I have been working at Navitaire full-time (Less than a year)
It is a great software company. It feels like a family. We care about what we do, we take pride on what we build and we take ownership of our diverse projects.
We are innovating to continue to grow with our clients: airlines from all over the world.
Excellent benefits. Some even better than the "unicorns" in the valley. (410k 100% match on 6% 1 year vesting, 3 weeks PTO, 10 holidays, 3 floating, health, dental, life insurances, training, flexible schedule) and of course competitive pay and let me tell you, we are a profitable.
Average tenure of employees here is 8 years. Many people I work with have been here for more than 10 years. Some for 15 and 20+). Even our office manager retired few months ago after 25+ years working here. We like it here.
Older tech in some projects.
We haven't embraced agile yet.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Navitaire (Salt Lake City, UT) in October 2016.
Phone interview with out of state recruiter for 30 minutes and another 30 minute interview with a finance lead in Utah.
A few days later a in person interview was setup. I was told by the recruiter and head that it would be quick, but it ended being 2 hours long. I arrived at the building and the manager was late. He then brought me to a conference room where I spent 30 minutes going over 'homework' problems. Every single company that I have interviewed with will let you know in advance, but 30 minutes of home work and then another 30 minutes of explanation is too much. The questions asked the stock price of amadeus, oil prices and how their affect airlines, lots of dividend related questions, and cash flow scenarios. I was never asked if the long interview was okay or provided a schedule of how things would go.
After an hour of the homework, I spent another hour speaking to the manager, HR, and the lead manager over every single detail of my personality, work habits, travel, resume, future goals. It felt like more of a grilling than an interview.
As I walking out the head said he would give me feedback in two days at the latest, it has been four weeks and Navitaire never bothered to provide news. I would stay far away and interview somewhere else. The whole interview process took up so much time and they couldn't even provide feedback.
