    No teamwork. Work alone all the time, if you have a bug or problem, you have nobody to talk to.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at University of Pittsburgh.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with Pitt through a phone screen which lasted about 30 minutes. Was fairly straightforward. Came to campus and spent full day interviewing. Interview included 30 minute presentation and several interview sessions with a variety of different groups of people. I then waited 6 months before receiving an offer. I confirmed later that this delay wasn't because I wasn't their first choice, it's because HR at Pitt is very slow - think sloths, riding a molasses river, in January.
