Great working environment, good stepping platform for building my skillsets, got to "test" the waters. Besides work life balance, being talented and nice coworkers, exposure to complex system and cutting edge technology. They also offered to help my self get certified in opps aligned with my work. I read some of the other reviews and I wanted to make it clear there is product development happening as well. So if you are on the product side, then you're on their technical product oriented work (not services), and early on it can be a fast-paced environment thats competitive; results-driven; analytical; manage-by-the-numbers culture; Smart and technical leadership.
The people I worked with were great. My direct managers/leads were wonderful to work for. They always had my back and tried to advocate for us.
Everybody seemed rather cool, the atmosphere really open and generally enjoyable. They were fairly quick with setting up the interview, but their clients seemed to be very slow with the feedback process, I was given regular updates from Mapjects. It would have been nice to get some more concrete dates, when I inquired I was told they were still waiting on their clients feedback. I finally got the work, but rather long process.
Advice to Management
Please shorten the process, given that this can also involve clearances it tends to draw it out. On the products side please create some orientation materials, manuals are for customers but with the various products you've been building you need to create an orientation or env setup help guide.

The process had 3 Steps, after I applied with my resume, and included some artifacts around .AI and PSD files. I decided to submit those vector files to show them, that the artwork was my own, and it had good practices (bonus points).
Just when I forgot, in 2 or 3 weeks, I got a follow up and a call. It was odd, because rather than asking what I could provide, they asked me what I was looking for!
Later, they told me, with what I submitted it was clear what I could do. So, when I asked for remoter work, they agreed with a couple of conditions.
Steps, 1 and 2 were basic screening questions.
The last was more a discovery process on how well we fit, and what I could do to help them.
I was looking for additional income, and this worked out very well. We just bought a cool Scion.
