    Research Engineer (Algorithm Developer) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Unprofessional HR with car salesman tactics. The company seems to be in urgent need of people . The HR setups a phone interview and never called up on time. The company behaves like a billion dollar startup but tries to low ball and get the best possible deal. There is no money to be made on stocks.

    Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Mountain View, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mountain View, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Audience in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    I had the worst experience with the Audience hiring manager, I am very happy at my current job, where we respect difference of opinion.
    The recruiter emailed me for an onsite interview with the hiring manager for a senior position in the company. I visited the company but the hiring manager did not show up. The recruiter apologized me sincerely and was very impressed with my credentials. After few days, she arranged an interview with company executive and an engineer. Both were very impressed again. Finally, the third half-day interview was arranged with five other senior employees including the hiring manager. Three interviews were fine and everyone was impressed. The fourth person was the hiring manager, who was very negative from the beginning; he also showed his ignorance at few occasions and seemed very narrow minded. He was unable to accept new ideas and the proven facts, may be due to lack of knowledge or ego. Finally, I left the interview in the middle, and informed the company executive and recruiter that I cannot work in such hostile environment.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Audience in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had applied for a role advertised by them. The role was mainly about developing firmware for audio SoCs. Initial round consisted of telephonic interview from US. Lasted for about 30-40 mins. I was asked to explain one of my project in detail and he asked questions based on the same. Technical questions regarding I2C, proposing solution to a remote update of a file on an embedded device. Was called for face to face to their Bangalore office which they were in a process to setup. At F2F they asked me to write a C code for deleting a complete binary tree given pointer to one of the node. One more question related to algorithm was asked. Later they described a job role which was completely different than what I had applied for. It was something like supporting their Korean customers with customizing their software. I told them I wasn't interested.
