    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mountain View, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Synopsys in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview had 3 rounds (2 phone interviews and an onsite interview). I talked to the Hiring Manager over the phone for an hour in the first round where he asked me about my background and my experience. He was very impressed with me and passed me on to the 2nd round. In the 2nd round I got a call from a CAE manager in the Taiwan branch and it lasted for about 40 min which was a technical interview. I got an email after a couple of weeks saying that I was not selected for the onsite interview.

    Senior CAE I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mountain View, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mountain View, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Synopsys in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Got a phone call from a hiring manager who asked me to come interview for this position. I told him that I am only a recent graduate, and might not be a fit for this senior role upon reading the position description. He still insisted for me to come in.

    I came in after 2 business days, and we didn't even talk for more than 20 minutes before he admitted that this position was a bit too "senior" for me (as I have alluded to him in our first conversation), and he told me at the spot that he cannot move me forward. Even though it was a waste of my time, but at least he was polite and courteous during the duration of the full interview.

    I would suggest to their hiring manager to get better assessment skills for screening , since it was obvious that the specific hiring manager I talked to had difficulty weighing my skills over the phone, and believed I was a fit for this senior role.

    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.

    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really want you, you definitely have a chance to play this game which is sort of dangerous because your offer may be withdrawn.

    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.
