    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Tower Research Capital LLC (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Emailed resume and cover letter. Contacted for phone interview a month later. After the phone interview, was invited to an on-site interview a couple weeks later. People were friendly but the interview lasted 8 hours! Employees were clearly not prepared to conduct interviews (they only look at your resume and ask questions on the spot). HR dept seemed disorganized.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Tower Research Capital LLC (New York, NY) in November 2011.

    Interview

    First an on-campus interview, where the guy was very friendly and gave some brainteasers
    Then a phone interview, with some more math and computer science problems
    The final round, an on-site interview, consisted of a 2.5 hour written test, mostly on programming, and then a bunch of 1 on 1 interviews. Friendliness of interviewers was on both ends of the spectrum

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Tower Research Capital LLC (New York, NY) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview.
    Then called for an onsite interview.
    Took a written test for 2 hrs.
    After the test 2 guys went over my answers.
    I got almost all programming questions correct, except probability questions which I skipped.
    In my opinion probability questions doesn't make sense for pure programmer role unless for a quant developer role.
    The HR arranged lunch which is a nice hospitality.
    Then I met with 4 tech people. Discussed projects in detail.
    Looks like they want to get information from me rather than giving any thing.
    I was not at all impressed upon any of these guys.
    These guys seems like immature and technically inferior.
    Not sure what credibility these guys have to evaluate an experienced candidate.
    Looks like their recruiting process itself is flawed.
    I don't think I want to work there, even if I am selected.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Tower Research Capital LLC (New York, NY) in August 2008.

    Interview

    Recruiter fixed up the interview time and they called as expected. Talked directly to the manager of the team hiring. He took time to explain the work environment and the work that the team did. It was a pleasure talking to them. Did not go further as the position was closed without being filled due to a funding issue. However, they did call to explain and I appreciate that.

    Interview Questions

    • Most of the interview was algorithms and puzzles. One question was to describe a shuffling algorithm (as opposed to sorting) and once i did that, its time complexity.   Answer Question
    • Another was a puzzle: A king orders 100 bottles of wine for a celebration. A courtier who's angry with the king over something puts poison in one of those bottles. The king has a way of identifying the poisoned bottle by giving a few drops of wine to a monkey. Since the poison is fast acting, the monkey will die immediately. Whats the minimum number of monkeys needed to find the poisoned bottle?   6 Answers

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Tower Research Capital LLC (New York, NY) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview with of developer.
    Answered pretty much all questions he asked.
    I have much more experience and expertise than that developer has.
    He decided to pass on with out giving any details.
    The company is so immature that these immatured and in experienced people make decisions which basically prevents good talent coming from on board.
    I think it looks like technology management is definitely immature and unorganized.
