    Current Employee - Engineering Manager in Costa Mesa, CA

    I have been working at NDS Americas full-time for more than 10 years


    Global team. Cutting edge technology. At the cusp of accelerating the pay tv related technologies. Result focused and merit based reward systems in place.


    Not much to say here. The teaming happens at a global scale rather than local. Which is good for some and bad for others.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Costa Mesa, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Costa Mesa, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at NDS Americas in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    Company requires idiots to fillup the joint; every once in a while, a skilled engineer accidently joins the company. Company requires PERFECT TRW and credit scores. They pretend that the company has important secrets to protect. Do not try to join unless you want to be screened by CREDIT SCORE and SECURITY COMPANY and 3 or 4 letters of REFERENCE and calls to past employers. 30+day process NDS painful.

    Negotiation Details
    So long as you were willing to take recurring from your bosses, they were willing to pay. Start as high as you think they can bear, because you will get HARD and OFTEN, should you take job offer. Consider high 110's. High 120's are for mgt. Architechs might ask mid 140's. Few senior mgr make $300K+, but rare.
