    Reasons for Declining

    Netgear India does not exist - There is currently a company Mars telecoms which is the ODC for Netgear - They have an office in Bangalore which has a board "Netgear" and they try to cheat people by saying they are in-fact Netgear India - I was offered 40 % hike - turns out its 10 % actual salary and 30 % company performance and individual performance - absolute rip-off these guys

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at NETGEAR in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is very long. It started with a phone interview which last about 30 minutes. It took head hunter 10 days to call back for an on-site 1:1 interview. I met 4 persons including the hiring manager in one afternoon. All interviewers are from engineering organization, no HR. A few of them asked for very detail technical questions. I was able to answer most of them.
    I didn't hear from them for 10 days. Then they called to arrange another on-site interview. I met 4 people again in the second visit. These 4 people apparently were working under another manager. They must passed my resume internally to another team. Anyway, the interview format is the same as last time.
