    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Interactive Data (New York, NY) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Phone screen with HR, which went well. Phone interview with Hiring Manager and then a series of interviews with Sr members of the team. Then the HR team went completely silent, not responding to phone calls or emails. Completely unprofessional and altered my opinion of working for the company.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Interactive Data (New York, NY) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted via email to schedule a phone interview, During the phone interview I was told that my skills and experience could be a good match and was invited to interview with the hiring manager.
    The interview was a fine conversation. I was truly interested in the position, shared my experience and got some information about the company, the work and the team.
    I was given something like a test with 3 text and 9-10 questions to answer in 15 minutes. I made 1 mistake because the question formulation wasn't precise (same question was described by the hiring manager as a tricky question during the revision - for me it was no more than poor use of language but I didn't say anything for the Power is on their side, no matter their competencies).
    I was informed that they selected another candidate, 4 days after the interview. Soon after, they published a post for the same position.
    I am unemployed after being laid off and I had a long trip for the interview but wasn't offered a ticket reimbursement which was surprising, considering the dimension of the company. Therefore, I chose to rate the experience as a negative one.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Interactive Data (Bedford, MA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Worst Interview experience ever...I applied online, after an phone interview with recruiter and hiring manager, I took an onsite interview at the IDC Bedford office. It was a five people, back to back interview, most of them are managers. Each manager were assigned a 30 mins time-slot as scheduled. In fact, One of the biggest manager is extremely lack of respect, before I start talk with him, he said: " I am very busy, I only have 15 mins for you". I was like 'WTF??!!! Seriously? Is this the first sentence for an interview??? Even though you are a manager, you should still at least show some respects for the person who came to interview', at that moment, I loose 120% of my interests in this company. The interview process also sucks, I am disappoint with them and they must also disappoint with me. Totally waste of time.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Interactive Data (Bedford, MA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    HR phone interview with basic behavioral questions. This was followed by an in person interview with both the manager and the director. The interview was easy, but you have to ask a lot of questions. Also, team experience and excel skills are a necessity. Be personable. The interview is basically a conversation, with basic interview questions added in. They ask about past experience as well.
