    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Envestnet.

    Interview

    Phone interview with what would be my current supervisor. Mostly technical question with a few personal quests for the ice breaker effect. Had a brief in person meetup so they could put the face to the voice. All in all the process was smooth.

    Senior Software Developer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Envestnet (Berwyn, PA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    First phone screen with manager of development (super nice guy!). This was an hour and primarily discussed position and asked few technical questions. One weird question was why does Java have an Object class?
    Next go in for on site visit with same manager (again super nice guy!). This was another 1/2 hour discussion then a written test is administered with paper and pencil! The written test has 2 UML diagram questions on it and a coding exercise to create a SSN class with methods like toString, hashCode/equals, etc. Plus there was a SQL question where they were looking for a UNION type query. I honestly can't remember ever doing a hand written coding test before so I volunteered to do the interview by actually writing code in IDE (and other questions on whiteboard) but they declined and wanted it handwritten on paper instead. Very old school type of interviewing so be prepared if you interview there! Honestly not the right fit for me.

    Interview Questions

    • To code a USSSNNumber class in Java. What is difference between List/Set? What is difference between HashSet and HashMap? What is big data?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    After visiting them, I experienced a very rigid, controlling atmosphere. I could tell the manager was super afraid of making any mistakes and as a result built all these processes to guard against it. Not very agile at all there.

    Operations Specialist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Envestnet (Berwyn, PA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    First Round was a brief phone interview by the manager which involved the discussion of my resume and background. The week after I went into the Berwyn office to meet with two managers of different groups and another associate. The questions were personality based and did not have a cookie cutter answer so you must know your stuff and be on your feet. I then had a phone interview with another manager who was out of the office for the week. The call was quite thorough and lasted about 45 minutes.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Envestnet (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    The main interviewer was very amiable VP of development. There was one silent guy which always adds stress - he was the senior most dev learning interviewing techniques.The interview was done primarily as a theoretical whiteboard exercise to go over some basic abilities. There was a drink provided and I felt a lot of subtle personality inspection as we walked down - very normal.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Envestnet (Berwyn, PA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Ridiculous. One interview, two individuals involved and no questions. I was left feeling like I was in the twilight zone. I ended up talking about myself in order to showcase my strengths.

    Human Resources Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Envestnet.

    Interview

    I had a phone screen and then a second interview. I was then told that a third interview would be scheduled and then.... crickets. I tried contacting my interviewer for an update via phone and email, and never received a response. This is extremely unprofessional and disrespectful of my time. For the benefit of the doubt, I just let it go. Then, several months later when I saw the position reposted, I contacted the person in HR via LinkedIn to ask if the position was filled previously or placed on hold. I then inquired about the status and what happened with my prior candidacy. I saw that the person clicked on my profile and still never bothered to respond. Based on my personal experience, I would never recommend this company. This is clearly a culture of "what can you do for me" and does not value others. If I am not a fit for the role, then I understand that and am completely comfortable moving on to the right opportunity. I have several years of Recruiting experience and would never be comfortable treating candidates in this manner. A total lack of response is a PR issue and I genuinely believe shows lack of positive culture at an employer.

    Vice President - QA Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Envestnet (Seattle, WA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Brief phone screen with recruiter followed by on-site interview. On-site interview was scheduled to be an hour with the other VP of QA (they were looking to hire a second VP of QA) and then an hour with the CTO. Ended up being with the VP only (although longer than the scheduled hour.)

    General impression I got was that the VP in place was not really interested in hiring another one. When I asked him to describe the existing development process at Envestnet, his comment was "That's not really the way I expected the interview to go." One of his stated criteria for an ideal candidate was that they'd help improve the existing process, and he was reluctant to give any information about what that process is so the candidate could address it? I have a degree in finance, six years with one of the world's largest accounting firms and several years developing financial software for a leading brokerage, all of which was dismissed because I didn't have a background *specifically* in RIA-type portfolio management.

    I've got no problem not getting jobs where there's clearly not a good fit between the employer's needs and my skills. It's bothersome to be in an interview where the interviewer is clearly searching for things to object to.

    Vice President Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Envestnet (Seattle, WA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Conversation with recruiter followed by onsite interview.
    My general sense during the interview was that the person was not interested in hiring anyone. When I asked questions about their process and where he saw this role fitting in, his initial response was "That's not the way I saw this interview going." Yet I felt I lost points for not being familiar with how things are done at the company.

    Interview Questions

    • They wanted to know how familiar I was with their product line and with the Registered Investment Adviser industry (their customer base).   1 Answer
