Client Development Analyst Interview

Client Development Analyst
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at S&P Capital IQ in March 2011.

Interview Details – Consisted of a 1:1 interview on campus. Very laid back. They just wanted to get a feel for what kind of person you are. The next round of interviews took place in NY. They flew me out there for their Super Day, which consisted of several 1:1 interviews and a demo of their platform. Interviews were again focused on figuring you out as a person. They just want to see if you would be a good fit.

The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at S&P Capital IQ in February 2011.

Interview Details – The first round interview was a simple behavioral interview on campus. The second round consisted of a Superday with 4 one on one interviews, a demo of the program, and a tour. The one on one interviews went through your resume. Some emphasized the extracurriculars, while others focused on the work experience. Everyone in the office was great and friendly.

Intern Interview

Intern
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at S&P Capital IQ in October 2010.

Interview Details – First round interview on campus. Straight forward skills test followed by a 1:1 interview reviewing the test. I got a call relatively quickly inviting me to NYC for a second round interview. The interview was a bunch of 1:1 interviews with current employees. The questions ranged from technical to personal. Nothing was too difficult. They were nice enough to fly me up for the day, yet although they offered to pay for the taxi ride, they never did. Taxis in NYC are not cheap.

Interview Question – Find the nearest common parent to two given nodes in a tree.   Answer Question

Contract/Freelance Designer Interview

Contract/Freelance Designer
New York, NY

I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at S&P Capital IQ in February 2010.

Interview Details – HR rep set up meeting with hiring manager via email. Security guards, receptionist and hiring manager were all very courteous and professional.

The work culture seems very young. The dress code for the staff was causal. The decor was typically corporate - wood paneling with wall-to-wall carpeting. The staff seems a little young.

The most important question at the meeting was: "What's your rate?" And they've reposted this job in numerous job boards. They've met with quite a few interviewees already as I learned during the interview. It's possible that somehow none of us were qualified or maybe designers with all those skills they require, quoted the hiring manager a fair and competitive rate which didn't fit in with their budget.

Client Development Analyst Interview

Client Development Analyst
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at S&P Capital IQ in November 2010.

Interview Details – Initial interview was very laid back. No behavioral questions, all about my resume and trying to decide if I would be a good fit for the company. Super Day consisted of four 1:1 interviews, one of which was over video conference. Everyone was super nice and very laid back; they really just wanted to know who would fit best in the company and why I wanted to work for them.

Engineering Interview

Engineering
Boston, MA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at S&P Capital IQ in November 2010.

Interview Details – Clarifi starts with a phone interview with their director of Engineering. That is followed by a technical phone interview where you solve a small coding problem for them. Then they bring you in for a full day interview. For the most part the people there are nice, intelligent people who I wouldn't mind working with. One of the engineers I met there, though, was an absolute jerk with a horrible coding style. My experience with this engineer alone made me know that there was no way I would work there. The interview with him was, without a doubt, the worst experience I have ever had interviewing at a company.
