    I have been working at Solstice full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    1. Culture, the culture is really positive and geared towards working as a team to continually make our clients better in creating some pretty amazing products
    2. Innovation, this company is constantly working to push the envelope and find the cool new stuff.
    3. Military friendly, this company is currently working on building their veterans group. They see the value in the skills and characteristics that veterans can bring over from their military career.
    4. Flat, the organization is flat which empowers all people in the organization. I've talked to the CEO on multiple occasions.
    5. Transparency, there is a huge effort to make sure everyone is comfortable with every change that's coming down the pipeline. The overall communication is really good in my option.

    Cons

    1. FLUX, this company is constantly in motion and working to become better. If you want an organization where things will be predictable for years to come, than this is not the place for you

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    Junior Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Solstice (Chicago, IL (US)).

    Interview

    Shortly after my application was submitted I received a call from a recruiter and after a brief discussion I was instructed to complete a technical challenge.

    The challenge was fun and interesting, it gave me a taste for the type of work that I would likely be doing at Solstice.

    After I completed the challenge I had a phone interview with one of the tech leads at Solstice. We discussed my background, the solution I came up with for the technical challenge, and we talked about Solstice.

    Finally I had an in person interview that was split up into two blocks. One with two of the lead consultants and one with a higher up. Both discussions went well, we discussed my background in depth and I was asked to come up with solutions to a couple of design and coding problems.

    Over all the experience was very positive. Everyone at Solstice was kind, honest, and genuinely seemed to want to help me succeed throughout the interview process.
