    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Progress (Boston, MA (US)) in April 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process what pretty straight forward. There were several interviews starting with the HR manager and then my direct boss. They were quick to respond and honest in their feedback.

    Average Interview

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Progress (New York, NY (US)) in February 2014.

    I met with the recruiter, the hiring manager, the hiring VP, and a peer. The hiring manager was super nice and the recruiter was helpful throughout the process. The hiring VP was nice as well. The peer meeting was the most helpful--there was a good rapport with this person and I was able to ask a lot of detailed questions regarding the role. The good, bad, and ugly--which was nice transparency during an interview

    It was a 3 hours interview. I went to the progress software in Morrisville. I thought interviewers will ask me to code.
