The CEO is truly excited about their lines of practices and exudes optimism about the future of the company. Great positivity! They have a diverse talent pool and a variety of technologies and opportunity, with changing opportunities all the time. Also, they recently rolled out new benefits and updated their 401K rules, looking to make these better for their employees.

Advice to Management
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at VisionIT (Detroit, MI) in July 2015.
I had a total of five interviews: two phone calls with the recruiter, one with the hiring manager, another with an employee on the project, and one panel interview with the client that the project was for.
Other than the number of interviews, there was nothing wrong with the interview process. The recruiter was extremely helpful. My issue isn't the fact that I didn't receive an offer, but that the line of communication. It wasn't until two weeks after my 1:1 interview with the hiring manager that I received communication that I didn't receive the position. A month and a half later, the recruiter contacted me again saying that they were still interested in hiring me and set me up with another phone interview with a VisionIT employee.. After that, I interviewed with the client that VisionIT was working on a project for. Weeks after the last interview I contacted VisionIT several times with no response. I found out the recruiter had been fired. The hiring manager and other VisionIT employee also never responded.
It is important for companies to send denial emails to prospective employees, even if they're just templates, even if they're automated. Prospective employees who have poor experiences with communication go out to tell their fellow college graduates and professionals about their bad interview experience and how communication was inadequate. Forward thinking, culturally advanced companies always keep a clear line of communication even when they respectfully decide not to move forward with prospects. I will never consider a position with VisionIT after my experience.
