    I worked at Ceradyne full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent job security and OK compensation and job responsibilities which is more than can be said for most companies.

    Cons

    Some aspects of the job were just OK, but most were good. Lagged behind in technology at times. Sometimes extremely long hours on short notice.

    Advice to Management

    Sold at the right time to the correct people.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Ceradyne (Costa Mesa, CA) in November 2011.

    Interview

    It was smooth and quick. The interview process went well. The first interview was a phone screening, followed by personal interview, as well as group interview. The questions were specific to experience. I was able to gain information about the company as they gained information about me.
