    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Brocade Communications in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter from Brocade to set up a telephonic interview. The interview was relatively easy and consisted of questions on sockets, VLANs, TCP/IP, ARP. Then they asked about my projects, some operating systems concepts like difference between thread and process. Finally he concluded the interview saying he thinks I am suitable for a software engineer in test and not a software developer. Key point being not a single coding question asked yet he arrives at that conclusion.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Brocade Communications in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    There was an initial phone interview with the hiring manager, which consisted of only technical Qs. Later there was an onsite interview with written coding round and five 1:1 interviews. Interviewers were team members with varying experience. Most Qs were technical networking related. The coding round consisted of 3 programming Qs with 1.5 hrs. There was no review of code after the interview. All in all it was a pleasant experience. Very disappointing that I could not get an offer.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Brocade Communications in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had posted my profile over Naukri. Brocade HR took my resume from there and called me for a f2f interview on August 28th 2014. I went to their site, and found that HR was not picking the call, and for which I had to wait for half an hour. After that some guy came and took me to some meeting room and asked me to wait there. That guy came to the meeting room and said, he got my resume some 15 minutes back and he wanted to hear from me.

    This entire process looked like unplanned or not a well structured one. First impression about the company itself got reduced. If they cant just plan for an interview, what can they plan for the employees or customer?

    He had a look at my resume and said he will have few basic questions.

    He started with allocating memory for 2-d array dynamically. Then it was followed by writing an efficient program for prime number. Later a question on linked list, to find and break the loop in a linked list.

    I felt, the interviewer was expecting all the solutions to be of similar lines of how he thinks of the problem solution. Hence had to take my time to explain my views to him. Overall not a good experience.

    Interview Details

    First there was a written test. A number of technical, mainly from Clang, questions were asked. Then there were two coding questions, on an online compiler. One was easy, other was dynamic programming based. Interview was purely technical, based on algorithms and data structures.
    Work atmosphere is fine, but you will have a lot of work to do.
