I have been working at TeamF1 full-time (More than 3 years)
Small R&D team after becoming D-LINK, working on latest technologies like SDN, cloud and other wifi solutions. Work is great under a young and dynamic mentor with lot of fun.
Mentor too perfect at times and very very demanding. Long hours at times uncontrollable. Very little time to learn.
Advice to Management
Can improve employee recognition. employees should be recognised for creative solutions. Management can help improving labs and equipment.
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at TeamF1 (Hyderābād (India)) in August 2015.
I received a direct call from HR recruiter in Aug-2015 for C/C++ dev profile, got interview scheduled 2days later. I clearly mentioned my intention to HR about why I was leaving previous company. Had done a thorough study about company's profile, Its a Indian OEM company acquired by D-Link in Feb-2014 that has most employees from reputed institutions like IITs, NITs etc including managers. 1st round was a 20min managerial round who screened my complete resume, as I was from embedded (L2/L3 networking) background and company needed the same, Mostly questions asked were all domain related, received positive feedback from him. Same day 2nd round was a 1hr technical round taken by development lead, received a positive feedback from him as well. Final round was with HR manager who gave brief description about company, Was friendly and tested me in possible ways for lead role/pressure handling capability/decision making and as I impressed him too, was very much interested about me joining the company, I was frank on my answers. He also mentioned about commitment with company, which I agreed but only upon agreeing to pay me well. Said that the HR recruiter would contact me for competition of joining formalities within a week's times. I did not receive any update even until 3weeks after continuous follow-ups. So I had to forget and join another company for the same offer, reason being mentioned was salary constraint. Overall it was a good experience but with a sad climax. I request management to process CVs only after getting confirmation from interviewee on salary part, otherwise its of no use from both sides. I took it as a good experience and moved forward.
