    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Citrix Systems (Bangalore (India)) in June 2011.

    Interview

    Initially there was a telephonic interview, which lasted for 1.5 hrs, consisting of questions on C, C++, algorithms, OS concepts;

    This was followed by a goto meeting interview, in which you share your desktop and write the code. This consisted of data structure stuff.

    This was followed by a face to face interview, where they again ask about C, C++, OS concepts etc.,

    I was impressed with the engineering manager and the technical panel and their attitude. But the HR had quite an attitude and was arrogant, which really made me look elsewhere. For my friend who works there, this particular HR has this attitude problem, and her linkedin profile indicated that she takes care of hikes etc., and didn't feel that I would work under her, even though the engg. manager was very lively and very good. It looked like a good place to work from the brief amount of time I spent there.

    Interview Questions

    • C, C++, algorithms, OS concepts, which you can answer if you have understood the concepts.   Answer Question

    Staff Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bangalore (India)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Citrix Systems (Bangalore (India)) in December 2010.

    Interview

    Well, the interview was scheduled at 4pm and citrix HR called me and told me to be present at 3:45 .
    and i have reached there at 3.30 itself. Citrix office is pretty impressive and its a new building, however there were no many employees seen in the 1st floor. Hardly i could see 10 to 15 employees and most of the cabins were empty.
    the office is near to the Mg road and you get tempted to work in such a place..
    all the few employees whom i seen are all youngsters.. never seen anyone in formals.. i was the odd one out

    The interviewer called me and came with a Mac laptop...
    The interview was all-in-all in C++, he started with basic C++ questions...to be honest..well i screwed up on the 1st question itself and lost concentration on the whole lot later...
    1st question was difference between pointers and references..i knew the answer..after all i was working in the field for the last 8 years....but could not make it up what he is really expecting...
    After that i almost answered 70% of the questions...but somehow i couldnt make him understand that i was indeed best performer in my current company....well what the heck he cares...but he was professional...and gave me time to think for all questions...
    these are the other questions

    1. copy contructor with parameters, write a copy constructor
    2. what happens when object is created (expected a vtable explanation)
    3. hash table (both insertion and retrieval operations)
    4. list Vs Vector
    5. Templates (not just basic, in depth details and how its used in real time world)
    6. disadvantages of pointers
    7. synchronization examples and uses, problems in synchronization (like deadlock, priority inversion etc and how to solve those)
    8. thread operations (difference between threads and operations)
    9. design patterns (especially singleton, you need to write the code as well as explain other ways to achieve this)

    after the interview is finished..i told him that i didnt perform upto 100% expectations....in turn he said , "how do you know what i expect and what decision i would take"..i didnt reply and i just smiled back ....but i could see from his eyes that he is not interested to hire me....and i myself feeling guilty

    HR told me before that if i clear 1st round , i would go through multiple rounds including one from US guys...
    may be i guessed to get the offer, atleast there will be 3 rounds..and other rounds may be little tougher....
    On the work front, they have products like remote desktop software, conference software like logmein,
    I asked a question what do you guys doing and what products you have...he explained me this in brief and told me that citrix is a big player in this field....i guess its not true...vmware and logmein are the big guys...

    In the interview room, there was a white board which had some test written on it, like reduce backlog , add people etc....
    interesting thing is that "reduce backlog" was pointing at "add people"
    reduce backlog certainly means that they are working on bug fixing which basically in turn means the maintenance of the software...which i am not really comfortable with but was willing to compromise if the pay is good...
    add people means i guess recruiting more people..

    well this is it, this is the 15lak offer ....i totally messed it up inspite of knowing that i am totally eligible for it....
    Be Prepared Guys....thats all i can say
