Advisory Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee
Accepted Offer
Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at IBM.

Interview

Very slow. There were about four months between my application and offer acceptance, and it was over five months before I started.

Hiring is largely outsourced to India, and interviews were over the phone along with a round (half day) of interviews on-site with the management team. Interviews included a lot of behavioral questions and were generally light on technical questions, especially compared to companies like Google or Facebook.

Interview Questions

  • Describe a business problem you faced and how you implemented a solution.   Answer Question
