I applied online and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Think Big Analytics in February 2014.
Interview Details – Took a little over a month. First round was a technical Skype call focused on OOP and Java. 2nd Round was Skype with focus on problem solving and past experience. 3rd Round was in-person panel focusing on technical, problem solving, and teamwork. Last was 2 skype calls with HR and CEO focusing on past experiences.
Know your core OOP and Java. Be honest and straightforward since it is a small company and all the interviewers talk directly to each other.

Negotiation Details – The offer was aligned to what I was looking for so I did not negotiate.
I applied in-person and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Think Big Analytics in November 2013.
Interview Details – Hiring is a work in progress, Think Big is trying to ensure a good experience on both sides of the process. Expect technical interviews from an online screen to an in person white board session. Remember to focus on the goal rather than the details - consulting is often a problem solving or thinking on your feet exercise.
Interview Question – Most people get too focused on the details. Be confident. if you know the answer right away you are probably correct - don't second guess yourself. Also, show your work, Think Big likes to understand how people problem solve. Answer Question

Interviewed at Think Big Analytics
Interview Details – 4 rounds of interviews while 2 were technical and 2 were functional.
I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Think Big Analytics in December 2011.
Interview Details – I went through one technical phone interview, one non-technical phone interview. Then three in-person interviews: two technical, one non-technical (all back to back). However, they have revamped their interview process since then (two years ago) so it's pretty different now. I think there is potentially another phone screen, and 4 in-person interviews. Plus potentially a chat with upper management (CEO or President) for senior roles.
Interview Question – They asked a few questions about statistics and machine learning- Naive Bayes, Logistic Regression, and Hidden Markov Models. I had enough of a familiarity with all of them to answer reasonably, but I'm still not sure why they asked about these. Again, that was two years ago, so the questions have changed a lot.
