    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at SEI Investments.

    Interview Details

    A recruiter reached out to me and asked if I was interested in the position. I went through a phone interview and then an office interview with 3 supervisors. The recruiter asked what my salary expectations were before the office interview and then told me what the salary would be and asked if it was okay. The salary is way below the industry average, but the company culture is innovative and awesome.
