    Senior Marketing Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Brocade (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    Pretty standard types of questions. The hiring managers were very specific. But no real grilling. It was professional but informal, and it was closer to an informational interview rather than a full-blown job interview.

    Senior Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Brocade (New York, NY).

    Interview

    This interview went really well yet they seemed a little unprepared for my application and questions. I asked them where they saw the company 5 years from now and they said that since Broadcom is buying Brocade and splitting the company up, they are unsure. There is a lot of uncertainty in this company right now.

    Senior Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Brocade.

    Interview

    fairly easy,
    but they flipped on the title last minute and were low balling.

    didn't honor job description, poor management and org and hiring experience.

    Advice: Ethically speaking, honor what you say in the beginning.

    University Relations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Brocade (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    There was none - no one ever followed-up with me. The only feedback I got was the confirmation email I received when applying, which I did twice, because I thought maybe their ATS wasn't working correctly. I applied once in January, then they closed the role. The role reopened in February, so I applied again, and both times did not receive ANY feedback or rejection.

    This wouldn't bother me so much if I wasn't a perfect match for the role, which should at least merit a phone screening by a recruiter.

    After a three weeks I sent a message to a recruiter on LinkedIn and she promised she would like the recruiter assigned to the role know, and promised me follow-up, but I never head anything. I also reached out to the recruiter connected to the role on LinkedIn but she never replied.

    Intern Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Brocade in February 2016.

    Interview

    Applied to an internship around the February and got called for an interview around March. The interviewer was nice and the company is great, but I did not like how long they took to respond to follow ups. I never got an automated rejection email (I would prefer to know I did not go on with the process rather than being on a wait) and it's already being more than 2 weeks. I understand that sometimes the process may take longer because of logistical issues, however, this has happened to me more than once with this company-- I applied before, but decided to give it another chance. It can really deter potential candidates from applying again from the lack of courtesy and timeliness/organization. I doubt I will apply again because of this.
