    I worked at Software Technology Group (UT) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It is a family atmosphere!! Each department communicates daily and everyone knows everyone, there is nothing better than working with people you actually care about. Very solid recruiting and account manager team, they all work together and have good relationships. Amazing company that cares about values and standards along with a great work life balance.

    Cons

    Sometimes feel like teams are being pushed to run too fast. Numbers and dashboards are almost all the focus and that sometimes will take away from giving the best experience for both candidates and clients. There is no real hands on coaching, training or development, you must be willing to figure things out on your own or ask for help. Directors are busy and unable to give individual coaching and training.

    Advice to Management

    I am more than grateful that I was able to experience the opportunity, I learned a lot and I know the company has the best of intensions. In 2015 the system was working. Don't try to re invent the wheel, give the candidates and clients the best you have to give and never forget what is most important, your employees. Hire managers to work directly with your recruiting and account management teams, having only a director is not enough. Teams perform best when they have the daily coaching, training and development to be great. Software Technology Group is a few small tweaks away from being so great. Even as an employee who was let go, I know there are so many opportunities for greatness at STG, stick with company values and what got you where you are, don't stray from what made you great for 21+ years.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Software Technology Group (UT) (Salt Lake City, UT).

    Interview

    A recruiter reached out to me and took me to lunch. He gave me background on the company and got a feel for my history and skills. We discussed what I was looking for and my compensation goals. He scheduled me for a "tech" (a technical competency) with one of their design leads. The recruiter got in touch after the tech and gave me the results and expressed interest in moving forward. He then began sending me potential client contracts to consider. Interest on my side and on the client side resulted in an interview with the client. After that interview, STG expressed enthusiasm in bringing me on full time once the client made an offer. The offer came and I was hired.

    Interview Questions

    • In my "tech" review, I was asked about UX process, about personas, about how I present my work / talk about my designs.

      One specific question: "What is the best mistake you've ever made"   Answer Question
