What you like about Software AG or your job

Sumit F, Technical Support Analyst  (center-blue shirt) --Well, there are plenty of reasons. One which stands out is that we get to interact with students who aspire to be employees of Software AG. I went to George Mason for a career fair as part of software AG’s hiring team. We talked about current job openings and Software AG’s offerings to its customers. Not so long ago, I was a student and actively hunting for jobs. It’s pretty cool to be on the other side of the spectrum! I enjoyed the overall experience a lot. -

    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Software AG (Reston, VA).


    Met once with the hiring manager, and once with the current HR team members. Had a follow up phone conversation with the recruiter, and the employee who referred me. Was extended an offer within a few days of the interview. It was a very standard interview process.
