    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at FireEye (New York, NY) in July 2017.


    The process was excellent, well organized and the recruiter was very responsive through each step. The company moves quickly so be prepared and flexible to align with the recruiters schedule. Overall, I think FireEye has the best process and overall candidate experience compared to 30+ interviews I went through.
