    I worked at ECHELON CONSULTING full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Lots of exposure to various software engineering methodologies and technologies
    -Friendly environment and culture
    -Good pay for someone right out of college
    -Freedom to make the job path you want

    Cons

    -Not a ton of face to face client exposure
    -Maintenance of legacy applications for some long time clients

    Advice to Management

    -Continue to put trust in your employees. When given responsibility, it allows them to grow
    -While face to face client exposure for young software engineers can be risky, I think it would better benefit the growth of their consulting careers. You can kind of just feel like a code monkey if you are only building an application with out building the relationships with your client partners
    -Stay away from maintenance of legacy applications as much as you can.
    -Continue the small company culture feel! It's one of the greatest assets of the firm

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at ECHELON CONSULTING.

    Interview

    Applied at university career fair, and got a 30 min. interview the next day. This interview covered OOP and data structure concepts, and had two coding questions which you had to work out on a whiteboard. The next step was an online coding challenge which consisted of two multiple choice questions, and three coding questions. These questions were not too difficult, but they weighted the multiple choice questions the same as the long coding questions, so you got an get an abysmal score if you did well on the hard questions, but screwed up the easy ones. After completing the second round I emailed the company and didn't hear back until weeks later and told they were reviewing the final pool of candidates and would reach out in the following weeks. Fast forward a few more weeks, I emailed again and was immediately answered saying the positions had all been filled.
