    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Synopsys (Mountain View, CA) in May 2012.

    Interview

    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

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really want you, you definitely have a chance to play this game which is sort of dangerous because your offer may be withdrawn.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Synopsys (Shanghai, Shanghai (China)) in May 2009.

    Interview

    4 rounds on-site interview one is for C programming, one is for Unix operation, one is puzzle questions, the last is with HR.

    Interview Questions

    • I have no preparation about the puzzle questions, so meet some obstacle on it. Some puzzle question is like: There are 25 horses, each time you can race 5 of them, how many races are need to find out the fastest 3. There are N numbers, how many compares are needed to get the minimal and maximal.   Answer Question
