Staff Software Engineer Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Citrix Systems in April 2014.
Interview Details – First interview: Phone interview with one technical programming question
Invited for onsite interview
4 interviews :
1. A coding question, had to write code on board and then she asked if I can improve the time complexity, gave a better solution. Level wise print of binary tree.
2. Check if 2 strings are anagrams, gave the answer based on hashmap and explained it nicely, interviewer was impressed. Asked another question find maximum ten numbers from array -- used heaps and solved.
3. The interviewer was lil unorganised, he did not even look my resume before asked some questions from my resume and some design question.
4. He was the worst interviewer I have came across, he was asking me question and did not bother to look at the solution was busy with his cell phone, was typing something something.
Overall the interview was not difficult was process is cumbersome, they won't reply you, will behave like they never interview you. :)
Reason for Declining – They take so long time to give the offer and in the process they will not reply your mails.
They behave so indifferent that you don't feel like joining the company which doesnt treat future employees in nice way.

Software Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Citrix Systems in October 2013.
Interview Details – Only went to one round of interviews at the local ShareFile office. The environment is very casual and people are very friendly. I went through 4 interviews during the day.
The first was with the Senior Product Manager, and the man who would be my boss. He just went through my resume and my Github account with me. He asked me some behavioral questions (tell me about yourself, what are your passions, strengths and weaknesses, etc.).
The second interview was a general coding interview with two staff engineers. The questions were about the programming languages I've worked with. They also threw a programming question I had to code in C. After I was done, they asked me to debug it, which was great because I found an error in my answer;
The third interview was with two more engineers but it was more about web concepts: http, RESTful interfaces, Ajax, Cloud development, etc.
The final interview was with the Senior Manager again who just asked a brainteaser. Unfortunately I didn't get it.
Interview Question – Nothing was unexpected or difficult except for the brainteaser. It is long and I don't remember all the details, so I won't post it. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Not much negotiation, since they offered far more than what I expected and the benefits were pretty good.
Software Engineer I Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Citrix Systems in October 2013.
Interview Details – First met a Citrix manager through a campus fair. They had a few positions open for systems programming and networking, which I was very interested in. We set up a phone screen for a few weeks later. The questions weren't too difficult, though I seemed to struggle for the first 5 minutes or so... I was too nervous. But things got better as we moved on.
I was asked to interview on-site the next month. I was interviewing at a lot of places, and what I really liked about Citrix was the team and culture. Everyone was ridiculously nice and understanding. I was asked about my classes and projects from my resume, and I was also given about 2 hours worth of straight whiteboard problem solving. There was also a social interview at lunch. Finally, I had my last interview with a senior person in the department about what I'd be doing here and what was expected of me.
Interview Question – There were also a lot of questions about data structures, bit manipulation, and basic algorithms.
Given a char array of space separated words, parse a second char array to print which of these words are present in the second array. Ignore duplicates. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Coming right out of college, I didn't have much room for negotiation. I was able to get a few thousand dollars more than what they initially offered though.
