    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Framingham, MA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at CA Technologies (Framingham, MA) in October 2010.

    Interview

    Phone chat with the recruiter, followed by a mandatory on-line assessment (personality + iq). Then phone with the hiring manager, followed by 2 sets of group interviews 4-5 hours each. Quick decision making, no bull before, during, or after the interviews. Highly technical people, friendly, but thorough in probing your skills. Not a single idiotic question (sort of "...tell us why are you the best candidate?" - none of that), technical, no-nonsense. Very positive overall impression from the interviews.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    25% what I read on this board, 30% feedback from former employees I know, 25% weakish benefits, sucky work environment and commute (remoting discouraged, yak...) The rest is - the job didn't sound too appealing to me either.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at CA Technologies (Framingham, MA) in August 2010.

    In general and in a word: lengthy, but then again quite meticulous as far goes both interviewing wide and deep in the hiring organization and among the constituents.

    Interview Questions

    • In the "unexpected category"; "define marketing, please?"   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Absolutely room to negotiate, and also relying on industry data and best practices.

    Advisor, Corporate Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Framingham, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at CA Technologies (Framingham, MA) in June 2010.

    Interview

    Interview process was straight forward: phone screening with HR and hiring manager. Then in person interviews on one day with about 5 team members. The process took a long time to complete. Some paperwork was lost and the background check took a long time. They did not drug test, like EMC did.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    They offered to cover the value of the unvested stock that I had to give up to leave EMC and come to CA as a one time signing bonus. They also added 10% to what I was making at EMC and added another 10% for the raise that I was expecting to get had I stayed at EMC.

    Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Framingham, MA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at CA Technologies (Framingham, MA) in January 2008.

    Interview

    1 phone screening interview to establish if you have worked in a team environment and basic questions from your skills mentioned in your resume etc.

    Next was a 5 hour on site interview with 5 team members, each member taking about 1 hour. Due to the nature of the products that CA builds, the focus was more on abstract computer science concepts as opposed to a particular language like Java. Although they asked programming language specific questions but what they were looking for was solid fundamentals on computer science concepts. Questions like deadlock resolution techniques and algorithms, concurrency issues, performance issues, data structures etc. The focus was heavily on technical and analytical skills and little on soft skills.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about some specific deadlock resolution/prevention algorithms which are very efficient and asked to apply it to a situation the interviewer explained.   Answer Question
