    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Nomura Holdings (Mumbai (India)) in December 2015.

    Interview

    1st Technical Telephonic => 2nd HR => 3rd Executive Director (ED) => May have 1 more technical, final round is F2F Technical.

    Overall experience was good but ED round was messed up. Despite of informing that I am not very good in Database programming (as my current role is in C++ and completely as application developer, the interviewer kept asking me all database Q's. And guess what I was eliminated saying C++ is good but Database is average. I am sure It was diff for them to eliminate me on any stupid reason for C++ skills.

    Suggestion would be though the role is for C++ prepare for Database too like SQL joins....

    Interview Questions

    • Some Q's about boost, stl, OOP's concepts Inheritance, static and dynamic binding related Q's, DLL's, Design Patterns (they are not much interested in Creational patterns) Sorting and Search.

      Some puzzles are asked too.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Nomura Holdings (Powai, Maharashtra (India)) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I got recruited via campus placements. In the aptitude test, 23 students were selected out of 300+. After that there were 4 rounds, each lasting 30-35 minutes. Two rounds for Technical and two for HR. Technical interviewers were very friendly and asked logical questions as opposed to programming ones. HR interviewer seemed bored and kept throwing tricky questions my way. In one of the interviews, he yawned, got up and left the room for a walk. Ofcourse, they do all this to test your nerves. Hold your own and you'll be fine.
