    I worked at Sourcefire


    Awesome culture, didn't have to PC around everyone, managers were able to get things done quick and a lot of smart people.
    Free lunch
    Free sodas, juice, red bulls, etc.
    dirt cheap vending machine items (25 cents each)


    Bought out by Cisco... :(

    Created too many processes to easily get things done.

    Application Details

    The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Sourcefire.

    Interview Details

    I applied in April 2014 through HR who forwarded my resume to the QA manager. I was interviewed on phone by three people who were the experts on the team. The next day I received an email inviting me for onsite interview in the following week. Was informed about the decision the next week. The process took less than three weeks from receiving an email for a phone interview to being hired.interview was very long. Do not expect it to be easy for interns or more about your resume. They care about what they need not what you know.
