I have been working at MAVERICK Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

MAVERICK is fortunate in that they are growing. Our CEO is a visionary, not to mention a great guy, and communicates well the direction MAVERICK is going. Legacy systems are reaching their full life-cycle in most all control system platforms and now is a prime time to be in the integration business. Better stated, MAVERICK is poised to be the leading integrator in North America once the flood gates are fully opened. I love the work hard, play hard culture. Most of all, I really enjoy my job and working for MAVERICK!

Cons

If you are not assigned to a project, or unapplied, the bench, or idle is where you sit. Most people sorta freak out when they are NOT billable as you are now an asset liability. At times, there is little overlapping or coordination of project assignments - it's like winning the lottery when you get back on a project.

Advice to Management

Each office should have an engineering resource manager that all engineers report to. They'd coordinate directly with the project managers to resource load their projects. Also, providing guidance, personal development, training and accountability of each engineer.

    I have been working at MAVERICK Technologies as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    On the phone and during the job interview it all looks very promising....but when it comes time to start your position forget about it...you are just another billable resource that they have and you will do whatever it takes to earn income, regardless of what you expected.

    Cons

    After joining and talking with other employees...its easy to find out how unhappy others are about their job and salary...They are too afraid to be open about it!

    Advice to Management

    stop lying to your employees...
