Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Synopsys (Sunnyvale, CA) in September 2015.

Interview

Brief discussion with the recruiter n the hone followed by hour long technical interview with the hiring manager on the phone. After this I was invited onsite for about a 5 hour technical interviews with five team members.

Interview Questions

  • The phone interview was "C" questions on printf, UNIX signalling mechanism, multithreading and process model. Onsite was more algorithms and implement you own functions and find the problem with pre-written "C" functions, write a function to convert little endian data to big endian and solve some generic puzzles. I was also asked scripting questions on Perl.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Synopsys (Mountain View, CA) in May 2012.

    Interview

    The whole process is really smooth and efficient. I got an offer 3 days after the interview.
    I got a phone interview first which takes 30 minutes or so. Then I was told to go Mountain view to have a onsite. During that onsite, I met all people in that group.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    not too much. Salary is pretty firm. But if they really want you, you definitely have a chance to play this game which is sort of dangerous because your offer may be withdrawn.

    Interview

    4 rounds on-site interview
    one is for C programming, one is for Unix operation, one is puzzle questions, the last is with HR.

    Interview Questions

    • I have no preparation about the puzzle questions, so meet some obstacle on it.
      Some puzzle question is like:
      There are 25 horses, each time you can race 5 of them, how many races are need to find out the fastest 3.
      There are N numbers, how many compares are needed to get the minimal and maximal.
