I worked at Madison Tyler Holdings full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
Senior Technical Lead is top notch. Would love to work with him again. Head of networking and head of systems are top notch. Would love to work with them again.Cons
Company merged with Virtu. New decisions do not make any sense unless you are part of inside group just trying to cash out with the biggest payout. No real interest in developing a company that will last.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Forget about making headlines and focus on building a company that will still be creating sustainable value long after you leave.Doesn't RecommendNegative Outlook

The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Madison Tyler Holdings in August 2011.Interview Details
They ask difficult questions, I think they're looking for those freak genius types that can answer any brainteaser on the spot - only hire Caltech/Harvard/BYU people from what I can tell.
Sent in my resume through their website, received an email asking for a phone interview. The HR person forgot to send me the interview confirmation, but that's not a huge deal as we had already agreed on a time.
1st round wasn't too tough - the clock hands questions, plus some others described below. Interviewer was very nice and gave compliments on my quick solutions.
2nd round was ok until the second question, which I struggled with greatly. The interviewer was very patient and nice in helping me work out the solution, which took me over 30 minutes since I felt kind of stuck. As soon as we got the correct answer he said "thanks for calling, we'll be in touch" and hung up. I could tell he was amused by how long it took me to get the answer. (FYI this question is the chessboard one below). I haven't officially heard back yet but there's no way they'll want to fly someone out if it takes so long to get a solution at the phone interview stage.Interview Questions
