    Avantages

    OPIS is pretty laid back and offers a lot of opportunity to learn real software development, particularly Microsoft technologies (.NET Framework/Core, SQL Server) and AWS infrastructure. There is little micro-managing and reasonable schedule flexibility, so long as you meet your commitments. The majority of the people are friendly and helpful. All in all a great place to start your career.

    Inconvénients

    OPIS has become steadily more corporate, cheap, and bureaucratic since being acquired by IHS Markit. There is an increased push to use contractors in "cheaper" countries, to not spend money on travel or team building activities, and to file the proper paperwork at all levels. At the same time there is little corporate oversight over how the business is run, so bad leadership continues.

    More importantly, OPIS has never known how to appraise, train, and reward developers beyond their early years. IT managers receive little/no training as managers, spend most time on projects rather than coaching people, and have no real influence on employee compensation/promotion. Upper management doesn't track employee contributions, but judge everything on personal impressions that are impossible to change.

    If you are not one of the handful of people obviously on the fast-track to success here, do not stick around more than five years.

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris 3 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à Oil Price Information Service (OPIS) (Gaithersburg, MD (États-Unis)).

    Entretien

    Interview started with an introduction into the company and position. Then transitioned into the average behavioral questions. Some were a little strange such as the Burger question. They were clearly looking for you to take the blame but was given a scenario in which the blame is (in the real world) actually on the company. Ended up talking about being able to accept blame/take responsibility.

    Then came the coding questions. Was handed a piece of paper and told to hand write the code. They didn't have any pencils and I only had my pen. They also pretended to talk, joke around, move things around the table to mimic typical office environment. Was a little stressful while you are handwriting code with a pen while 3 people talk and wait for you to finish.

    While I struggled with some of the code, I don't know how I did as I never heard back. I'm assuming I wasn't selected for the position.
