Principal Software Engineer Interview

Principal Software Engineer
San Jose, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 months - interviewed at F5 Networks in September 2011.

Interview Details – Hiring process took much longer than expected. The recruiting team was efficient but the time before the decision was made by engineering department was extremely long. The process looked totally stucked at some point and I was close on accepting the alternative offer. But overall, I am happy that waited.

Negotiation Details – No room for negotiation was offered, not for the title not for the salary.
