Mission: MECLABS is a research library with a simple (but not easy) seven-word mission statement: To discover what really works in optimization.
I have been working at MECLABS full-time (More than a year)
I was lucky enough to get an opportunity to work in Meclabs when I was a fresh graduate and relatively wet behind the ears. I joined straight out of campus and was really skittish during my initial days here.
But, the CEO and the rest of the top management put me at ease instantly. I was given intense training by my boss (who is part of the middle management here) over the next few weeks. Immediately after that, I was thrown neck deep into a live project for a huge client. Luckily, my boss was there by my side at every stage of the project to guide me. He also made sure that I got most of the credit when the client was raving about our work to the CEO!
Since then, I've grown in confidence and now am comfortable enough to handle large client accounts on my own. Frankly, I look forward to getting to work every day in the morning, and generally have to be pushed by my boss to leave at the end of the day!
Meclabs is perhaps one of the best companies in Jacksonville to build your career, work with large corporations, and truly make a difference to their bottom line.
- The management's vision
- The difference this organization makes to our clients
- Friendly office culture: everybody is approachable
- Complete lack of politics
- Getting the chance to work with Fortune 500 companies in different sectors
- Ping Pong table (I am a huge Ping Pong buff!)
- Great cafeteria
Pay could be a bit better for fresh graduates. Having said that, once you have proved yourself, there is immense scope to grow and earn more.
Advice to Management
Not much to say - Flint and team are doing a great job already, but in my view, we should have a mid-week office party which will help motivate employees more!
I applied online. I interviewed at MECLABS (Jacksonville, FL) in August 2017.
It was really long. I went through three interviews all with the same type of behavior questions. I also took an assessment test and excel test. They only got back to me about the job after I had emailed them a week later. They did not respond till a few days later at 10pm.
