    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milpitas, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at LSI in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    There was an initial telephonic screening. Then there was 1:1 interview with the Hiring Manager which was more of a run through the Team and Company details. Later it was a panel interview which was more of a discussion than question and answers. That part was really great for a recent college graduate. The final offer took time as executive leadership was on tour and they could have been more attentive and quick in closing the offer process

    Negotiation Details
    There was a good amount of negotiation about the joining bonus, The final outcome was neutral with 50% acceptance.
