    Interview

    I found the position through LinkedIn and applied directly on the company website. Apparently they weren't able to find my application even after a few follow up calls and about two months.

    My first interview was over the phone with an HR partner. He was extremely rude and brass. Be ready to answer insistent questions about your detailed salary history including bonuses.

    A week later I had my second interview with the hiring manager over the phone. It was a pleasant conversation focused only on the science and specific experience. It seemed they were in need of a specific skill set and he wanted to make sure I had it.

    A few weeks later, I was invited to an onsite interview in Miami. It started with a 1 hour presentation I was asked to prepare, followed by 7 one on one meetings. The discussion was really positive and focused primary explaining what and how the company functions and understanding my background and fit. They were still forced by HR to ask questions from a piece of paper about some behavioral stuff. It was funny to watch! Almost everyone of them warned me about moving to Miami and how it might be a shock to most people. I appreciated their honesty, but I felt like they lost a lot of people because of this. There was a break mid day for lunch with the hiring manager and a senior director, it was mainly informal and conversational. The day was wrapped with a conversation with an HR partner. Thankfully she was different than the guy over the phone. She was very professional and welcoming.

    The Miami campus is big, but they didn't offer a campus tour.

    A few weeks later, the first rude HR person called me to ask for references from within my current company and previous ones. Then gave me an offer some time later. All my references complained about how rude he was to them.

    I ended up rejecting the offer because of compensation and the employees warnings about Miami.

    Over all my experience was great (minus the extremely rude HR partner over the phone).
