    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Wellington Management in April 2014.

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Wellington Management.

    Interview Details

    You meet with quite a few people during the interview process I think I met with 7 or more and that is on the low end for WMC but the position was more junior... No unusual questions but it seemed as though they definitely wanted to make sure I was a cultural fit and could articulate my past experience well.

    Fixed Income Product Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Boston, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Wellington Management.

    Interview Details

    I applied to the job through a recruiter.
    - Had an initial phone interview screen with HR, the usually questions, why are you leaving? why this job? can you describe to me the job? Basic questions. After you passed the phone screen you will be give your interview schedule with bios, time slots, etc. (everything was very detailed)
    - Had first rounds with 5 people, 30 mins each, HR was first, followed by the partner of the group, manager, analyst, and HR again. Usually questions again but with some curve ball questions... "give me a situation when you have failed and what did you learn from it?", got completely stumped and numbled my way through the interview. HR re-capped at the end and asked "what have you learned from the interview?" and once again I got stumped. Heard they gave finalist interviews a case study to work on.

    General traits that they are looking for- (1) They want somebody easy to work with, no ego, (2) Passion/strong interest in finance, you should be reading finance books/advancing your skills in your spare time, (3) pedigree - they like sum laude even if its not from an ivy, be ready to explain your bad GPA (4) history of fast advancement in your past jobs/strong work ethic, (5) prepared you always have to be prepared.

    Lead Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Boston, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Wellington Management.

    Interview Details

    There were about 14 interviews, in batches of 3 or 4 each time. Interviews were a mix of video-conference and face to face, but always one-on-one.

    Some interviewers were very technical, and wanted the details. Some of them were at a very high level. Once I joined, I realized that many tech-interviewers were very senior managers, while some of the fluffs were supposed to be hands-on folks.

    Interview Questions
    • "How would you address this issue:....<a stituation>". These are the most difficult ones, because interviewers think of situations that they currently face at work, but the candidate cannot give a convincing answer unless she knows the all the details.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    HR negotiates, the managers don't get involved. You cannot get personal or let your guard down with HR at any moment. They will use every bit of personal info they can get from you in their negotiations. HR is very aggressive about their business. A lot more if offered in bonus, but they are seldom met in reality later.

    Interview Details

    Applied to a position posted on the website and process was facilitated by an internal contact. Had a pleasant and informative interview which unfortunately did not result in an offer. Very interesting company with a solid reputation. The position was global in scope so it required late night availability and significant travel.
