    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Unigen full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have been here for @ 5 years and have seen many companies come and go in that time. unigen has a very strong reputation of always needing to hire great candidates as well as do what they can to keep the ones they have. They are very strong in the technology field and are always doing what they can to improve themselves while striving to make the environment a better place to come to daily.

    Cons

    If you are looking for a place to start with, go public with the company, and then retire,,,this might not be the place for you. We work with many high level companies and by staying private and nimble , it allows us the flexibility to move quickly, outpace the competition as well as take on deals that otherwise might be lost or take too long to get implemented in a mass corporate environment.

    Advice to Management

    As with any company, There is always room for improvement when it comes to personal development of the employees as well as team building, Appreciation and Motivation....

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Unigen (Fremont, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    First is the phone screening from the Staffing Program Specialist. Afterwards, there was a face to face interview with the Product Manager, SVP of Operations, Sr. Director of Product Marketing, and System Qualification Test Engineering Manager. The face to face interview took about 4 hours. Lastly, there was a final interview with the FAE hiring manager.

    Interview Questions

    • It's common where Unigen and other SSD vendors will use the same controller model (e.g. Marvell 88SS9187) for their SSD product (e.g. 2.5" SATA III SSD). Also, Unigen and other SSD vendors will release new FW (same controller model) at different intervals. There are instances where other SSD vendors will release a new FW version before Unigen. Scenario: A customer is aware of the new FW version (from a different vendor but same SSD controller model) and asks if they can apply the new FW on the Unigen SSD. In addition, the customer has read the release notes and there is a FW fix, which the customer needs. How would reply to the customer? Is this recommended?   Answer Question
