    Principal Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bengaluru (India)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Broadcom (Bengaluru (India)).

    Interview

    It was not one of the better interviews I have faced. Interviewers believed more in the process of "elimination" rather than "choosing" the candidate. The attitude of the interviewers was unnecessarily aggressive and it seemed like they were trying to show off their superiority and put down the candidate who had come for interview. The hiring manager's questions were very vague and unclear.
    The product line is definitely very good and work does seem to be interesting but have my apprehensions about the team.
