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

    Pros

    Under the fearless leadership of the company's CTO, Chris Hamlett (aka The Hamster), and captained by more than one talented and hard working tech lead headquartered in the mountainous hill country of Bulverde, Futurex has grown to incredible heights over the past ten years. I feel fortunate to have been a part of the company's success while I worked there.

    While some companies are more fluff than stuff, Futurex was a very enjoyable company to work for with a relaxed family atmosphere. That's not to say there weren't long nights of writing and debugging code to meet deadlines, but I always felt my hard work and dedication was recognized and rewarded. If you start here and are not passionate about your job or you are unwilling to pick up new technologies and learn a lot as you go, you will stand out and find it difficult to get ahead.

    Cons

    Orientation for new hires lacks breadth and depth.

    Office thermostats lack safeguards against tampering.

    Advice to Management

    Revamp your orientation process.

    Make financial statements for income, cash flow, financial position, and changes in equity accessible to employees.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Futurex (Bulverde, TX) in September 2016.

    Interview

    RESCINDED OFFER OF EMPLOYMENT less than a week before start date.

    Applied through their website and was contacted via phone. Went in for an in-person interview that went well. A week later was contacted again by the Administrator/HR Coordinator for a Reference Request - gave them the info and was later told all reviews were positive. I was then called and given a verbal offer from the Director of Product Marketing. Received an email containing Employment Offer Letter plus Welcome Packet. I responded, accepting the offer and giving approval for Background Check Authorization. Afterwards I was notified that my background check had cleared and that "Futurex is delighted to have you on our team!" - as well as verifying my start date.

    Less than a week before the date agreed upon I was called again by the Director of Product Marketing claiming the company was "restructuring departments and no longer hiring for that position."

    The position is now posted again, less than a month after that statement was made - BEWARE.
