    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at A10 Networks (San Jose, CA) in April 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process started with a recruiter screening followed by a 45 minute phone screen by the hiring manager. After that, I was invited on-site for the total of nine in-person interviews over two rounds (5 + 4). During the on-site rounds, I met with the hiring manager, two technical marketing engineers, two marketing managers and four senior level executives in marketing, product management and engineering functions. I found everyone to be very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. They clearly seemed to be doing a thorough vetting of candidates from both technical and cultural fit perspectives given the amount of time they invested in the interviewing process. The contents of the discussions were pretty solid and stimulating. I was also happy with other logistical aspects such as scheduling, turnaround time and feedback sharing etc. They respected my schedule and expedited the process upon requesting. Overall I had quite satisfying an interview experience with A10.

    Product Marketing Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at A10 Networks (San Jose, CA) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Short call with a recruiter. On-site with several people, many of whom appeared to be quite capable. In the end, I declined the offer that was extended to me because the position I applied for was vastly different from the position I was interviewed for.

    Product Marketing is actually a complicated role, requiring several skill sets, including marketing. At A10, it appears as though the PMM role requires one to be a corporate Sales Engineer with a passion for creating data sheets. I learned that the leader of the Product Marketing team had never worked in Marketing before heading up this critical function. I suspect this is why there is such a focus on technical aptitude rather than actual marketing.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at A10 Networks (San Jose, CA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    The interview took 2 weeks, after applying through the website I received a call from recruiter and 1 week later she scheduled a phone screening from one of the managers with some simple questions about load balancing and network concepts, I got the F2F interview in the HQ with 3 engineers and 2 managers, I was asked different type of TCP features and general queries like describing a packet walk from scratch, also during managerial interviews I tried to behave myself and responded to questions like where do you see yourself within next 5 years, in a nutshell since Technical engineering assumes to be an entry level in network engineering field I've not had very difficult interviews with very strange questions.
