    I have been working at SemanticBits full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    SemanticBits has to be the most liberal, flexible, friendly and BS-free IT shop I have worked at in NoVA over last 15 years. This is because the management at SemanticBits knows probably one of the most important principles of empowering their employees: give folks challenging and interesting work, give them the tools they ask for, remove all barriers and any nonsense, and then… step aside and see work getting done.

    The projects at SemanticBits are interesting and offer plenty of learning opportunities, which is critical in today’s IT landscape: Node.js and JavaScript, latest Angular, abundance of “cloud” (AWS), DevOps…the list goes on. Working with the latest tech is important, considering the fact that the aging behemoths, such as Java, slowly start to fade away. The team is excellent, too: most of the folks are intellectual, friendly, and fun to work with. No micromanagement of any sort, no watching over your shoulder. Benefits are great, too!

    Cons

    As most of companies in the tristate area, SemanticBits works mainly on the government contracts, and not all government agencies are created equal. There are agencies, like CMS, that embrace latest tech, the cloud, and agile, but there are sometimes agencies that drown in bureaucracy and archaic processes… Fortunately, the latter are rare, but such contracts occur occasionally.

    Advice to Management

    Keep stepping up the marketing and diversify the contracts portfolio.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SemanticBits.

    Interview

    I found it very unprofessional and shady. I personally would stay away from
    Them. After multiple interviews they just seemed shady based on their requests and they never get back to you. My advice stay away
