    I have been working at Berbee Information Networks

    Pros

    The environment is great, very smart people, a lot of collaboration, someone always willing to help another in need. The pay is great and working with the newest technologies available from top name vendors never gets old. Berbee provides their employees with all the tools needed to get the job done if they do not have it already. The first day you start there, it's like Christmas with all the equipment that is brand new and top of the line. By far the most technology advanced company I have worked for with some of the smartest consultants in the nation.

    Cons

    Was bought by CDW Corporation and has had an interesting intergration. The purchase was great for Berbee to provide more resources for the consultants and helped CDW profit in implementing the technologies they are selling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None, excellent job.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Berbee Information Networks.

    Interview Details

    After two phone interviews, I was brought in to interview before a panel of developers and software project manager. They were all very helpful and nice, but definitely asked probing questions.

    Before the interview began I was given a demonstration of the primary product (InformaCast) that the company produces. It is a very cool product, and is very complicated. One point that most applicants miss when they are brought in is that that demo is part of the interview. They want to see if you're a) paying attention, b) able to ask probing questions- how does this work, how does that work?, c) capable of grasping the complexity of the product after asking a few good questions.

    The best advice I can give to prospective interviewees is to try to give the interview team as much information about why you are a good fit for the job and the company. If you don't slip up and reveal anything that isn't harmful to your chances, but at the same time, you don't demonstrate that you are going to be a contributor and a good cultural fit, then you will not stand a chance of getting hired.

    Play up your strengths and explain but don't dwell on your deficiencies- if you are a good fit, they will hire you even if you're not perfect.

    Interview Questions
    • Pay careful attention to the instructions given in emails by the recruiter. If you ignore them (and show up late, for example) it shows that you aren't careful or that you haven't considered this interview as important as you should have.   View Answer
