    I worked at EMA Design Automation full-time (Less than a year)


    It's a really great job to take on when you are fresh out of college in terms of getting your hand in multiple venues. Most of my coworkers were really great to be with and hang out with and helpful in different departments.


    Management- Where do I begin. Although it has to be written, it’s hard to write.
    There are certain individuals that do SO MUCH WORK. Probably more than their pay grade. This person should have a higher position within the company because they are in the office, local, and knows the marketing aspect of the industry. They work overtime and are so drudged down with things that they, unfortunately, shouldn’t be doing because there superior doesn’t even know how to do it.

    Upper management -I enjoy them. They are funny in and outside of work, and knows what they are talking about when it comes to technical aspects of computers. But putting this aside, I don’t believe they should be in the position that they are. From a business perspective, they come to the office maybe twice a month for 2-3 days and then leaves. They don't know what is going on with the actual department that they are supposed to be running and I don’t believe they really have any clue how marketing should be run.

    To my knowledge, I honestly am unaware of what they truly do when they are working other than being a business advisor and securing us new leads and prospects and business. But no Marketing experience to my knowledge.

    Also, there are no company parties, no employee cookouts, nothing for employees to get together and do. There is nothing beneficial for employees here in terms of these things.

    Long story short, it’s a good company to start off in, but you will then see the disorganization, people working their butts off but not being rewarded, and others who have titles and all of these benefits that don’t even do what their title says they should.

    Advice to Management

    This would be to upper management, really look and see who adds to your company. Personal feelings aside, everyone else sees it. Why can't you? We know who works hard who proves it day in and day out, maybe it's time you asked and ACTUALLY took advice from your employees.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at EMA Design Automation (Rochester, NY) in January 2016.


    Hiring was pretty basic, apply online, get a call and than come in for a couple of interviews. Questions more around selling not the industry. Started a couple of weeks later.
