I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ weeks – interviewed at FactSet (Norwalk, CT) in February 2014.
Had a brief phone interview that involved a discussion of OOP and writing code in C++. Was invited onsite, where there were a series of interviews, each one-on-one. One was a C++ code review. Another was about designing a game/simulator and addressing its challenges. The third focused on data structures and algorithms. The experience was mostly positive, and I heard a decision less than a week later, but I have yet to receive the promised travel reimbursement. I can understand a delay in this process, but no one from HR has replied to my inquiries about it. Very unprofessional.
- Nothing was extremely difficult, but I was mildly and happily surprised that there was a segment fully devoted to OOD. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at FactSet (London, England (UK)) in July 2013.
This was for a graduate position, and I still have to take the face-to-face interview, but so far they have been really communicative and have answered any question I had by email really quick. In the phone interview, which took exactly 60 minutes, they asked me basic questions about data structures and object oriented programming. In one of those they made me compare benefits and drawbacks of using arrays instead of linked lists. Another question revolved on the fact that data would be coming in real time and I had to used some sort of heap or ordered list to keep this data. I also had the typical question about motivations, why FactSet, and a bit about their competition.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at FactSet (Hyderābād (India)) in January 2011.
Got the interview through a referral, got a communication regarding the phone interview process and the initial interview is just to understand the candidate and explain the procedure, position to be offered, nature of work, brief introduction about the company, then there was a written test which was mainly concentrated on the required skills and then there was a personal interview before the offer was made. Then there was an orientation session being organized for the recruits.
