I have been working at Balabit full-time (More than a year)
Great atmosphere in the office; work from home position. Tons of opportunities to learn about what companies are doing in the security space. Technology is highly stable and runs on a Linux core.
Drawbacks are similar at most medium size companies.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Balabit (Budapest (Hungary)).
The first round was with a person from HR. She introduced the company, and ask a few question about me. The next round started with a homework, for me it was entertaining. I had to gave a time frame based on the specification. After I sent them my solution, they invited me for an in site interview, where we discussed about my solution. Of course there was time for general questions from both sides. After that there were a feedback with an offer.
