    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Fidessa (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Interview was many years ago and the process has changed. Had 2 interviews. HR Manager was 30 minutes late but that was typical of the person in the position at that time (changed a year after I joined). Not that challenging on the first IV - standard questions. Easy to answer as had the relevant experience. 2nd IV was more challenging with Director. Asked more searching questions. Job offered after 3 days of 2nd IV - salary not within my range - they adjusted it slightly and decided to take the job. Good choice. Had the best time.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Fidessa (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Submitted application via recruiter and had to do an analytical test on-line. Following the test, I had two interviews - one with a hiring manager, and one with the head of department. The former was more technical which included question about OOP, SQL, and issue troubleshooting. The latter was more personal and tried to gauge my career aspirations and where I would fit in with the department.
    All that is required is to have sound technical ability and to do some research about the company beforehand.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Had to make a case for my pay at the second interview. Benefits are standard across the company.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Fidessa (Woking, England (UK)).

    Interview

    They were very polite and formal dressed as expected from such a company. I failed at the programming test although I had to write only two normal difficulty functions and I had plenty of time. An advice: Although the probems were easy you must not relax because something might go wrong when you try to debug it.

    Interview Questions

    • Java problem:.An integer number was given and you had to write a function that would return the unique numbers of the number e.g. 156->3, 155->2.   2 Answers

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Fidessa (Woking, England (UK)) in July 2012.

    Interview

    I was contacted by an agent. He forwarded my CV to Fidessa and after a couple of days they asked me to do an online programming test using Codility. I passed that test so they asked me to go to Woking for an interview. A manager greeted me, who was very friendly and took me in the assessment room. There I was asked some general questions about me and the company and then I had to take a 1 hour test again using Codility.

    The problems were fairly simple in logic, though I failed because I didn't thought of some extreme cases like min/max integer and stuff like that. The code is expected to be efficient so careful when looping. I may have rushed a bit. I failed the test so the interview process stopped there.
