    I have been working at Method Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - They care about you as people. I really can't stress that enough. Since being here I've lost family members, bought a place, got engaged - all of which means time off work and a disruption of my schedule - but I've felt supported by management the whole time.

    - Opportunity for advancement - they pretty much lay out what you need to do to get advancements if you're a tech and what the salary expectations are. For admins it's less cut and dry, but that means more flexibility in carving a new position out for yourself. The position I hold didn't even exist when I started out - it's sort of cool to feel like you can help shape where you go with the company.

    - Good benefits and work perks. They try hard to make it a fun place to work. Lots of free lunches, kitchen always stocked with snacks, events like paintballing or kayaking on the weekends.

    - Compensation is good. At one point I thought I should be making more based on how my duties had changed, so I asked for a raise - and I got it. I don't understand people who have issues with their compensation but say nothing. Be willing to ask for what you think you deserve.

    Cons

    - Stressful sometimes. It's still a small business, so plenty of people end up wearing a lot of different hats.

    - Due to how many different kinds of tasks people handle, it's often unclear who is handling what now. That can make it hard when you know you need to escalate an issue, etc.

    - Some days can get crazy busy - but I think this is probably true of most MSPs

    Advice to Management

    Slow down a bit, focus on educating people on new policies and procedures, and consistently practice what you preach

    Web Developer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Method Technologies (Cypress, CA).

    Interview

    Applied online and got a call about a week later for an interview with the president and head of web development. They both seemed friendly and talked about how the company was growing its IT and web staffs. Was a fairly straightforward and somewhat challenging interview, but no weird or 'out there' questions. Mostly about programming experience, interest in the position, responsibilities, etc. Went over portfolio website and previous work. Did a programming test at the end of the interview which asked reasonable questions about HTML, CSS, JavaScript.
    Was told a second interview would be set up (even before submitting answers to the programming test), and it ended up being the next day with a panel of three people. The second interview was very friendly and colloquial, more about getting to know the company culture and applicant. Got offered the position the same day.
    Talked to/was introduced to a lot of friendly people who worked at the company throughout the entire interview process - this was reassuring and confirmed that it was a good work environment and had a great team of people.

    Interview Questions

    • Can't recall the most difficult question but some of questions were how to troubleshoot errors and deal with juggling multiple deadlines/projects.   Answer Question
