I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at SunGard in May 2009.
Interview Details – The recruiter who contacted me and the hiring manager who interviewed me one on one were both very nice and smart people, but had already formed an opinion of me based on my resume. The entire process focused more on the organization rather than the position and its requirements.

Senior Associate Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at SunGard in October 2011.
Interview Details – An interview can be defined as the oral test of a candidate who had applied for a post for employment or admission.
As no one knows about his future like it one cannot know about the questions to be asked by an interviewer.
As the field of knowledge is very vast so the field of questioning is very vast. Interviewer is at a liberty to ask question from any field of knowledge.
This is luck of the candidate if his field of knowledge coincides with that of the members of the interview board. This is the matter of fate if the replies appeal to them.
The difference of giver and seeker makes the members of the interview board on the superior side as they are givers and we are seekers.
Interview Question – Why do you change your stream? Answer Question

Solution Architect Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at SunGard.
Interview Details – The interview was a good-cop/bad-cop two-man tag team approach. One interviewer was very friendly and open, the other was aggressive and spent the whole interview trying to trip me up. The interview itself had no coverage of influencing skills, soft skills, architecture skills, or sales skills. The entire process was a highly focused on a technical Q&A where the bad cop tried to break me.
Interview Question – Highly technical details of Fibre Channel over Ethernet and OSPF to the level that a subject matter expert would be expected to answer (i.e. not an architect). Answer Question
Reason for Declining – I didn't want to work for the bad cop. He gave me an extremely negative impression of the company. I also didn't want to work at their Heathrow offices part time (they are in the middle of nowhere).

Second with the director, quick one in order to see whether I can fit in the team.
Last with senior analyst: very long, assessing whether I have got the right skills for the role.
