    Development Engineer II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newport Beach, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MSC Software (Newport Beach, CA).


    Phone interview with 2 managers, and 1 on-site interview. Phone interview with one manager was pleasant (more like a discussion), but the other manager was terrible - the manager speaks unprofessionally and in condescending manner, arguing over trivial matters, and basically wants you to agree with him. On-site interview was with a bit better, but the phone interview gave me a very bad impression of the company, which determined my final decision to reject the offer because I felt like I will never be able to work with such a terrible manager. Also, didn't think the salary offered after negotiation is that great, considering that Irvine/Newport Beach is such an expensive area to live in.
