Carefx was aquired by Harris (a military contracting company) about 1.5 years ago. As Harris has taken control, they have instituted more and more process and procedures (probably taken directly from the military contracting side of the house) to the point now that process has become more important than progress. This is stifling creativity and making the administrative overhead so burdensome that it is many times better to ignore problems (even coding issues!) than to go through the process to fix them.
Advice to Management
Run the company as a money-making (aka profitable) commercial venture instead of letting the government side of the company bleed over and smother the commercial side.
The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Carefx (Scottsdale, AZ) in August 2011.
The interview process started with an initial phone interview with a senior manager. After that, there was a second phone interview which was entirely technical and pretty grueling. The third (and last) interview was an on-site interview that lasted about 5 hours. I interviewed with 5 different people during that time, some of the interviewers asked technical questions, some mostly just engaged in conversation to determine the quality of the fit between me and the organization.
After the interview process ended, an offer was extended within 5 days. At that point drug screening and a background check were done.
There was some room for negotiation on salary, but I was coming into the organization with a lot of experience and revelant skills.
