    Starting to see too much red tape and turning into a very "corporate" environment

    Senior Cloud Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Acquia (Boston, MA) in September 2017.


    Contacted by Acquia recruiter, phone calls with director, another with manager. On site interview with 4 people. Was told "not a fit", after the in-person. Surprised after 2 different phone calls, with technical questions, yet still wanted on-site in Boston. If they couldn't figure out "not a fit" from the 2 phone calls, then they're incompetent. Suspect it's an age thing. If you're over 50, don't bother with this place.
