    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wellington Management in February 2017.

    Interview

    One of the interviewers was 10 minutes late for the interview. He called me directly on my cell phone rather than the WebEx session set up for the complete interview day. Got hung up on one technical question and kept on asking it over and over again. Used the 15 minute break that was scheduled for me after the interview, even took 5 minutes of the next interviewers time who came on the WebEx session. I had to deal with both the interviewers at the same time; one on the WebEx session and the other on the cell phone. And did not leave any time for me for questions about the role.

    Business Continuity Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Wellington Management (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    Highly behavioral based interview. It was very straightforward and they truly seemed to care more about fit and actual personality than black and white skills. Don't get me wrong, knowledge and skills and super important but they care that they'll like working with you everyday. Overall I actually felt good and enjoyed the interview process. It seems easy but there is a lot of room for error so you need to tailor how you answer the questions to best highlight your abilities and leave time for as many questions as possible.

    Business Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Wellington Management (Boston, MA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online. Heard back about first round interviews a few weeks later and completed a case study for the ESG track. A week and a half after that, I was invited to Boston to interview for the ESG track and the finance track. I met with two teams from each track for a total of four 30 minutes interviews. The interviews were almost entirely behavioral and conversational, besides a few Excel questions for Finance. I was called the next day and offered the ESG position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Wellington Management (Boston, MA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    While lengthy and a bit slow on feedback, the people were fantastic. The interviews were enjoyable and the wonderful culture of the firm was apparent. The firm is known for taking a long time during the recruitment process, but they are also very careful who they let it, so be patient.

    Lead Business Systems Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Wellington Management (Boston, MA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process is the longest I have seen in any company, comprising at least 3 rounds, each round with 4-6 people, one hour per person, lasting a full a day each time. The actual in person interviews were easy.

    The total hiring process took a month and a half which is very inefficient and is almost like the hiring manager does not want to take responsibility for the hiring decision and instead needs to have the person interview not only with the people in his/her group but also people in other groups across the company.

    After all this, the base salary offered is not up to par but there are promises of large bonuses (which are yet to come). Wellington prides itself in "getting talent on the cheap". If you get to the offer stage, recommend negotiating hard for a higher base salary as the Information Technology (IT) department is a cost center and budgets are shrinking year on year due to turmoil in the money management business. No guarantees if your salary will increase as expected, you will get a promotion (even if you perform) or if the promised bonus will come. You are better off with a strong start rather than relying on empty promises from HR and the hiring manager.

    Also IT in general is in a downward spiral due to poor management and decision making, dated approach to problems solving, lack of respect for people and what they have to offer and last but not the least long hours and high stress. In one word environment in IT is "Toxic". If you factor all of these to calculate your pay as an hourly rate, you are actually paid below market.
