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

    Pros

    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

    Cons

    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

    Application

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

    Interview

    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

    Negotiation

    Not a lot of Negotiation as I was a fresh grad
