I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Thomson Reuters in August 2009.

Interview Details Referred by an ThomsonReuters employye. Initial communication was with HR over phone and got a request for telephonic round. This was more of filtering process for technically counterfeit candidates. Following which had 4 technical rounds followed by manager round. Suprisingly in these 4 rounds, couple of questions were repeatedly asked - not sure if it was to check if I had really know the stuff. After all had HR round to negotiate on package.

Interview Question – Difference in Java and C command line args index.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Yes I could negotiate. indeed I should thank the employee referred me, he gave me some insight to the salary standard of TR and asked me to demand little more than they offered.
