    I have been working at KeyW full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, big enough to provide lots of opportunities, but small enough that you know most of the people you work with on a daily basis. It still feels fun even though the company is bigger. There have been big changes in upper management but the new top team seems to be unified and they communicate with employees frequently, there's lots of information about what's going on. Also, managers in the company seem to get regular management training which doesn't happen in most companies.

    Cons

    There's not much mixing with the new company we acquired, Sotera. I would like to learn more about them

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, and keep up the communication. People like me like to know what's going on.

    Software Development Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at KeyW (Austin, TX) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Skype interview that lasted 30 minutes.
    The interview was at 10:30 AM their time and 8:30 AM my time and one of the interviewers had his head down and continuously turned the camera from him. I was asked about Operating Systems questions and my projects regarding it. Then I was given a classic coding problem. I will not disclose questions in respect to the company.

    I was then cutoff by them when I was asking them questions. Funny enough, that was when I was about to ask them about the culture and if they liked working at the company.
