I applied through college or university and 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.

Vienna, VA

I applied through college or university and 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.

The offer was given two weeks after the last review.

Interview Question – No strange quesitons actually. Questions were asked about customer compliant handling and emergent request acceptance.   Answer Question
