    Principal Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cambridge, England

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at CMR Surgical (Cambridge, England) in October 2020.

    Interview

    Very professional and clear concise questions. I had an interview panel of five. Each team member had 45 minutes with me. Peoples Team kicked off the interview and asked very relevant questions and explained in detail how the interview process would work and what the benefits were. The process was performed via teams, so having a remote interview was a first for me. My overall impression was that CMR has a host of smart, humble and genuine personnel. I've read other reviews and my interview was a good experience. Challenging questions and my thought process was allowed to take the stage. Overall nothing but good comments.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CMR Surgical (Cambridge, England) in August 2020.

    Interview

    My interview was all remote due to COVID-19. Initial 30 minute phone screen, then one week later a full day of "face to face" interviews (using zoom).

    The day consisted of 5-6 individual 1:1 interviews, one after another. Quite poorly timed as it began late afternoon and left me only 15 minutes for lunch with a 30 minute break at around 14:30. Ended at 17:00. Didn't hear anything for over a week then was given generic rejection when I asked.

    Most of the individual technical interviews were very easy and I essentially got everything right and in many cases taught the interviewers something. Then all of a sudden towards the end a non-trivial graph problem which I was expected to solve with no help. It wasn't pair programming, it was examination. I didn't finish the problem in time.

    I learnt absolutely nothing from this interview. No feedback. No indications to gaps in my knowledge/skills. A wasted day.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CMR Surgical.

    Interview

    I first had a phone interview and then moved to onsite assessment. There I had 4 interviews. Two technical coding test, one on software practices that focused almost exclusively on testing and a final HR interview.

    The hardest question was how would I cope if someone died during an operation due to a fault in the code that I had written.

    Interview Questions

    • In one interview I had to write a root finding function and compare different approaches (like bisection vs Newton-Raphson). The second coding test was on reviewing code and finding bugs. The final technical interview was on best practices for testing.   Answer Question
