    I have been working at MAQ Software full-time

    Pros

    1. You have a lot of responsibility, even in entry-level positions. You can view that as either a source of stress or a chance to grow. If you choose to see it as an opportunity to learn something new, you'll do fine here.

    2. Flat organization = reduced bureaucracy. If I have a good idea, I can go straight to any member of senior management.

    3. A lot of forward momentum--there's always a new training curriculum or learning initiative . If you put real effort into these, you'll get a lot of benefit.

    Cons

    The hours can be long because the work is project based. (On the flip side, you'll also have downtime when there's a lull between projects.)

    Pros

    Having money is always better than not having money, other than that: none.

    Cons

    The absolute most important fact I must translate is that if YOU WANT TO CODE, then you are in the wrong place (yes, even though the job title says "software" AND "engineer"). MAQ in Redmond is responsible for managing the company's many projects, so regardless of your job title, if you work in Redmond, you are very likely going to be nothing but a Project Manager; however, there are rare and infrequent opportunities for actually writing code. So, maybe you'll get lucky?

    Second, you'll have nightly meetings 5 nights a week (Sun - Thur) since the vast majority of your team will likely reside ~13hrs ahead.

    Finally, this review is actually written by someone who access

    Advice to Management

    Please, please call your Project Managers what they are. Please.

    I worked at MAQ Software full-time

    Pros

    Good salary, not long hours. Manager sponsored Friday lunches or dinners almost every week. Not many pros

    Cons

    The managing consultant was a little out of his mind. He thinks he's above everyone else and treats his employees terribly.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees better, do not demean them. Stop insulting them, let them do their work. Do not micromanage
