I worked at Edaptive ComputingPros
Good place to get your foot in the door at the entry level. You'll probably like your co-workers and it's a good place to make friends.Cons
- This place gets cheap labor by preying on inexperienced engineers, supplies rock bottom salaries in general, and is solely focused on return on investments. This might work in the short run, but with high turnover and bad blood, new comers are forced to re-learn previously built systems without training or transition from the originators which has resulted in a culmination of stove-piped solutions with no real technical core.
- The senior management has a servant/master mentality and if you are unfortunate to work under them you will be expected to provide a limitless amount of work and effort with very little incentives. For example, you will be told to write full 25 page proposals that aren't in your areas of expertise, are provided a mere 4 hours to perform research and are given a maximum of 16 hours to complete them. if you can't finish in this amount of time (it is highly unlikely that you would be able to), you are expected to do it on "your own time" and to respectfully decline is not a valid option.
- if you plan on leaving the company be sure to use all of your vacation time beforehand unless you are prepared to fight a court battle to get compensated for it.
- We were encouraged through email to write reviews saying how wonderful of a place to work it is. Half of the positive reviews on here seem fabricated -- many of them even have the EXACT same title.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Look before you leap. Work on building a solid technical foundation and gathering the required resources before shooting to the stars. Think about getting an HR department if you continue to aspire for rapid growth. Buy your own coffee to give to customers during meetings instead of pirating it from the employee-run coffee group.Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookDisapproves of CEO
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Edaptive Computing in March 2014.Interview Details
Applied online; received phone call within a day regarding a phone interview. The first interview was fine - was typical interview questions. At the end, I was told that I would receive another call within a few days for a more thorough, technical interview without being able to schedule or plan when this interview was in advance. Received a call at 7:30AM the following day for the technical interview, the majority of which were syntactic in nature. Despite being greatly displeased at the time chosen by ECI to follow up with me, after the second interview, I received a job offer - $15,000 less than what I said was a reasonable salary on the online application and during the first interview.Interview Questions
Reasons for Declining
- Plenty of syntax based questions regarding Verilog and VHDL over the phone, so being able to mentally code or write it down fast enough is essentially the only way to get through to the next stage. Answer Question
