CIC is a provider of office space to startups, large businesses, non profits, and organizations of all stripes. As a service provider, CIC provides the best possible work environment for clients, but staff of CIC similarly enjoy the benefits. The team is also very friendly, fun, supportive and intelligent.

Getting an Interview

- No OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at Cambridge Innovation Center (Cambridge, MA) in July 2015.
I applied online and was quickly (within 4 days) contacted by their recruiter to complete the online interview (basically a screening call, but over video). I ended up bypassing that part of the interview because I had a reference from within. I also expressed interest in a position working closely with the CEO, because I had appropriate experience. After expressing interest in the second position, I was immediately asked to come in for an interview a week later. The interview was with the current Assistant to the CEO and their head of talent acquisition. We talked for an hour and discussed my professional experience and how I would contribute to the company. Afterwards, I was guided to another room where I took a character assessment on my personal laptop. Once that was complete, I left. A couple days later, I was contacted and asked to take the character assessment again, because something went wrong with my first test. This made me nervous, but I obviously took the assessment again. The next week I was informed that they would not be continuing the interview process with me as they felt it was not the right fit. I'm concerned that a) I bombed the character assessment because I am terrible at taking tests and b) if I had focused my interest in one position I would have had a more successful interview. I asked for any feedback they could give as I continue with my search and was informed that it is kept confidential - fair enough. Overall, it was a nice experience and I learned to tread lightly and to be thoughtful with my applications, as a general interest in the company may not be the best approach.
