    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at SNL Financial in November 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through SNL online portal via an alumni reference. Got a call a couple days later to set a phone screen with HR. After that I did another phone screen with a Manager and finally did a 4 person phone interview (~2 hrs). The process took about 2.5 weeks and went extremely well. The people were fantastic, informative, and totally transparent about the hiring process. SNL has a refreshingly well crafted screening process.

    Business Intelligence Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at SNL Financial (Alpharetta, GA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    It was pretty good until I did the face to face meeting, which was scheduled very last minute, for almost 1/2 a day. I asked them about the culture given the glass door reviews for the company they acquired, iPartners. The response was" I guess you won't be working here". He tried to laugh it off, but his body language said otherwise. He went on to explain they let a woman go the day before my interview because she didn't get along with anyone. DONT ASK ABOUT iPartner reviews! If you're lucky and you work with the manager in Virginia, (not his manager), I think you'll be fine, as everyone from the Virginia area was pretty good. I didn't get an offer, but I wouldn't have accepted. I had a bad feeling about working in the Alpharetta location.
