I have been working at Penta Engineering full-time (More than 5 years)
Employee Owned company, good variation in engineering tasks, they generally try to promote from within,
Don't do much 3D CAD, benefits are decent but not great,
I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Penta Engineering (Charlotte, NC) in February 2008.
One phone interview, then went in a week later for in-person interview. Met with direct supervisor and engineering managers, plus owners of company and colleagues. Questions were typical, they made me feel very comfortable and desired as an employee. they did a great job of "selling" the company and the job. They let me know right away their decision, and extended the offer.
Negotiation was good, we only went back and forth one time before agreeing.
