    Pros

    - As you expect in a consulting firm, you get to work on different technology stacks on different projects.
    - It's a small company. Therefore, you can make a big impact. You get the chance to develop enterprise level softwares end to end. Given its size, you also have a lot of interactions with senior management, including the CEO and the founders of the company.
    - It has a good culture. Everyone in the company is willing to help. You will get mentoring from more experienced coworkers. There are happy hours every Friday afternoon. There are free snacks, fruits, and beverages available in the office whenever you need a quick recharge. There is a weekly team lunch, etc.
    - The pay is decent for fresh graduates.
    - Good work/life balance in general.

    Cons

    - There isn't a formal training program.
    - Given the size of the company, the opportunities to further develop your career are limited.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more opportunities for employees to continue to learn and grow.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ECHELON CONSULTING (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    There were three separate rounds. I met with Echelon during a career fair at my University. After talking to a recruiter there, I was offered a first round interview on campus the next day. The first round was a 30 minute interview, starting off with talking to a couple current employees. They ask basic time and memory complexity and fizz buzz questions. After that, they ask you to do a problem on the whiteboard (I believe mine was related to how to tell if all opened brackets ([{}]) were properly closed or not).
    I received an offer for a second round interview through email about a week after. They invited me to take a coding test online at Test Dome. There were 6 different questions with a max of 45 minutes each. These included SQL questions, time and memory complexity questions, find the bug, and a couple implement a class that solves this problem. Overall most of the questions were easy to medium in difficulty with one hard question.
    I heard back from Echelon through email a week after to set a time for a third on site interview. There was 4 - 5 hours of interviews, with four separate interviews in total. There are two primarily social and fizz buzz question interviews with seniors and the ceo. One interview will go over your online test and ask you to discuss or fix any questions you got wrong. One will also do two whiteboard problems. Afterwards, we were treated to dinner with some of the employees.
    Overall I had a very positive experience while interviewing. The questions were challenging but not ridiculous. They responded promptly to all my communications and treated me professionally while on site.
