Envestnet Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Project Manager Interview (Negative Experience)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Envestnet.
Interview Details – Interview process consisted of a phone screen, and two in person interviews. The first interview was with the hiring manager, the second was with the head of HR. First interview was pretty straight forward. The second interview was more intense, but not terribly difficult.
Interview Question – Nothing terribly difficult Answer Question
Product Manager Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Envestnet.
Interview Details – Phone screening after the application was submitted took about 10 days. After the phone screening, in-person interview was scheduled. It took about 10 days. It was a typical phone interview to see how my previous experiences may be transferred to the position at Envestnet | Tamarac. In-person interview took about 3 hours.
Interview Question – Probably the most difficult question was 'the white board' question. The question was somewhat vague, I thought the question could have been more clear. Answer Question
Product Manager Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online - interviewed at Envestnet in December 2013.
Interview Details – HR conducted phone screen. Supplied timeline for feedback from hiring manager. Never received a call back or email including reply to my request for information and interview closure. Very unprofessional.
Interview Question – N/A - phone screen was very routine Answer Question
Team Lead/Software Architect Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Envestnet in October 2013.
Interview Details – Found role online and contacted the recruiter in charge of the hiring process. Had a response within a day from the recruiter, who set up a phone interview for two days after with the manager of the position.
Manager was very nice and personable. Asked a few high-level tech questions, asked a few "getting along with people" questions and then asked about my availability to come in for an in-person interview.
Schedules were consulted and in-person interview was set up for the following day. Got to interview with two developers who I believe would have been peers. The position was explained as a true Team Lead position that would be reviewing and allocating work performed by an India-based development team.
Got to meet with the manager again, he asked more "people experience" and HR questions, and things looked good.
I had been told by the recruiter of the maximum range of the position, and after discovering that the position did not include any sort of reimbursement for parking or light-rail commuting, I discussed this with the manager. I told him, based on that requirement, my minimum acceptable range would be just above the max as told to me by the recruiter. He said he understood my reasoning and that didn't seem to preclude the potential of an offer.
After a few days, the recruiter notified me that the manager couldn't justify the additional salary requirements and therefore couldn't offer me, even though he felt I was qualified. The salary maximum was low for the location and responsibility of the position, and I was willing to take a pay cut to move to a company that seemed to have nice coworkers and interesting work, but not as much as would have been required with the salary cap.
