Two weeks ago I finished interviewing process with top US IT company, story would be similar.
Bitter feeling stayed for a while.
Conclusions: big companies uses their reputation to exploit potential employees, they don't care much if a bright mind would not be recruited (as they care only not to recruit a bad one, as mentioned prior in comments).
Next time I will consider of asking at least 1st class flights and some 5k usd for talking with me. And if it would not be interesting for them I will just keep working on my own things.
And one thing I thought off ... how it is possible that a developer would hire brighter minds than them self as there is such a thing as loosing job or not getting promoted.
