    Pros

    Good benefits. Paid well. Good working environment. Nice people. No politics. Good company to work for 1-3 years.

    Cons

    Although there is unlimited PTO, work-life balance is non-existent. Expect you to work long working hours in office, at home, or on vacation (plus even weekends). Unable to do work efficiently because there is no standard process (everything is a hectic mess) and company acts like a start-up even if they have been around for approximately almost 20 years. Burnout from the piled-on tasks, especially the tasks that has nothing to do with your job title and job description as well. No career path. Management gets away with everything. Horrible IT department that does not know how to do anything and are not resourceful.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8+ months. I interviewed at eSilicon.

    Interview

    Interviewed over a long(gggggg...) period of time. Got very frustrated over offer delay with vague promises. In a nutshell, even after the ultimate timeline discussion, entire hiring process went very cold. No response from recruiter, hiring manager and everyone in the interview process.

    Totally unprofessional experience. Very little respect for interviewer's timeline and management has way too much(hhhhhh....) time in their hands.

    Interview Questions

    • It was a management position and questions mainly revolved around competencies as well as past accomplishments best suited to their present/future growth needs.   Answer Question
