comment How can I thoroughly evaluate a prospective employer?
@Aditya (+1), I agree that it needs to be done carefully, and certainly not all of the questions need to be asked to evaluate the company. Many of the questions may be rendered moot once an answer is given that indicates that a weak area. The questions can also be spread across any phone calls and then spread throughout multiple people that are spoken to at the interview. Incidentally, I am less concerned about "getting the job" unless it's a good match with my values. I think part of getting the right job is working for an open-minded employer who is also honest and forthcoming.

@Steven, the set of questions is likely specific to programmers.

comment How can I thoroughly evaluate a prospective employer?
@Developer, you're right it is essentially the same question, except that it belongs on this site. I'm not sure what the policy is about moving old questions to the new more appropriate sites, but I'm willing to consolidate them if possible.

How about "So's your face?"

I am pretty sure that @Jasper was being tongue-in-cheek.

@Etienne, yet another reason to bump up "Learn Scala" on my to-do list!
