    It is a good company to work for, gives great exposure into various financial products.
    Good career opportunities.
    Very good PTO and WFH facility, as as long as productivity doesn't take any hit.


    Salaries are not competitive with the market, particularly if you are with the company long time.

    The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Interactive Data.


    Overall the hiring and interview process was quite smooth.

    I had to go back and forth for some HR related questions, but eventually got everything answered.

    The interview itself was quite informal and no high pressure.

    I was able to negotiate the final salary amount.

    I would advise people in general to ask more, so if needed you can come " down".
