-Some good people to work with
-There are not many clients, so there is concern about long-term viability of company.
-Company is all smoke and mirrors – basically all they do is simple software testing, though they want others to believe they are involved in all aspects of software development and process improvement.
-CEO wants to grow the company, but lacks business relationships and the means to build those relationships.
-Company has not met profit projections since CEO severed relationship with largest client, resulting in no bonuses being paid since 2009.
-Communication from management is virtually non-existent
Advice to Management
-Be willing to listen to your employees and act on their suggestions
-Quit thinking you're a 'consulting' firm - you're a 'contractor' or 'staff aug'. There's nothing wrong with being a 'contractor'.
-Provide timely feedback
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Provare Technology (Alpharetta, GA) in August 2011.
Interview process was not that difficult. CEO was not a good interviewer - asked irrelevant questions, and spent more time talking about himself than he did the job.
