    I have been working at Archon Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The day to day is positive and collaborative. Being able to work from home is nice, and almost everyone is approachable.

    Cons

    Though the team collaborates, your contribution is still likely to be overlooked.

    And the biggest con is that there is very very little job growth if you're not a developer.

    Though the culture is positive the employee turnover is quite high.

    Advice to Management

    Play to the strengths of your staff, and find ways to have growth for everyone, not just your developers. Because your soft skill staff will leave if they stay complacent, and that's a lot of product knowledge they'll take with them.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Archon Systems (Toronto, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    The application process was straightforward and very methodical – part due to the smart people at the company but I also believe part because they have refined it after doing it some many times. They seem to post a job and then interview for it, and you don't get the job, only to see the job posted a month later. You are required to do an assignment and if you make it through that round, you have to do another presentation presenting your assignment. That is after the first interview. So in total 3+ interviews.
