I worked at Hart InterCivic full-time (Less than a year)
Good hardware, latest development tools, fantastic culture, including Friday afternoon Hart-Rock Cafe sessions where you can unwind with a cold one and get caught up on the latest company news. Casual attire. Decent benefits. Company will occasionally do fun events like having a food truck in, or a theme week. Free beverages and snacks.
The biggest drawback to working at Hart, especially if you are in Engineering, is that the work/life balance is, quite frankly, awful. Expect to work many weekends, as the company has a habit of overselling its products. Don't get me wrong, the current generation product is an excellent one, but it is very ambitious. And due to certification dates, the deadlines can NOT be moved. They pay very well, but when you're working 60 hours a week, you're working for pretty cheap.
Also, working from home, while possible due to the hardware you have to work with, is generally frowned upon, unless absolutely necessary (like: ice storm in what little winter we get here in Texas). In this day and age, telecommuting a couple of days a week should be acceptable.
Advice to Management
If anything, your sales department is a little TOO good. :-)
I interviewed at Hart InterCivic (Austin, TX) in February 2016.
Interview arrangement was made through a recruiter.
There were three separate on-site interviews. First was meeting the QA Director, and getting an overview of their product and process. Second was meeting with another QA Engineer. General QA questions. The third interview was close to 3 hours, where you interview with the VP of Engineering, Technical Architect and the QA Manager again...all separate interview.
No post feedback from the recruiter or Hart Intercivic. Have not heard anything from them at all. Assumed after not hearing anything for a few weeks that they weren't interested, but they have been trying to hire for that same position for over 6 months now.
