    I have been working at Quintiq full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I believe that many people go their entire lives without finding a job that truly makes them happy. I had that at Quintiq. The culture of the company is that of "work hard, but be happy while your doing that work". I was surrounded by creative, intelligent, motivated peers who were eager to provide me with whatever help that I needed to achieve my full potential. I was proud of the work that I did and was able to see immediate results in the companies that used the software that I created for them. It felt good to brag to family and friends about how the code that I wrote directly influenced efficiency at some of the largest companies in the world.

    The work is exciting and fast paced. A typical day involves sitting in front of a whiteboard with a few peers, and trying to design a solution to some logistics puzzle. As a software engineer, there are a wide variety of jobs that you could have. For example, somebody has to write the code to make error codes show up correctly on a cable box. I can assure you that this job is the complete opposite end of the spectrum. The problems that you will solve will require you to be creative and solve puzzles. Your full time job is to solve the types of problems that you read in brain teasers. It's fun!

    Cons

    Quintiq has a very flat structure, which is great because you work among your equals. As you gain experience, you will be given additional responsibilities. But, your official title won't change. Some people want to move up a structured managerial latter as they put in their time. I would say that Quintiq does not follow this structure.

    Sales cycles are battles of attrition, but the rewards are huge. This means that the difference between a good year and a bad year is often whether or not your business unit had a single sale.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to lead as you are leading now, by showing genuine concern for the well being of your employees.

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Quintiq (Radnor, PA).

    Interview

    First step was a phone interview with one of the executives. I was asked a few questions about my skills and abilities, and we talked a lot about the role and the company. I had time for to ask questions at the end.

    I was then invited into the office to meet individually with 2 other executives. The first executive asked me where I was born, if I had any siblings, and then asked a couple of generic questions ("So, tell me about yourself".) He spent the rest of the time talking about the company, the products, and how they position it. He cursed several times along the way.

    Both interviewers asked me about my hobbies. Strange, as most companies shy away from this. The second interviewer actually wrote down my answers!

    Both interviewers also commented on my age. I had asked each of them to describe the work environment, and both replied similarly. They both said that most employees are fairly young. They then pointed to their slightly graying hair, then to my slightly graying hair, and said, "We're the old ones."
