I applied through an employee referral and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Quintiles in December 2009.
Interview Details – Submited resume through current employee in department. He forwarded to HR but was also able to contact hiring manager for 'unofficial' updates. Interview was 3 hours, 1 with HR, 1 with Director of group, 1 with Peer for technical breadth. Took a while to get official offer from HR.
Interview Question – What was the worst mistake you made on a production server? ... And what did you do to resolve the issue? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – The offer was the offer. Much better than my previous position as I was seriously underpaid. But looked good to me so I accepted.
