    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Cirrus Logic (Austin, TX) in May 2012.

    Interview

    They are very good in planning and scheduling the interview . Atleast in my case they were. They send you the topics they normally interview for that particular position. You can have a look at them but most questions will be simple in the first round . Manager calls and tests basics of digital design in first interview . Later in the second interview they become more specific to the job profile. After this they normally take you for a round of onsite interviews. And mostly inform about their promptly.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cirrus Logic (Austin, TX) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Only one phone interview. But it depends on managers. Other people recruited by a different manager may get two, maybe even more phone calls for an internship. The company focus on DSP chips. So DSP is included in the topics for sure, no matter it is digital or analog position.

    Interview Questions

    • Verilog question with additional requirements. Design a FSM providing fibonacci sequence with enable and reset. Output should be immediate.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    The company is listed as one of Greatest Company to Work, but only in the small and medium business list. Haven't go for it yet, but as far as I know it is in TX. Said to be quite hot in summer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Cirrus Logic (Austin, TX) in October 2010.

    Interview

    A phone screen followed by a couple of on-site visits. The interviews were highly technical and specific to the type of work encountered in the workplace. The employees exhibited neutral-positive behavior. The sentiment was bullish on the future of the company.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain the sequence of events from the time a key is pressed on a keyboard to a character appearing on the monitor.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The negotiations phase was high pressured and seemed to place excess emphasis on current pay. It's best to avoid answering direct questions about current pay and to provide a range instead. The organization appeared to be reluctant to offer. Even though I was informed by external sources that they offer sign-on bonuses, I was not offered anything.
