I have been working at Berkshire Hathaway full-time (More than a year)
The admin are amazing. The management invest in the staff. Owners are constantly investing in new technologies. Three more words.
The money is not as high as I would like. I don't feel challenged enough. I would like to be a salaried employee, as opposed to a commissioned employee.
Advice to Management
I have none to give.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Berkshire Hathaway (San Francisco, CA) in October 2011.
After phone interview with hiring manager, invited to face-to-face with the team. Several 'what-if' scenarios presented having to do with interactions with subject matter experts. I believe they were interested in diplomacy skills. Technical skills tested via example of output from database and question "How would you frame your script to pull these results?". Also quizzed on expertise with requirements gathering and documentation, test methodologies, data warehouse concepts. Group of five people on interview panel. Not stressful; relaxed environment.
