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

    Pros

    The people here are amazing, including the founders. Cultural interviews, as well as technical assessments, mean we're not just hiring from a resume, we have really put together an amazing team that embodies the meaning of teamwork.

    Projects are well organized and our Project Leads are incredibly talented and always trying to improve on that - we set responsible expectations with clients which comes from 20 years of experience in that arena, and it pays off when it comes to work/life balance.

    One of my favorite things? SOLTECH allows the team to come up with solutions to improve the company, and founders really support those endeavors as much as possible. It's a small team, very busy team, so that doesn't mean things happen overnight ... but the opportunity is there and you're never discouraged from taking a chance on trying something new. That extends to company-wide initiatives, but also in daily technology decisions.

    Pay is really competitive, and honestly yes there are some out of pocket expenses on some of the benefits pieces (no more than most companies), but you're working for a company that has never experienced layoffs due to lost business because they're responsible with their spending and budgeting. That is huge. Startups are shiny and attractive, but you can experience that vibe here from an exposure to new tech standpoint, as well as being around awesome creative people, while not worrying if your next paycheck is going to clear or if you're going to have to get sucked into a specific stereotype (sports or video games ... we have all kinds here, and way more than that). There is real job security here, and you know your leadership is making responsible decisions and not just trying to line their pockets. They're putting a lot back into the team now.

    I've learned more about new database technologies, approaches and updates in .NET Core, been exposed to JS frameworks I never knew existed, learned about AWS and Azure and scaling considerations ... and how to meditate from my desk all in the last year and a half. I can't imagine feeling unchallenged here. That's important for my personal/professional goals, and I think that would ring true for a lot of people.

    Cons

    Consulting isn't for everyone. We care a lot about our clients and want to make sure they have a positive experience, even if they're challenging. You have to have a passion for that, and the reward is huge IMO. Be kind to clients, if you're not good with people this might not be for you.

    We rely on the team to pitch in when needed ... to get through a deadline or help out when the paper towels run out (don't worry, there's always stock in the cabinets). Our CEO walks around ensuring our office is set up for success, presenting well for our team and our clients, so no task is below anyone here. It's a humble group, but it means you'll need to participate in that, too. Roll your sleeves up, be a part of it, and enjoy the opportunities this team provides.

    Consulting means you bill to clients, no way around that. Keeping time logs can be a challenge for some, but totally makes sense to others. This can be a big learning curve for people, to overcome the feeling that they're hourly workers but have to log time high-level. It's not micro-managing, it's the nature of consulting work.

    Advice to Management

    Can we find a way to sneak dogs past the building concierge, please?

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at SolTech (Atlanta, GA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Met with CEO and SVP. They market themselves as a 50/50 Software Solutions and Staffing Solutions organization. Make no mistake, this is an IT Staffing company. The entire interview process is designed to shop your resume for their IT Staffing and Recruiting business to get commissions. Super Shady process, BEWARE!
