I have been working at UniGroup full-time (More than 5 years)
There are opportunities to advance - I earned 2 promotions in 5 years.
QDivision gives software engineers the opportunity to work in self-organized teams, where they are given a problem to solve but they own the "how". They make commitments as a team and they hold themselves and each other accountable.
QDivision is a learning organization. We provide formal learning opportunities in the form of Tech Talks, brown-bag lunches, and mentor relationships, and there are lots of informal learning opportunities within the projects. We discourage silos of knowledge or skills and encourage the spread of knowledge across all members of a team.
This isn't really a downside to me, but it's a pretty fast-paced environment, and some people aren't comfortable with changing business priorities and quick turn-around to respond to users' wants & needs.
We do have high expectations, but we give people the resources, the information, and the tools they need to be successful. We coach and mentor anyone who is struggling, and everyone has a fair change to succeed and shine.
Advice to Management
Don't take away the flexibility and the ownership and the contributor level. It has proven successful so let's continue and do more!
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at UniGroup (Fenton, MO) in November 2014.
Fairly easy interview. First start off with a phone call and some brief interview questions and telling you about the company. Set up interview in person. Simple interview, wanted to know a time you helped a customer. Interviewed in the cafeteria which was weird by comforting for someone in college because it was not intimidating. Then I received another phone call and had another interview with the person that you will be training you. Same type of interview questions, but this time they really explain the job and during the interview it sounded like I had the job. She said it was a very fast pace environment and you will want to pull your hair out sometimes. (Working there it was a little fast pace but as an intern you have tasks that a very manageable for someone who hasn't worked in a business environment before). A fun environment over the summer because their are a lot of college interns.
No negotiation for an intern.
