    I worked at MAVERICK Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Estimating and project execution procedures are world class. Benefits are average and salary range is competitive to the market place. New grad recruiting brought in some extremely talented and bright engineers.

    Cons

    Several key senior managers lack automation and control experience.

    Advice to Management

    Leaders are bullet catchers. They are accountable. They don't sacrifice people on the altar of convenience. They give credit, challenge assumptions, resist conformity and encourage risk taking.

    I worked at MAVERICK Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Unlimited free alcohol at all parties and company events which is actually a con and not a pro.

    Cons

    Management or "leadership" is very unethical and polarizing. Benefits are very expensive and 401k match sub par.

    Advice to Management

    Get some leadership training and stop being so negative and passive aggressive with your talent. I've never met such a group of moody, standoffish jerks.

    Pros

    MAVERICK is a growing company and that means a lot of opportunities to grow with them.

    Cons

    Coming from a much larger company I found some resistance to change that you would not see in a larger company. I think this happens because people feel more personal ownership in the way things have been set up.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing and try to keep emotion out of decisions and actions that directly affect the employees.

    Thank you for your feedback! We understand how the program may seem unorganized at times. We are constantly reviewing the program and trying new ways to improve and enrich the program structure.

    Be more truthful in the transparency.

    I have been working at MAVERICK Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Maverick Technologies has a great company atmosphere. All of the upper management is extremely friendly and always out there to chat. There is also a good amount of freedom in work-life balance.

    Cons

    It's a bit difficult to move up in the organization. They promote people who are capable of only doing one thing up before they hire people with relevant skills across the board. It all depends on how billable an employee is.

    Their pay, insurance, 401K is pretty sub-par. There are a lot more competitive companies out there. They seem to give out the same wages for job title despite where you live, so definitely missing out on competitive pay.

    Projects are hit or miss. Sometimes you get good projects, other times you get projects that will make you want to tear out your hair in frustration. Projects are highly dependent on the Project Manager you get. They will scrutinize every hour on your time card down to a T. There's also a lot of relocation and travel included in the work. If you're not down to travel, they will likely not consider you come time for performance reviews.

    They can't seem to retain top talent. There's a lot of new hires coming in and a lot of senior level employees leaving.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job retaining your top talent. There's a lot of disconnect between upper management and employees that really makes everybody unhappy.

    Pros

    Very professional environmental and family friendly. Fun break room with ping pong and foosball. Would definitely recommend to family and friends.

    Cons

    My position was only part time. They outsource a lot of their accounting so not a lot of work to do.

    Pros

    Challenging work assignments. Good salary and bennies.

    Cons

    Sales to operations hand-off could use some improvement

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    Great culture
    Flexible work schedule
    Platform agnostic so great exposure
    Team oriented
    Small company feel
    Lots of locations and opportunities to travel

    Cons

    When the manufacturing industry slows down, so does work for us so it's either booming or super slow
    Projects very often come up quickly so there isn't much notice as far as travel requirements are concerned

    Advice to Management

    None, they're doing a great job and the new acquisition by rockwell automation should open lots of new doors for our employees and help project work pick up rather quickly

    Pros

    Not much positive to say here. Basic insurance, small 401k employer match.

    Cons

    Hire and fire company that doesn't value their employees. Management is a disaster.
