    I have been working at Photronics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people I support are easy going and great to work with. Great benefits package. Very flexible with hours. Not alot of after hours work.

    Cons

    Lack of raises and bonuses. Not a lot of new technology exposure.

    Advice to Management

    More informal morale building events. I would like to see something other than the holidays. Bringing the team together for fun things outside the office.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Photronics (Brookfield, CT) in March 2009.

    Interview

    My resume was found by one of their recruiters. They called me up and set up an interview at their HQ. I first met with HR, then interviewed with a four person panel. Spent about an hour or so answering standard behavioral questions (name a conflict you had at work and ho did you resolve it, what do you do when faced with multiple tasks that are all labeled "high priority", how do you go about affecting change, etc). After that, there was a short programming test. I was given a laptop and about an hour to complete the test. Simple stuff, just enough to prove that you could do what they wanted.
