    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Nutanix (Richmond, VA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Had a great interview with hiring manager as well as multiple interviews and conversations with upper management and peers. Met with engineering partners as well as channel partners and discussed the value proposition of Nutanix. I felt like it was a bi-directional interview process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Nutanix (Cary, NC) in December 2016.

    Interview

    This was one of the best interviews I have been through. I was interviewed by 6 people individually from varying job roles that I would be interacting with as part of the job. Each one provided insight on the job role and asked questions ranging from technical to personality and leadership.

    Each person was engaged and interesting to talk to. Even though each interview was separate there was no repetition in the questioning. Each one pushed an area further and was a great experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Nutanix in March 2014.

    Interview

    The three coding questions are: Valid Parentheses, FizzBuzz, Traverse root folder. The three problems are not hard but it seems that the interviewer didn't know what the problems exactly mean. He also asked me about how to write a fsck(file system checker) and how to check inode and things like that.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Nutanix (San Jose, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Phone screens (with collabedit) followed by onsite. The process was riddled with delays right from the start as the recruiter was not very responsive. I applied because the company is on the verge of an IPO, and there is money to be made. Plus they seem to be doing reasonably well in terms of sales.

    The interview questions were extremely simple. Nothing complicated, the standard, binary tree, string processing type of questions anyone with some interview preparation should be able to solve without much thinking. I think the cultural fit is more of an issue. They talk a lot about how they will take down the bigger companies which gets tiresome beyond a point, so take this as a cue to show your enthusiasm. Also, looks like they have hired too many folks already for the calendar year and have frozen their head count. So even if you get selected, expect to have a joining date after a few months or maybe after their IPO ?? If you don't get selected you most likely won't hear from the recruiter because they are too busy talking to prospective candidates about how awesome they are.

    In short, the core storage side of this company should be an exciting place to work. I wouldn't recommend the manageability area as it seems below average. Plus their over hiring and then head count freeze doesn't give a good overall impression of their vision or direction.

    Interview

    It's one of those companies that actively want to you apply and then go silent if you are not good fit.I can already feel the culture inside. My former colleague also interviewed there and had a bad outlook.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Nutanix in February 2017.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume at the University Career fair and heard back about the interview two weeks later. The first round of interview was a technical interview through phone. I was given 45 minutes to solve one programming question through Coderpad. The interviewer was professional and I thought the coding question was hard.

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Most unprofessional interview process ever experienced. The interviewer was late to the interview. The person who called me was different from the person I was scheduled to speak with. The interviewer at the other end of the line did not introduce him/herself. Obviously was reading my resume on the phone for the first time. Could easily tell the interviewer was coming up with random questions on the fly to ask me. Asked me very specific and irrelevant questions about syntax. The interviewer was not logged into the technical interview website, so s/he fumbled around for 15 minutes. During the technical portion, which I had only 15 minutes to finish, the interviewer did not talk at all. When I explained the code, the interviewer did not ask me clarifying questions, but understood my algorithm incorrectly.

    How a company conducts interviews reflects a lot about that company's values and culture. I recommend that you do not interview with Nutanix.
