What insiders say about…
Being a semi-large software development house, sometimes it is difficult to see actual fruits of labour - something you can point to and say "I did that". However, there is enough so that you feel like you are contributing.
Very flat structure. Flexible hours, friendly people. Playing indoor soccer with them at lunchtimes is great!
I was asked technical questions regarding object oriented programming and design. I was also asked about my knowledge regarding agile software development practices, and my ability to cope in a small team environment and conflict resolution skills. Lastly, I was asked about my goal in the short and long term.
Be technically adept in terms of object oriented programming and a programming language of choice (typically Java, C# or C++). Socially be confident but humble and able to communicate clearly regarding both technical and non-technical subjects.
Flexible working hours. Core hours is typically between 10am-4pm, however an 8 hour/day work time is expected. R&D employees are free to come and go as they wish within reason.
The pay is quite fair for the efforts given
Managers are easy to contact and communicate with. Praise and recognition tend to be very situational, dependent on the project assigned as well as ability to impact the company.
Training is mostly done informally. This is currently being re-vamped, but during my time it was mostly skills and familiarity with coding and process
Promotion to certain levels happen automatically. Often spaces open up to move into team leadership and sometimes into management, but overall the promotion is automatic and closely tied to how long you've been at the company
The company will hire anyone as long as they are able to meet our criteria and they can conform to our culture.
Our graduate program is open to everyone.
We have company policies set in place, we hold certain events such as harmony day to acknowledge our multicultural diversity.
