Average Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Cadence Design Systems (San Jose, CA) in Mar 2019

Interview

I interviewed with 4 different groups which was helpful for getting an overview of different roles in the company. Initially, I applied for one position, but several HR recruiters got back to me quickly, which was awesome compared to other companies that seem not to care. Mostly questions about C++ and lots of questions related to graph algorithms. There is a spectrum of groups from legacy products/code that are being optimized to new products. Some of the groups have harder interviews than others, but preparing for standard algo questions should get you there. Also, some groups have an emphasis on parallelism and distributed systems/scheduling, which would also be good to brush up on.

Interview Questions
  • What is the advantages of using an adjacency list versus adjacency matrix?

Technical Account Manager

Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?
