I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at MicroStrategy in March 2014.

Interview Details

First interview on campus with Normal interview questions about resume, and then ended with two analytical questions. Then received invitation to on site interview for the following week. On site consisted of 3 separate 45 min interviews each ending with analytical questions. Culture seemed relaxed, and people were very friendly.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at MicroStrategy in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    Received a 1:1 on-campus interview from college recruiting. Questions were easy/straightforward and ended with one brainteaser.
    Heard back about a week later and scheduled a 1/2 day on-site interview. The office building was nice. Everyone seemed fairly laid back and casual, as was the interviews (3 round, about 30 minutes each). The questions again were straightforward, no behavior questions even. Each interviewer also asked 3 brain teasers each.
    Received an offer about one week later.
