    Systems Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at FactSet (Norwalk, CT) in November 2009.

    Interview

    I interviewed for a position at FactSet while completing my degree. HR reached out promptly following a college career fair, which made the process move quickly. FactSet enjoys creating an excitement and that leads to a positive perception of the corporate culture. Fresh, agile in hiring process, not too bureaucratic, and not extra phone screens. Went through one 1:1 phone screen interview, followed 10 days later by a full-day onsite interview speaking with systems engineers and engineering managers. Four 45-minute technical interviews with pairs of interviewers through the day, plus intro, interview with manager, interview with asst director, discussion with HR, and lunch. Long day. I received an offer a few days later and was given 2 weeks to reply.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at FactSet (Boston, MA) in November 2012.

    Interview

    Was initially contacted for a basic phone interview after a Factset client spoke to them on myself. Phone interview consisted of a basic reuse walkthrough and information about the company/position. Was then asked to attend a final interview at their Boston office. Interviewed alongside three other candidates. Rotated among 4 interviewers, roughly 30 minutes each. Questions ranged from basic to curveballs and brainteasers. Afterwards they put all of the candidates together in a board room and has us solve a group brainteaser on a whiteboard. Treated to lunch with current consultants afterwards. Was contacted via email two weeks later informing me that I was not offered a position.
