    The benefits are great. There is a constant steam of new work to keep things fresh.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Georgia Tech Research Institute.

    Interview

    I spoke on the phone with several employees and management, then did a 1 hour technical review. I freaked out and interpreted the task wrongly as something far more difficult and only realized it 5 minutes before the interviewer called back. I had a half finished program to answer a far more challenging question than was actually asked of me, but I walked through it with the interviewer and he took the time to walk through it with me and saw that I was at least on the right track, then discussed the actual simpler problem. By a textbook reading, it could be considered a failure, but instead he wanted to evaluate me on the criteria that were meaningful to the job, and I got the offer.

    Interview Questions

    • I was given a tree data structure in several states, and asked to determine what the data structure was, and to implement it with the requisite operations.   Answer Question
