definitely to find a way to scale up successfully.
The culture here is very much like a startup: very family-oriented, and also entrepreneurial. it's great for people who are willing to roll up their sleeves to get the job done. Very flat organization... there are people at all levels are working side by side, so if you're looking for an organization with structured hierarchy, this is not it. There's a lot of work to be done and oftentimes that involves around-the-clock-hustle, but the whole team pulls together to reach goals and exceed expectations. It's really like working for a big family.
-Great work/life balance
-annual company trip
-love my coworkers
-management is really friendly and hardworking
There are a lot of 'growing pains' to work through (i.e., process around reviews, salary increases, etc.), but I'm hopeful that the recent hiring of HR will help to smooth those out.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Computer Design and Integration (Teterboro, NJ) in November 2012.
One phone interview followed by one in-person interview with direct report management. Very relaxed atmosphere during the in-person interview with discussion on technical aspects of the job as well as overall career plans. Nothing too difficult or complicated however I was interviewing for a Jr role.
