Had 1:1 interviews with the group I was supposed to work with if I got the job.

After the final round, I had to follow up with the hiring manager after I hadn't heard back in 3 weeks.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Thomson Reuters in March 2009.

    Interview Details

    You must have some technical understanding. That's probably more critical than having a financial background. Position yourself as someone with User Experience (UX) credentials. That is much needed at the organization. Interview is 2 rounds at the minimum. The company is so large, it's hard to know who you would interview with. Most people are friendly. Be prepared to discuss your experience with PROJECT Management as well. Knowledge of Microsoft Project a big plus for this role.

    The process took 2 days - interviewed at Thomson Reuters in March 2009.

    Interview Details

    This was an internal interview for a position on a new strategic project. I already had experience with the hiring manager, so that was pretty straight forward. I then had to meet with the VP but that was just a formality because I'd already gotten sign-off from the hiring manager. Both interviews were more casual chats, talking about my experiences with the company and both had knowledge of people I had worked with in the past, so that made the interviewing process a lot easier. I didn't feel like a complete stranger during the interview process.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Thomson Reuters in March 2009.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and had a phone interview with a recruiter. This also served to provide me with more information about the position, hiring manager and the group. After this initial screen, I met with the hiring manager (30-40 minutes) and a couple development managers (20-30 minutes) on my first visit to the company. Questions focused on my work experience and specific accomplishments mentioned in my resume. A number of questions were designed to gauge fit with the team and the overall attitude/personality. I was given information on competency areas that they were looking for for the position. On my second visit I met with the SVP and head of the group (20-30 minutes). A few industry related technical and domain questions in addition to questions regarding what my expectations were with respect to work profile, team etc.

    Overall I was impressed with the professionalism with which the interview process was handled though the start to end process was a little drawn out going slightly over a month.
