Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Synopsys (Austin, TX) in May 2016.

Interview

I was referred for this position by another employee there. The interview was not with the R&D team, so questions were mostly behavioral and about my background. The in-person portion consisted of meeting with 4 engineers in the team to talk about my experience and see how I would handle certain problems or issues.

At the end of the day, the manager set up a more technical WebEX interview with an engineer that was not in the office that day. This interview consisted mainly of showing my code samples and what those projects were like.

    Phone interview first, then onsite; They asked me about my background and the projects which I did.The job interview process can be lengthy. Being interviewed once and getting a job offer is typically a thing of the past. Today, many companies have an involved interview process starting with screening interviews, followed by in-person interviews, second interviews and even third interviews.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Synopsys (San Jose, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    It's a phone interview called by manager directly. There is no technology-related question. She focused on describing the work of this position her group. The reason why she do not care about technology is that she need a software engineer for supporting their document writing. She said the job is boring and has huge work load. She wants a guy that can do long time but not just half year...

    Interview

    It was a 1 Hour long interview, mostly related to C++ as that was what the job involved. The person taking the interview was pretty cool but as this was my first ever interview, I was pretty nervous. Messed up bad because of that.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Synopsys (Sunnyvale, CA) in July 2011.

    Interview

    Interviewed in person with about 3 people. One of them was a manager, and 2 engineers. Interview with the engineers went well, but the manager, who also asked me to write programs, didn't quite seem to understand the code. He asked about writing a program to find out the endianess of a machine. When he wasn't sure about the function, he asked "how else can you find out". I said the endianess is also defined in one of the system header files. He then asked "which one?", to which I replied "i don't the exact one, but perhaps machine.h or something like that. A find/grep would take a minute or so." He didn't seem to like the answer, or perhaps wasn't sure himself. In any case, I felt he tried to continue to ask questions just to come to one that I wouldn't be able to answer. He was truly a bad interviewer. The other engineers who were more technical didn't appear to be this way.
