    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Minerva Networks (Alviso, CA).

    Interview

    Was recruited by one of their execs. Interviewed w/four people in 3 days including CEO. Interviews were always in a meeting room in the lobby so never saw the actual office area. Looked deserted. They asked me from the beginning what I was currently making and what I expected to make in this role. I let them know more than once and they said it wasn't an issue. So they made me the offer and it was well below what I was making and even more so below what I was asking and the benefits were horrible, the worst I've ever come across during all my years in Silicon Valley. Seems like a company in trouble based on how cheap they are. Needless to say I turned down the offer, and they still tried to get me to take it.
