    Pros

    Small company with a good atmosphere depending on your position and location. The workers seem to treat each other like friends and did happy hours together often.

    Cons

    Some people have more control than they need. An accountant seemed in control over contracts, Quality Assurance, human resources, information technology and other portions of the business. There were instances of clock watching (by non manager accountant) even when time off was approved by the manager. The division manager seemed out of touch with the Houston offices. Pay was not great and raises were not very high most times.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with employees better, add tuition benefit.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at MDA Corporation (Detroit, MI) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Interview was over the phone. First with a recruiter who asked me about myself and told me about the interviewing process. Then a technical one with a software engineer- he asked me over the phone about my work history and then just gave me examples of different scenarios and how I would address them
