    Former Employee - Sales Manager in Milpitas, CA

    I worked at Adaptec full-time (more than 8 years)


    great culture, good work life balance, company cares about its employees
    strong position in the market place as a / the leader in their segment
    great name and always opens doors to get meetings
    solid products with very good reputations


    strategy confusion - systems? software? silicon? all? different strategy each quarter
    Could have been much bigger with some longer term strategic focus.
    activist investor didn't help any either.....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    should have been the FC leader and appliance leader.... Should have kept the silicon
    tie in with real silicon lead now is good.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Adaptec.

    Interview Details

    Phone call tested the basic programming /C questions (Structs, constructs) Nothing much about the resume but depends on who takes the interview, if a Manager then will ask about the course work and resume related questions
    Onsite was less than a week later - Mostly questions relating to stated resume and basic programming concepts. Not a tough interview
