I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Fidelity Investments.
Interview Details – Long! Over two months from initial phone screen to end of negotiations. It was very well organized so there were no surprises with each phase, but the wait time towards the end rounds was long.
Interview Question – No unexpected questions, but there was an hour-long test to show day-to-day ability to solve relevant business problems. Answer Question
Negotiation Details –
I was able to negotiate the title as it was flexible based on experience. Although I didn't ask for it, the higher title naturally brought a bump in salary as well as bonus potential which I assumed would happen (and therefore didn't ask for, so long as the title was given). I felt they really weighed my case and I appreciated the process (though it took about two weeks).
I was mostly annoyed at the lack of transparency around the title / role and how they were going to scale the offer based on your background, until the offer actually came in (and surprised me at the lower end).
I would have beendisappointed if I didn't get the offer, so can only imagine the other final candidate was turned off from the process.

Interview Question –
- How do you intend to immerse yourself in the Fidelity culture since it differs from where you are currently or have been employed.
- What do you know about Fidelity.
I was prepared for both but you need to do your homework so you understand the culture in advance as everything is readily available on their website if you do a little digging. View Answer
