    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Menlo Park, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Menlo Park, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at PGP in December 2008.

    Interview Details

    1:1 interviewers were not too positive about the company, work culture, seemed aloof.
    Recruiter was scatter brained and did not seem to add any value.

    Recommendation to other candidates is to get clarity on the hiring process, steps, progress and feedback.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Palo Alto, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Palo Alto, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at PGP in September 2008.

    Interview Details

    Bascially your typical interview process. Phone screen, then was brought in for a panel interview (gauntlet-style), over 2 days. Was asked several technical questions about programming, C++, server-side work etc.

    They had given me an offer, and I accepted, and signed in Oct. At the time, I was on H1-B visa, and the Company was ok sponsoring me for that. However, my green card process was active too, and a funny thing happened: in November, INS gave me my EAD. Not quite a green card, but a clear sign that I was close to getting the GC.

    So I had to tell PGP of this new development, and see if they were ok sponsoring me for the GC too.

    Reasons for Declining

    In the end, the hiring mgr gave me a choice: accept the offer, but drop the current GC (which meant it woulda been another year before I can even apply for the GC AGAIN!). Or, not accept the offer. So, I told him your choice is no choice, and I have to decline the offer after all.

    Just goes to show, that one can still lose out, even after signing an offer sheet.
