    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Cadence Design Systems.

    Interview Details

    Was not offered a position after first interview due to no experience with Cadence tools. Found another job using Cadence tools and after a year I was hired. The interview was with the hiring manager and just one other engineer. Some very tough questions regarding my design experience and knowledge of the tools. They were very professional and the culture seemed like a great fit.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Cadence Design Systems.

    Interview Details

    was never formally interviewed by Cadence. The manager hired me used to work in the same company in my previous job. So we know each other very well. Also, being educated as an electrical engineer, I was very familiar with Cadence's product and line of business. So I took the opportunity to join and moved on to negotiation of salary.
