    Pros

    Great culture, wonderful people, a true learning environment. Awesome perks and "fun things to do"!

    Cons

    Company closed down too soon...it would have been nice if the parent company found us alternate positions in the company or "kept us on" until we found alternate work.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeksinterviewed at CIDC (Cambridge, MA) in January 2011.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted by a recruiter about 5 weeks later. After passing the phone screen the recruiter scheduled another phone interview with the hiring manager the week after. After also passing this step the recruiter scheduled a series of in person (1:1 interviews).
    The 1:1 interviews were held in a tiny, windowless, and cold (atmosphere) conference room. The adjacent work area (cubicles) also looked very cold, no decorations etc. was visible.
    I met with the recruiter, the hiring manager, a director (the hiring manager's boss), and one senior manager (works closely with the hiring manager).
    The interview focused on the position, my experience, and how I could bring value to the position as well as how I would handle various situations. Everybody was friendly but it was difficult to see why these people enjoyed working at CIDC.
    After the interviews I followed up with a thank you note, i.e. sending an email to all 4 people I had met.
    5 weeks later I still had not heard anything, though they promised they would get back to me within 2-3 weeks, I followed up again. The recruiter asked me for some patience.
    When I followed up after an additional 4 weeks I learned the recruiter had left the company. Hence I tried to follow up with the hiring manager etc. No response at all.

    Bottom line: CIDC is on my black list of companies where I will never ever apply!
