    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research (Cambridge, MA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Took 1-2 months to receive email about preliminary interview after applying. After was brought in for a second round of interviews with ~15 people in the lab which lasted 3 hours. Then had lunch with the lab and was shown the facilities. Took another month to receive denial of offer.
