    The headquarters in Cambridge operates like a small family company in terms of culture, but its a global, long lasting and stable software company. There are not a lot of management layers. The people there are incredibly dedicated to the corporate vision. Most of the executive team have been there for a long time, so there is real stability with the vision, and direction.


    Its not as casual as most software companies and the interview process is rigorous. I wouldn't eve really call these cons - more just a word of warning if you think this is going to be like Microsoft.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at InterSystems in May 2015.


    I applied online and the same day I received a canned email from the recruiting staff. Essentially, it said that they were pleased I applied for the position but before moving on with the recruiting process, I was required to take two assessment tests that would take approximately one hour to complete.

    One was a standard personality assessment. The other was a logic, reasoning test that really made no sense whatsoever. The test was clearly of a very general nature and wasn't applicable to the role I applied for.

    In the end, I bailed out of the process. It's sad when a company wants to open the recruiting process with a series of tests. What's worse is that InterSystems doesn't set an expectation with candidates that they don't want to speak with them unless they pass the assessments first.

    My advice - pick up the phone and call the candidate. Let them know you're excited about their candidacy. Engage the candidate. Spend a few minutes discussing the role, the candidate's background, potential fit from both sides and then discuss steps in the process, including the need to successfully complete the tests for them to move on. This is a negative, biased way to start the employment experience. And, if InterSystems takes a look at what others have said the organization would realize this is worst practice scenario. I'm sure the organization would say they want to hire only the best and the brightest, but this is a bad way of going about it.
