    Pros

    Working with highly talent people, a wonderful place to learn and improve your CAD/CAGD knowledge/skills. Good benefits. Very stable company.

    Cons

    Compensation is not good enough. It's not easy to move out of CAD industry. Turn over rate is very low.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at SolidWorks.

    Interview Details

    Two phone screens (one standard with questions such as "why do you want to leave your current job" and almost no technical questions, and one very technical, with a series of exercises to finish in a limited time). Then a day of on-site interviews with the prospective manager and other senior team members. The on-site interviews were all one-on-one and technical, mostly software related, with some geometry-related maths questions / brain-teasers. Be prepared for a long day.

    Interview Questions
    • Know your "basics" well: binary search trees, other classic data structures and algorithms - par for the course in software companies. Also know C++ well. There are extra geometry questions: given a point and a polygon in a plane, devise an algorithm to check if the point is inside the polygon.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No real room for negotiation in my experience.
