    Pros

    GREAT employees, brilliant people, product that is highly accepted in the market. Toshiba has allowed for more resources for R&D without much other interference!

    Cons

    Certain management should be held more accountable. Several managers use the company for their benefit and do not make decisions in the best interest of the company. Some political wrangling can detract from an exciting company and product. Single line of business without much new innovation. STILL have trouble delivering bug free software on time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend time holding people accountable for failures especially managers. Manage R&D well. Be sure product delivered on time and without major bugs.

    Interview Details

    They're very heavy on interviews and weeding. First I took a skills test (I did well), then a "fit" phone interview from an HR person, then another phone interview from the hiring manager, who asked me a lot of technical questions, and one of those puzzle questions that software people sometimes like. After that, an in person interview. I'm not any good at those on the spot questions that want you to regurgitate textbook definitions of things, so I guess I didn't pass.

    Frankly I didn't feel I was a fit for a place that seems to care heavily about that kind of algorithmic thinking, but it'd be nice to have known that's really what they're looking for. The job description that came with it was essentially non-existent, the HR person could't really describe what they were doing either, and I only found out what the job was at the technical interview. Largely a waste of my, and their time.

    Places like this that want "heads down" developers need to start realizing that's what they're looking for, and start using language to describe the person they're looking for, not just a set of skills.

    Interview Questions
