    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Synopsys (Sunnyvale, CA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I gave a presentation before the interview, so the rest of the interview is mostly concerned with that. Also they try to relate the problems they try to solve with my research, quite comfortable conversation and nice people. Very basic programming question and everyone seems to be concerned with how many lines of code you have wrote.

    Interview Questions

    • Not a particular difficult one. Some of the problems they don't even know the answer, just show your logic of thinking, not necessarily the right result.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    not much to negotiate for a fresh graduate
