    Pros

    Great people that I really enjoyed working with. Everyone was kind and considerate to one another.

    Cons

    Limited software vision. As a hardware company, more emphasis should be placed upon the software and the tool used. This makes a huge impact upon on the experience.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more software visionaries.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Zoran (Sunnyvale, CA) in June 2010.

    Interview

    Hiring manager waffled a lot in setting up interview and was late for my appointment. I spent a while in the lobby. Interview was just with the hiring manager and consisted of a lot of questions regarding my background, Perl scripts, make files, C code. He asked a few technical questions, which were more like puzzles than technical questions.
