    Interview Details

    I gave two written test than they called for two technical f2f rounds and HR round only if I clear first two technical rounds.
    As per them, I cleared two technical rounds and they asked me to wait in a meeting room for HR round. I waited for 10-15 minutes then they said "HR Manager is busy in meeting. We will call you". I wrote emails, called them and no response, completely unprofessional.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Informatica in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    It started with two written tests for screening followed by a series of F2F interviews. Writtend tests mostly focused on Datastructures and Core Java (Esp Concurrency), bitwise operators, inheretance and some O.S. concepts like deadlocks,paging etc.

    In F2F interviews discussions happened on popular algorithmic questions like Max Subarray problem, No. of BST's from Sorted Array and java questions related to inheritance,concurrency (esp volatile keyword) and type casting.

    Second F2F round was problem solving round where they see how you approach an unseen problem. They help and give hints along the way. Questions from resume are also asked.

    But overall experience of interview was made bitter by lame H.R. No response from him after numerous emails and phone calls. He says neither yes nor No which i thought was unprofessional .

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Informatica in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    HR will brief about the opening on phone.
    2 rounds of tech interview by people belonging to your team.
    1 round of interview by people outside your team
    1 hr round
    1 manager round
    1 round by senior technical person like staff engineer/ architect/ principle engineer
    1 round by BU head/director

    Few more rounds once you enter in the company although informal with 'other' people in the team.
    3 months of probation with new employee orientation for 2 days where people brag about the company and where it's product stands in gartner magic quadrant.

    If this does not leave you frustrated, you get more in terms of pestering employees/ co-workers on a daily basis.
