Equilibrium provides comprehensive medical and dental insurance benefits to keep you and your family healthy. We also offer plans to protect your family in the event of death or disability. 

Medical/Dental Benefits
Health insurance is provided by Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS). Our health insurance plans offer access to regional PPO provider networks across the country, as well as out-of-network providers.

    Pros

    Fantastic leadership team led by Glen Hampton. Glen, Tony, and Kelly, along with the great EQ staff, make sure customers receive outstanding service in order to keep their businesses running smooth. IT is the core of any business operations and EQ delivers outstanding support. EQ never has any problem getting recommendations for potential customers whom are interested in learning how well EQ performs. All employees, including engineers receive professional development focused on their functional roles and personal goals. Leaving EQ to help a family business was one of the toughest decisions I ever made because EQ truly treated me like family. I still keep in touch and am glad they are doing well.

    Cons

    There are no cons associated with EQ. Glen runs a great company and his staff, and more importantly customers know it.

    Keep up the good work

    Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Equilibrium IT Solutions (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Phone Interview with talent coordinator - likable and upfront, he is the gatekeeper.
    2nd Interview with owner - will give you a solid feel if you're a good fit for the company. Be yourself. Honesty is paramount.
    3rd interview with CTO - Challenging, he really knows his stuff. Be prepared to dive deep on anything on your resume. If you appear unconfident he will ask him you more questions and determine what you know. Difficult interview but fair and enjoyable if you like challenges. This interview actually made me better prepared for future technical interviews.
