    Interview

    One phone interview followed by an in person interview that included a talk. If you are in healthcare and want to apply machine learning, this will be a decent place. But for people who want to work as a machine learning researchers, this is not the place. There was a silly 1 hour non technical interview that was a waste of time. The people are nice but it is better to work in an industry as a data scientist than philips.
