    I have been working at MEDRAD full-time

    Pros

    Knowledgeable teams, good compensation, low cost of living in Pittsburgh PA. Before Bayer there was a great work environment and camaraderie among employees, and great communication from upper management regarding business direction.

    Cons

    Bayer. Pharma company attempting to run a medical device company (which was already trying to reinvent itself as a software company.) Work environment rapidly deteriorating amidst frequent reorganizations and rounds of layoffs. It is pretty clear that you are just a cog in the wheel now.

    Advice to Management

    Carve out some budget dollars for team building.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at MEDRAD (Indianola, PA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I had approximately an hour-long phone screening within a few days of being submitted for the job. Two days later, they brought me in for a three hour on-site interview with the members of the team. As I was driving home, I received a job offer. I was never required to write code on a whiteboard. The questions varied greatly in specificity and and complexity between the interviewers, but I never felt like I was getting trick questions or ones meant to aggrandize the interviewer. Coffee and water was provided, but I found myself wishing that I had eaten more extensively before the interview because, by the end of the third hour, I was getting a little loopy.

    The job offer on the way home from the interview was unexpected, and has left me feeling a little bit pressured, particularly as the staffing company I'm going through have indicated that they are not amicable to applicants delaying the decision to accept even by a week.
