I worked at Spirent Communications full-time (More than 5 years)
Always the latest, cutting edge technologies. Very good work\life balance. Benefits packages are excellent.
Industry is changing and the company is having to remake itself as a software and security firm. Don't know if this is sustainable long term.
Advice to Management
Invest in your people and try to hold on to top talent. On that same note, look at your people for signs of being "Retired in Place". I saw some of this while I was there, and it's not beneficial to the company.
I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Spirent Communications (San Jose, CA) in June 2016.
Couple of easy phone interviews followed by an Onsite interview. Onsite Interview took 3+ hours. Started with Presentation followed by exercises on lab eqipment, Excel & MATLAB. Technical Interview by Hiring manager, most of the questions are simple and related to GPS & Wireless technoligies.
