I have been working at Extensis full-time (More than 10 years)
Extensis is an extremely successful company that offers employees a good work/life balance. Management sets realistic expectations and has confidence in their employees to get the job done once they've proven themselves. In the office there is a relaxed atmosphere. The turnover at Extensis is very low (which tells you all you need to know). The benefits, location, company events, and views from the office are also a nice perk.
The marketplace we sell into is evolving and is more competitive than it used to be. The company is doing a great job of being proactive and finding competitive advantages.

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Extensis in October 2014.
The phone screen consisted of an HR manager confirming my qualifications. She was upfront on next steps and kept in touch as the weeks passed on if I was still in the running for the position. When I was notified of the opportunity to come in for an interview, the HR manager informed me of the dress style and the people who would interview me, which allowed me to do some additional research on them in advance of the interview. I was also provided with forms to complete for reference and background checks. During the on-site interview, I met with two members of the HR team and two employees who the person hired for the position would work with on a regular basis. The duration for each meeting was about 30 minutes. I'm not sure if non-HR employees were both having a bad day, but neither came across as personable or offered any real insight into their day to day to help me fully understand how the role interacts with their duties. It honestly put me off the company. I came prepared with questions for each about the company's culture, the tools to run their programs, top 3 things they'd want this person to prioritize in the first 45 days, etc. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to ask questions of everyone or the answers I expected weren't offered. One of the interviewers kept asking question after question with no time for me to interject my own questions to them. The questions posed to me were fairly routine -- asking about my background/experience, the usual "tell me about a time you…" scenario questions, etc. My final impression: there are different types of software companies -- those that promote their culture online and actually live and breathe it, and those who promote a culture online, but it's not reality. From what I experienced, this company falls into the latter group.
- There weren't any difficult questions. They were mostly the usual "tell me a time you..." or questions inquiring about my previous professional experiences. Answer Question
