    Pros

    1. Improving is 100% focused on building up their employees. Everything they do for their employees is focused on improvement, involvement, advancement, happiness.
    2. There is no overhead, no bull-puckey, no drama. Just be great, everything else is taken care of.
    3. 100% Transparency--Improving keeps us in the loop on finances, on potential clients, etc.
    4. Employee Incentive Program--Improving wants you to get paid for your extracurricular activities. Do you attend user groups for Java? Did you go to that code conference? Speak at it? Did you write a blog post? You can count all of those toward your quarterly bonus program!
    5. Every single 'executive' I've met has been awesome, kind, honest, supportive, and down to earth. No jerks driving yellow corvettes here.

    Cons

    If you don't like working for a small company, Improving isn't for you. If you just want to show up, do your job 34 hours a week, and go home, Improving isn't for you.

    Advice to Management

    I think management is currently overloaded and could use a little assistance.

    Technical Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Improving (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    I applied for the job online after seeing the posting on LinkedIn. I was immediately contacted by the VP of Recruiting to set up an initial phone interview. The call was very informative and conversational which I really enjoyed. She then set up a call between me and one of the other Technical Recruiters. It was an excellent call and I found that the Recruiter asked me very thoughtful questions about my experience. She also allowed me to ask her questions and was very honest and candid with her answers. This was a recurring theme I found with all my interviews. Everyone seemed very genuine and forthcoming about their own experience working at the company. The positive energy was infectious and I wrapped up every interview feeling like I learned a ton which is refreshing.

    In addition to the phone interviews, I had a group lunch interview with several leaders in the Houston office, an in office interview with the President of the Houston office as well as an in office interview with the CEO. These were hands down the best interviews I've ever experienced throughout my career and I'm extremely picky since I'm a recruiter. The VP of Recruiting kept in constant communication so I always knew where I stood and what to expect regarding next steps, etc.

    When I received the call about the official offer it was a no-brainer decision for me. I enthusiastically accepted the offer and can't wait to start! I rarely write reviews and this interview experience was so good I couldn't help myself.
