    I have been working at Momentum Machines full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    In the four years I've been at Momentum Machines, the culture, challenge and drive has led me to incredible personal and professional growth. This is an amazing place to be! Also it is awesome to apply engineering skills to something as cool and relatable as food... at times this job feels more like an senior design project.

    + Talented team that is fun to work with.
    + Growth-oriented culture.
    + Collegial atmosphere.
    + Among the first to bring robotics to the commercial space.
    + Modern software stack, prototyping tools and fresh approach to automation.
    + Team defaults to trusting each other - no one leads from title or "positional authority".
    + Growing fast!
    + Everyone here is smart, empathetic and respectful.
    + I'm surrounded by foodies!

    Cons

    + The company will have to work hard to maintain its stellar culture as it grows.
    + We're running out of space at our office... time to find a bigger one.
    + Can't talk about all the cool stuff we do while we're in stealth mode.
    + No in-office masseuse, bean-bag chairs, or executive chef - but we do cook ourselves breakfast and team lunches every week!

    Advice to Management

    We don't have any company swag. I'd love a coffee mug or maybe a Patagonia vest once we're out of stealth mode.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Momentum Machines.

    Interview

    Applied online and received an email from the internal recruiter to schedule 30-45min phone screen. The phone screen consisted question about my resume, such as leadership, working independently, stress situations and situational questions. Overall it went well and I was moved to the next stage of interviews with a senior engineer. The interview with the senior engineer was average, but I felt like I was being probed for free consulting advice during the later parts of the interview.
