    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Investment Technology Group.

    Interview

    Lots and lots of hoops to jump through--the entire process took a month and ended up being a complete waste of time!

    The first round was a technical phone screen which quizzed me on a mix of relevant and obscure programming constructs (keywords, OO paradigms, threading, garbage collection, etc.).

    Next came a timed take-home test, which took a couple of hours. After that, I went on-site and spent 3 hours interviewing with 4 different people. There was a mix of whiteboard coding and behavioral questions, nothing too crazy. At this point, they expressed interest in presenting me an offer, but wait, there's more!

    Before I could get an offer from them, I had to have two more rounds of Skype calls with their management, and had to fill out a variety of forms: a reference check (yes, they called them), my complete employment history, and proof of income at my current and previous jobs (yes, seriously!). I felt like a criminal who had to prove his innocence before I could work there.

    I'd also like to point out that throughout this entire process, they wanted constant reassurance about how great they are compared to other companies. I had no less than four separate phone conversations with them about this, and every time I gave them my honest perspective. I felt like I was dealing with a needy girlfriend, and honestly, it was a major turnoff about the company.

     To top it all off, the day they were going to send me the offer, they called me and told me they changed their minds. What a complete waste of time! I don't think I've ever felt as disrespected by any other company during the interview process

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Investment Technology Group (Boston, MA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Contacted by the recruiter for pre-screen. After that a Technical Screening round.
    Selected for onsite. Got very positive reviews on that. I liked the team as well.

    For final steps, the recruiter was super interested in knowing salary expectations. After a lot of declining, I mentioned a Range. That was it. Absolute no contact after that. Took multiple attempts to even get and update on the status.

    After two months of silence, my mail was answered with a generic reject.
    Negative Experience. Not at all recommended. This kinda reflects how they treat prospective employees.

    Full Stack Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Culver City, CA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Investment Technology Group (Culver City, CA).

    Interview

    Worked with a recruiter that shared my information with ITG and they expressed interest.

    Started with a basic phone screen about my background, which was pretty typical faire. I flew into Los Angeles for interviews with another company and met with ITG for an in-person interview after my other interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • The in-person interviews were all about software engineering concepts. I was interviews by 4 different engineers, each whose focus was on a different part of their tech stack. Was asked to solve some logic problems and C# code on a whiteboard, as well as a bunch of javascript questions. This interview process was the most difficult one I've experienced as a software engineer.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The salary was competitive, but ultimately I wasn't super interested in the work they were doing, and the company being located in Culver City meant it was very far out of the way from the area I was moving to.
