    Pros

    small enough that you can get recognition and attention
    lots of room for growth, opportunities, and learning (It even has a learning hour every week for advancement of my knowledge)
    Great pay, and an understanding of work life balance ( the manager took the time to know where I commuted from and is understanding if I needed to leave early or arrive late due to traffic or family dinners)
    HR team is understanding and happy to direct me to any information I have questions with
    Company is very flexible

    Cons

    Not the right fit if you want a set schedule of things to do everyday
    Very project based, so sometimes it's hectic, and other times it's relaxed which can be stressful if you aren't adaptable to that sort of thing.
    small company means sometimes manager's attention can come across as micromanaging.

    I worked at MAQ Software full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    MAQ Software helps its employees find relevant positions in leading companies in the Seattle and Eastside areas. It consistently checks in and makes sure employees are happy and satisfied in their positions, as well as being challenged.

    Cons

    Most of the positions are contract based so there is not a lot of opportunity for FTE positions.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice to have a little more contact with management during periods between contracts.

    "Right place for young people with desire to learn and take on roles not typically available at early stages of career"

    Pros

    MAQ Software provides great opportunities for young engineers to get exposure as project leads within first couple years of their career. Typically, such opportunities are provided only to people with over 5 years of experience at other organizations. This is invaluable opportunity for recent graduates and people with one or two years of experience.
    Company management provides right framework and rigor that allows / forces software engineers to follow process and learn value of planning and following a consistent methodology.

    Cons

    Currently company focusses only on Microsoft business and technologies. This is not the place for people who want a job that does not require hard-work (50hrs or more per week) and for people who need lot of hand-holding, guidance and training.

    Advice to Management

    Hire one or two business development managers (not program managers who also can do biz dev). Improve reinforcement / recognition of top performers. People need it especially during early phases of career so that they know that they are on the right track.
