    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mountain View, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Synopsys in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    The whole process is really smooth and efficient. I got an offer 3 days after the interview.
    I got a phone interview first which takes 30 minutes or so. Then I was told to go Mountain view to have a onsite. During that onsite, I met all people in that group.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    not too much. Salary is pretty firm. But if they really want you, you definitely have a chance to play this game which is sort of dangerous because your offer may be withdrawn.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hillsboro, OR
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hillsboro, OR
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Synopsys in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    The phone screen was light weight, just background check and so on. The onsite interview was a little bit more serious. The first talk was with 2 heads (one is the boss of the group and one is his boss). Both were pretty friendly without deep technical questions. Then there were 4 2-1 or 3-1 interviews, each 1 hour. Most were technical and some are tough. Covering algorithms / C++ knowledges / behavioral questions. I answered 80% of them.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Synopsys in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was pretty relaxed. I was called up by the manager of the team that was interested in hiring me. There were two interviews, one by the manager and another by another senior member of the staff.
    They were basically interested in the work that I was doing under my professor. The interviews went well and I was given a call by the HR would told me that they were going to extend me the internship offer.
