    I have been working at Softway full-time

    Pros

    Softway is different from any company I’ve known or come to learn about from others. It’s hard to put into words, let alone a review, because no one can really express or explain enough for someone to understand what it's like to work here with this team. This family.

    On the surface, I can see how there are things that can come off a bit disheveled. Our organization is still trying to figure things out and make things better for ourselves every single day. You can see it in the CEO and the leadership team. The persistence, the drive and motivation they project to everyone is inspiring. If something works, they go for it. And if it doesn’t, it’s a learning experience and they make sure to go in a different direction or change something. Everyone here looks at failure as a learning opportunity, so feedback is always appreciated and welcomed. If you don't provide feedback or speak up, don't expect anything to change. Pretty simple.

    To me, there is no such thing as a perfect business or a perfect formula on how to run a company, so I’m not sure why all these reviews speak like they’re experts. But what I do know is that the people here actually care about you. They care about work you, personal you, and the future you with all your goals in mind. The managers will do whatever they can to set you up for the success that you want as long as you are willing to work for it too. And that says more to me as an individual and employee trying to better myself in work and in life than anything else.

    Cons

    Of course, with everything great comes with some negative aspects. I won't sugarcoat anything. Your job will be hard at times because you’re juggling a lot, and there will be days that are harder than others, but the support your team will give is amazing. No one will let you struggle and if they can do anything to help you, they will. All you have to do is ask.

    And we need better oatmeal options for breakfast.

    Marketing Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Softway (Houston, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email to set up a phone interview (phone screening). A week or so later, I was called to schedule an in-person interview. The first interview was with just the hiring manager. A few days later, I received an email to schedule a second interview with the hiring manager, the VP of Marketing and the CEO. The following week, I received a formal offer for the position.

    Be prepared to send references. They called all three of my previous employers.
