    I have been working at MEC Analytical Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people are great and their is a collegiate atmosphere at all levels

    I have to say the office politics here aren't bad at all it is much worse at other places

    If you take initiative, you really can do some cool stuff here and there

    Blue chip clients

    It wasn't that challenging

    Cons

    Bush league

    Losing those blue chip clients

    I have met some great people there, but I also met some embarrassingly awful people too. Stop hiring people who can barely do their job. They make everyone look bad.

    It wasn't that challenging

    Advice to Management

    Hire better people and promote based on skill. There are good people here and many are in leadership positions, but for some reason few teach their people anything... they're just a boss. I get it, you got media school and those 360 evals, but you need to give kids a chances to think independently and reward them for it. Also, stop hiring idiots and people who don't deserve their titles. They aren't the majority, but a few bad apple ruin the bunch.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at MEC Analytical Systems (Atlanta, GA) in May 2011.

    Interview

    Interviewed with three people - two higher managers and a potential co-worker. Questions were basic, from "Tell me about your background" to "why a career change." The interview process itself was simple but the company is HORRIBLE in communicating as you go along the process.
