One of the things I focus on, is what are your tenets, or philosophies? What is your culture? Will it clash with a potential employer? Remember, you are interviewing them as much as they're interviewing you.

I've had friends go off and tell me about their newest adventures with a new position. Then they mention a handful of details that would clash with my personal culture.

A good example might be, I'm a commandline & CLI person. Front-End, webdev, Windows, GUI-based tools ... if that's a primary focus for a position, I definitely won't be happy or productive.

True. The question is how to research this systematically? Which things to ask?

This could be considered a sub-category under "how to pass the interview". Passing would also involve no culture-clash.
