I worked at Porous Media full-time (More than a year)
Love the freedom to improve the manufacturing process. I don't think they laid any off at all. People just found positions somewhere else and moved on. There are some people who worked there forever. Most of my co-workers are very smart and business oriented
Wasn't there long enough to see how the annual raises turn out. Initial salary could be a bit higher, but I didn't know how to negotiate when I was out of college, so it was my fault.
Advice to Management
I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Porous Media (Conroe, TX) in December 2010.
The interview was a normal meet and greet to get to know the company. It was conducted on campus. I was invited to an onsite interview after that and I had a very pleasant experience speaking with the entire staff and the Co-Founder of the company.
I was young and naive, didn't negotiate :)
