I worked at FICO full-time (More than a year)
Smart people with stats backgrounds who skip the 'data science' hype for the most part and produce meaningful analyis
Salary is low. Pace can be slow. Some teams are hard to work with.
Advice to Management
Pay more. More transparency between teams.
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at FICO (San Diego, CA) in October 2015.
I was contacted by the recruiter of the Company. Once I replied with interests, I was quickly offered a questionnaire to fill out. An interview was scheduled within a week, following a phone call from the recruiter. The interview is about 1.5 hours long with three different interviewers within the Department. The whole process was smooth and enjoyable. Basic interview questions were asked and my resume and experiences were thoroughly discussed. The interviewers were really friendly and provided extensive information regarding the position as well as the Company.
