    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Medidata Solutions in July 2016.

    Interview

    The hiring process is pretty straightforward it began with an initial screening with the recruiter. This was followed by a second in depth phone screen. Next, I was selected as a candidate worthy for F2F so was flown in to their Jersey office. The
    office was impressive, people looked happy to be there, and not stuffy. I advanced to next round which included 5 more phone interviews.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Medidata Solutions (New York, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    A Skype interview with an HR person that was one of the most condescending professional experiences of my life, and I've been at this for a while. Standard questions about companies I've worked for, including employee size and revenue, followed with a very self-satisfied "we're a bit bigger than you're used to." Also wanted a complete salary history which I politely refused to give, preferring to focus instead on the target range I had already specified, and that's where it really went south. HR person was quite insistent that they needed that information and asked it of everyone, not just me. Then said to me, "Is it because you made less? Is that why you won't tell me?" Never heard from them again and grateful for it.

    Senior Voice Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Medidata Solutions.

    Interview

    Had a phones interview where Medidata was late on the call and didn't even have a conference bridge as there were more than 2 parties on the call. When Medidata finally called there voice quality was terrible. I could barely hear them over the phone.

    The second interview was in person and the manager looked very unprofessional with a very wrinkled Polo shirt and his hair looked like he just woke up.

    The interview itself was very awkward as they asked me the same question more than once and used a third party vendor to ask me technical questions about security when there was no security on my resume but felt compelled to asked me a question since I answered all of his technical questions correctly he felt to ask me a question on a topic that I did not have expertise on.

    Finally the director has the biggest ego and thinks working for a large financial bank defines who he is but he is a terrible manager just by looking at the current Voice infrastructure Medidata has. This manager contradicts himself by telling you that he wants you to have a work life balance but then ask if your comfortable working a lot of overtime, traveling to Jersey which is a 2 hour drive and traveling overseas to their remote sites.

    I would not recommend working here if you are a skilled engineer but if your just starting out in your career it would good to start with for one year then leave. You don't want to be accustomed to this type of company culture. Stay away from this firm.

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Medidata Solutions.

    Interview

    The hiring manager reached out via email and asked me to send clips. She then invited me to an in person interview. The interview was very casual, and went exceptionally well. The interviewer asked basic questions about my experience and then told me that there were actually two open positions and asked me which I preferred, which kind of threw me off. He insinuated that I'd get to pick the one that fit better with my skills, and that I pretty much got the job but they first needed to figure out where they were going with this role. Then I never heard back from him or the hiring manager, despite reaching out a number of times.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Medidata Solutions (New York, NY) in August 2016.

    Interview

    A complete waste of your time. HR would schedule calls and then never take them. Getting a Google hangout took forever and zero feedback was given. I don't even think they're actually hiring, I think they're just sorting through candidates.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Medidata Solutions (New York, NY) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Applied via employee referral. The entire process took over one month. 2 weeks after applying, I was contacted by HR coordinator. Scheduled a phone interview with HR. She never showed up for the call. I followed up with e-mail and managed to reschedule a call. Two weeks later after HR pre-screening, I had an interview with the hiring manager on google hangout. She wanted to understand my background, shared her vision for the lead UX designer role, and explained the process for in-person interview. I followed up with a Thank You email and never heard back. I'm rating the experience "negative" as the process was too long.
