    I have been working at EskoArtwork full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the greatest minds in the field of packaging.

    Cons

    Soul was crushed when purchase by holding company Danaher and it's back office politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go independent again, much better stand alone company.

    Senior Software Engineer (C++) Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bangalore (India)
    Anonymous Employee in Bangalore (India)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at EskoArtwork in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    There were 4 rounds in the process - written test on c++, a coding test for 4 hours, then an interview (technical) and finally a HR interview. It started off with a written round having 30-35 objective type questions on C++. After clearing this, there is a coding test in c++ for 4 hours. There was a C++ problem which you have to design and write the solution, execute it and demonstrate the output with a given input file, on their machine. The solution was quite big and did take some time to write. I was not too impressed with this method. They claim that this test allows them to check the candidate's skill level in C++, but in reality the problem's solution is really simple and more emphasis is on the reading and writing with files using c++ file stream APIs. Clearly anyone who has prior knowledge of C++ file stream handling will be able to quickly solve this problem. Even if someone has good problem solving abilities but is unfamiliar with file handling APIs, they will get stuck if they are not familiar with the C++ file streams. This test doesn't necessarily test a candidate's strength in problem solving or algorithms or data structures. If you know c++ file handling calls, you will be able to quickly finish this task. Otherwise you are considered "unfit" for their job and will be rejected without doing even a technical interview.

    I hope they realize that coding skills can't be judged just on the basis of knowing some particular APIs like reading/writing from files. Usage of file handling APIs or some other concept is just a matter of a few days of practice, and doesn't indicate any coding or problem solving skills.
