    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Intellectual Ventures (Seattle, WA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Applied through HuskyJobs at UW. The first round was on campus. There was 2 30 minute interview with 2 people each. The first one was mostly behavioral. The second one was very technical asking a lot of questions about financial statement.

    The second round interview is at there office in Bellevue. There 2 was behavioral interviews that was more conversational and an extremely hard excel test. They don't expect you to complete the whole test because they make it impossible.

    The biggest advice I have is to know what Intellectual Ventures actually does. They are a niche market and they will constantly ask you how does IV work. The IP market is also very unusual, so know about that. Also, ask a lot of questions. They know candidates don't know a lot.But overall, these people are extremely nice, engaging, curious and helpful.

    Interview

    Applied online, contacted by a consulting recruiter, had a nice conversation about a couple of roles. Was told to expect an update once he talked to the HM. Never heard back recruiter responded tersely after 3rd contact attempt by me. After looking at company reviews on this site, I am not at all surprised. Good riddance.
