    Associate Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Andover, MA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Vicor Corp. (Andover, MA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Pretty standard HR call and salary expectations. Followed by a skype call with the manager and director of engineering asking about your background and resume and how that fits with the position. Then followed by an in-person. Judging from the Glassdoor reviews, the pay is below average anyways and a software department that wants to pay for what they get isn't the place for me. I would steer clear of this place it's not a place to grow your career but certainly a start for people beginning them.

    Reasons for Declining

    Tt was very off-putting to hear that the basis of my interview consisted of try to talk me down of my salary expectations because the company was in the suburbs and my expectations are for "city salary". Management also did not seem to have the strong skillset and sharpness that I look for in a team.

    Firmware Engineer Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Vicor Corp. in January 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online. Got email for phone interview. Answered the call at work. Asked me a few technical questions. But we could not agree on basic concepts. I work on firmware/embedded software that uses Embedded operating system and very complicated. But Vicor uses much simpler micro-controller and no OS. So we could not agree what firmware really means. Also some hardware questions. I agree with another reviewer, the interviewer is a little arrogant and always thinks he is the correct, refuses to
    listen. I can image it is going to be hard to work with him. Candidates come from different backgrounds
    and it is a good idea for a manager to listen and understand their opinions. A few days later got email of not good fit, which I agree.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Vicor Corp. in October 2014.

    Interview

    Easy interview, talked about experiences that you have on your resume. And then they gave a tour of the lab. Afterwards they gave a tour of the facility. The manager is very nice and very intelligent. Many of the instruments they use in the lab can be very helpful for future skills. They gave introductions to the team you will be working with, it provided comfort and an idea of what the culture was like around the work place.
