    I worked at Teradyne

    Pros

    Interesting and challenging business problems to work through, especially in operations.

    Cons

    Do not value employees' career development, unless you are an engineer that wants to work on only one product for 20 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a leadership development program, or some other mechanism for younger employees to get cross functional experiences before they leave.

    Contractor/Software Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Teradyne.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by contract recruiter who works at the Teradyne site in North Reading. I had one interview with 2 managers and 2 technical people. The overall experience was very positive, but thorough. After a brief introductory interview with the recruiter, I jumped right into an interview where I was asked to code 4 algorithms while the interviewer watched over my shoulder. While this level of scrutiny was unnerving at first, he did his best to make me comfortable and do my best. I actually enjoyed getting a chance to show what I like to do and can do best, rather than just talk about it. The person asked a large number of short, basic questions about C# that showed the breadth, rtaher than depth of your knowledge. Again, he was friendly and relaxed in what is essentially a confrontational, diagnostic scenario. The last 2 interviews with managers where more general and philosophical in nature.
