I worked at MRI Software full-time
MRI has some of the most amazing people I have ever worked with. The company had managed to combine a fast pace work environment with a sense of family. You become very attached to the people you work with and you will be amazed by their hard work and dedication.
MRI also does a good job of rewarding those who go above and beyond. They have a program that allows fellow employees to nominate one another for a free mini vacation.
You can not be afraid to work. You will have very little down town and some days/weeks you will work long hours.
Advice to Management
My managers were pretty great while I was at MRI. I would just suggest that a few of the managers focus on telling their employees they are doing a great job.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at MRI Software (Atlanta, GA) in August 2017.
Online application. Received an email for an IQ assessment, completed assessment. Phone screening call. Shortly after followed up with another IQ assessment, pretty much the exact same thing, however this time I was watched over Skype to ensure I wasn't cheating. Little weird. Recruiter was nice, but pretty hard to get ahold of. Week or so later, went in for an interview with the manager of the team they were hiring for, then another manager of a different team. Overall the in person interviews went incredibly well. Followed up a few times to the recruiter, didn't hear anything. Followed up lastly to the manager I interviewed with, and heard back shortly, saying they would forward my email along. Several weeks later, I received an automated email saying I did not get the job. I think I connected very well with everyone in the office, and had a very ideal background, but I guess they have their reasons. Not a bad experience, little upset I didn't get the position as they immediately reopened the posting online. The people at the Atlanta office, the management, were very approachable. Side note: they didn't offer water or anything to drink during the interview. Never noticed how nice it was to have a water bottle at an interview until this experience as its difficult to talk for an hour without anything.
