    I worked at Adaptec full-time (More than 8 years)


    great culture, good work life balance, company cares about its employees strong position in the market place as a / the leader in their segment great name and always opens doors to get meetings solid products with very good reputations


    strategy confusion - systems? software? silicon? all? different strategy each quarter Could have been much bigger with some longer term strategic focus. activist investor didn't help any either.....

    Advice to Management

    should have been the FC leader and appliance leader.... Should have kept the silicon tie in with real silicon lead now is good.

    Software Development Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sunnyvale, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Adaptec (Sunnyvale, CA).


    Phone call tested the basic programming /C questions (Structs, constructs) Nothing much about the resume but depends on who takes the interview, if a Manager then will ask about the course work and resume related questions Onsite was less than a week later - Mostly questions relating to stated resume and basic programming concepts. Not a tough interview

    Interview Questions


    Not a lot of Negotiation as I was a fresh grad
