    Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Synopsys (Sunnyvale, CA).

    Interview

    Contacted by recruiter who thought their was a skills match on my profile.

    The recruiter quickly moved for me to speak to hiring manager. After the initial phone call, I was invited on site for an interview.

    During the interview, I asked interviewer(s) how much would be working together and what tasks the team would be doing?

    The common answer I got was I don't know, you'll have to ask the hiring manager.

    When I met the hiring manager, they gave vague outline of what could happen, but no decisions had been made and probably won't be for awhile.

    After the interview I did not hear anything for two weeks from the recruiter and followed up. I received a response that the recruiter would follow up with the hiring manager and let me know as soon as possible.

    After another two weeks I requested another update in which I was told I would not get the job.

    I'm disappointed I was rushed to get in there and then all of a sudden the job interview went cold and no response.

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Synopsys.

    Interview

    The process was straight forward, well organized, and professional. After an initial phone call they invited me on site and I met with 5 members of the team.

    I spoke with each person about 30-45 minutes and it felt more like a conversation than question after question.

    Sales Development Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Synopsys (Boston, MA) in November 2019.

    Interview

    Interview process began with two phone screens which resulted in being very positive. I didn’t even think that I gave my best interview after the 2nd phone screen, but lone behold the next day they wanted me to fly out to Boston to interview in house (flight paid for by them and everything). I was very excited and eager by this. It made me feel good about myself knowing that they wanted me to come in and extended a helping hand as such. I was asked to prepare a 20 minute presentation on something I was passionate about. This was another neat twist as I was able to show them what my passions were/how passionate I was for them. I came in and had the interview. Some of the interviewees seemed disinterested in speaking with me from the start, which is a confidence killer for anyone in an interview. I then gave my presentation which again they seemed to rather be buried waist deep in paperwork than hear me out for a little bit of their day. Once over as I unplugged my laptop 3/4 interviewees rushed out without even sending me off. I know that I have to go out of my way to thank them, but I should not be chasing them out of the door for this. It’s one thing if you think that a candidate is not a right fit, it’s another thing to show a blatant lack of respect as such after having someone spend 12 hours of their day traveling. Regardless, I felt that I gave a good interview and felt good about my performance. I reached out to one of the interviewees via LinkedIn to thank them and he fortunately responded. Unfortunately, by the time he responded, which was about 16 hours after the interview, I had already been told they moved on. My point is, why fly someone out and waste a colossal amount of time, money, and resources, only to put on this circus act. I could have ran around like a chicken with his head cut off in the interview and it would have taken them more time to deny me.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Synopsys (San Francisco, CA) in October 2019.

    Interview

    After 3 phone interviews they brought me in for a full day onsite interview with several people. Nothing unexpected, but kind of repetitive as most interviewers just asked the same basic questions. After taking a whole day off work for this, they didn't even have the courtesy to follow up afterwards which is about as disrespectful as you can get.
