    I have been working at Rincon Research Corporation full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Solid, stable company with a good back log of work. Good life/work balance. Some interesting projects, typically short duration (~1 year). Lots of very intelligent people with a variety of skills to work with and learn from.

    Cons

    Sometimes you get stuck on a project because you are a warm body, even though you have no particular interest or skill. Low raises, the company is constantly harping on lowering overhead.

    DSP Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Rincon Research Corporation.

    Interview Details

    Received e-mail request for a phone interview. Phone screen was completely technical. Very in-depth questions about classical DSP. Seemed more like a lecture than an interview, which was off putting and somewhat hostile. All the questions were very technical but seemed canned. Asked open-ended technical questions like how you would design a specific application to test your knowledge of algorithm trade-offs and appropriate usage. All in all, it seemed way harder than it should for an entry level position. The questioned seemed more for if this was a mid-level career interview where you should have had some serious amount of experience coming into it, not fresh out of school. From other reviews, it seems Rincon wanting to fill an entry level position with someone with way more experience and knowledge than your typical college grad but pay an entry level salary might be common (which seems unrealistic). The engineer I spoke to seemed very knowledgeable, but short (temper-wise).
