    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at CIDC (Cambridge, MA) in January 2011.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted by a recruiter about 5 weeks later. After passing the phone screen the recruiter scheduled another phone interview with the hiring manager the week after. After also passing this step the recruiter scheduled a series of in person (1:1 interviews).
    The 1:1 interviews were held in a tiny, windowless, and cold (atmosphere) conference room. The adjacent work area (cubicles) also looked very cold, no decorations etc. was visible.
    I met with the recruiter, the hiring manager, a director (the hiring manager's boss), and one senior manager (works closely with the hiring manager).
    The interview focused on the position, my experience, and how I could bring value to the position as well as how I would handle various situations. Everybody was friendly but it was difficult to see why these people enjoyed working at CIDC.
    After the interviews I followed up with a thank you note, i.e. sending an email to all 4 people I had met.
    5 weeks later I still had not heard anything, though they promised they would get back to me within 2-3 weeks, I followed up again. The recruiter asked me for some patience.
    When I followed up after an additional 4 weeks I learned the recruiter had left the company. Hence I tried to follow up with the hiring manager etc. No response at all.

    Bottom line: CIDC is on my black list of companies where I will never ever apply!
