    I have been working at Panasas full-time (more than 3 years)


    The culture is the best - people really care about each other. Very smart engineers who are willing to help those that are not technical. Close team environment and lots of teamwork. The Exec's and upper management are available and open to your suggestions and ideas. They are also honest and open to questions. Free exercise classes at lunch. Flexible on working schedule.


    Panasas has a real opportunity ahead but execution of a large project is challenging and definitely not an easy ride. There have been some bumps in our road so you should have some thick skin to work here. Always worth sticking it out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on working hard.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Panasas in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, contacted by a recruiter, told that I didn't have enough experience but smart enough to get a phd so they'd give me a chance, an on-site interview was then set up in pittsburgh. The interview was with the hiring manager only, lasted for one hour.

    Interview Questions
    • The question was very vague. Given an app that does a lot of read how do you improve the performance? I was like, uhmmm there are many ways, so I focused on the blades, turned out that he wanted someone who can break down complex problems, sigh ..........   Answer Question
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview
