    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at S&P Global Market Intelligence (Washington, DC) in February 2014.

    Interview

    I applied through a campus recruiter. The process took three weeks, and I was interviewed by two people, a product consultant and a account manager. The interviewers were very straight forward about the position description, the hiring process, and the company culture. Most of the interview was spent discussing my major and qualifications, and there were very few behavioral questions.

    Interview Questions

    • I do not come from a finance background, so the interviewers really grilled me on how my background fit into the job position.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at S&P Global Market Intelligence.

    Interview

    Got interview through on-campus recruiting. There was a 30 min pre-interview technology test. Afterwards, a behavioral interview where the recruiter discusses the results from the test and asks questions about your approach. There were plenty of questions about why you chose a certain design and other human-computer interaction questions. Finally, the recruiter gives a general overview of the position and responsibilities. Very informal one-on-one talk.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at S&P Global Market Intelligence (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied through my university's career web site before 2009, and was contacted for the first round interview.

    First round - Two technical interviews with software engineers. We were given a paper test with 5 questions that have been stated close to verbatim in previous reviews (find closest common parent of two nodes, reverse a linked list, count # of bits in a byte, db schema, cache design). The interviews are essentially a review of that paper test, and you may be asked to answer a slightly-modified version on one of the questions.

    Final round - Two technical interviews and one HR interview. Both of the interviewers were senior engineers, and they asked different types of programming questions that are more or less on par with the paper test in the first round. The HR interview was very relaxed.

    During the process, you eat lunch with other employees (with no connection to the interviewers) and may ask questions. My process was quick; I was contacted the day of the first round interview for the final round invite, and I was contacted a week after the final round with an offer and accepted.

    Interview Questions

    • -Finding the lowest common parent of two nodes can be tricky
      -Detecting a palindrome (this was asked to nearly every candidate when I was applying)  
      Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Was able to push back start-time, and slightly change the compensation.
