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really want you, you definitely have a chance to play this game which is sort of dangerous because your offer may be withdrawn.

      There are N numbers, how many compares are needed to get the minimal and maximal.
