I worked at SolutionStream full-time (More than 3 years)
The demands and expectations for a project manager here are high. To be successful I had to feel comfortable as a project manager and a product manager and an account manager. I absolutely wore all the hats all the time. The projects are managed in pretty high detail and lots of reporting expectations, which is interesting because overall it’s a very agile environment. But I love the challenge.
I wish the job didn’t include so much account management responsibility. I felt like that portion should be handled more by the account managers who are actually getting commission for doing the job.
Advice to Management
Make the actual account managers responsible for more of their job and don’t leave it in project management hands.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at SolutionStream.
Three interviews, first was a Phone Interview with their Recruiter. Second interview was with a manager of several development team, very knowledgeable. Third was with a client I would have been working with.
First two interviews were great, great people, inteletual conversations not an interigation, very forward about the benifits and short comings.
Third interview was horrible, first it had to be done over a weekend, then the client miss the meeting. It was then reschedule that same day, but come to find out he didn't have enough time to do a real interview, so he decided upon a fast pace Q and A. All of his questions were vague and I spent most of the time trying to figure out what he was asking, only to find the question was about obscure networking or multi sever strategy questions nothing about the programming language.
Come that Monday, solutionstream was no longer working with that client, apologies to me for that interview, and offered me a job working with a different client.
What I take from this and all my experiences so far with solutionstream, they have a great team and good guys, but sometime have some less than desirable clients. My new client is great and enjoying working with them each day.
The interviews are easy if you know your languages and you just have to hope you don't do one with a client, or that it's a good client. But in the end, they are able to look past a bad situation and evaluate you.
Really great to be honest. They don't attempt to size you up based upon your currently or last employer. They measure you and make an offer based upon the Interviews.
I asked for changes to the contracts and they were more than willing to accommodate within reason.
Time to get your costumes ready!
