    I have been working at Cirrus Logic full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits like parties, happy hour, and fitness classes. Company is growing and building a campus downtown. Work is challenging and fun. Coworkers form a good team.

    Cons

    Consumer electronics ICs is a tough business: demanding customers, lots of competitors. Austin is expensive for Texas and presents a commuting challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Keep winning and looking for growth. Grow catalog customers if it makes sense.

    Design Verification Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Cirrus Logic (Austin, TX) in July 2017.

    Interview

    This is not a place that experienced/senior engineers should look to. They seem to have more work than people to do it and are looking to scale through hiring more bodies than changing how they actually do verification reuse. They rely mostly on external recruiters not only for finding candidates but also as agents throughout the whole process so you're mostly dealing with a distant third party headhunter who knows little about the role, industry, or expectations.

    The pre-interview process involved a prescreen call and testbench coding exercise that a candidate does on their own time followed by a technical review call. The onsite interview was not effectively geared towards a Senior person and also involved an on-demand coding activity which was vague and wouldn't reveal much about DV expertise.
    Despite initial positive feedback and follow-up calls, the company took over 2 weeks to respond (via their 3rd party head hunter) with disappointing news and absolutely no other feedback.
