    I worked at Simplex full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    * You start becoming productive on day one. There is no drawn out onboarding process. You start writing and committing code right away. The transition is smooth yet definite.
    * The team has some really smart engineers who perform at a very high level. It is surprising how every developer does so many different things and does it well.
    * You get total ownership of your projects and you mostly have complete autonomy on how to go about it and there is always help if you need
    * Good production monitoring system

    Cons

    * The developer workflow tools/platform could use some upgrading
    * Emacs not installed on all machines by default (LOL, j/k)

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Simplex (Chicago, IL) in February 2012.

    Interview

    I had to take a longer wonderlic and then one and a half hour long test on brain teaser problems, solving derivatives, creating confidence intervals, and very basic options problems..if you dont score high enough they make you leave..if you score high enough you do a group project and they pick from there
