    I have been working at Materia full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Company has friendly workers who are always willing to help you. Lots of interesting experiments and things always seem to be changing.

    Cons

    Company does not have much room to grow. Does not give many raises, but does give bonuses which is not ideal.

    Advice to Management

    Create more levels for your employees and give raises rather than only giving employees bonuses. The lack of room to grow is the most frustrating part of the job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Materia (Pasadena, CA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    I emailed my resume to the HR email. About a week or so later I received and email back and was scheduled for an interview the next week. The interview consisted of a 3 person panel with usually one HR representative and two people from the department that you are applying to. General interview questions nothing too difficult. No background check or drug test.
