    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Akamai (Bangalore (India)) in April 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of 2 telephonic and 1 video conference, as I was based of of bangalore, and 3 face to face rounds at their office in Bangalore. The first two rounds were purely technical. In the 3rd video conference round , I was given few business requirements and asked to code over skype. I was then asked to come to there office in Bangalore. The next round was a techno-functional round with the manager. After which I was interviewed by their director which was mainly on the work that I had done and few puzzles. The last round was the HR round, which was mainly on my work and few very simple questions. The overall interview process was very impressive. I was impressed by way they facilitated the interviews and the type of questions asked. Most of the questions asked were mainly based on scenarios and not on bookish questions as I have seen in other companies.

    Interview Questions

    • Most of the questions asked were based on scenarios and the interviewers tried to confuse you with the answers you gave.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Akamai pays really well to the right candidate. Negotiation was like a piece of cake. Infact they offered me more than I was expecting.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Akamai (Bangalore (India)) in March 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process went smooth. I had initial telephonic interview after which there was an online coding test that I had to clear. After this I was called onsite for the other rounds. I was again put through a live coding test that comprised of three realtime situations and I had to code for each. Followed by a 1:1 which was more like an IQ cum logical test. After these I was put through 3 calls all on different days. These calls were with the higher folks from the US which was more like a personality and working style compatibility checks. Then came the HR round and the final compensation negotiations.

    Interview Questions

    • None as such. Only thing that surprised was that the realtime live coding rounds where I was asked to write three plugins. It was unexpected.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was not much negotiation that happened and the offer was decent enough to be accepted.
