    Excellent place to learn about the credit industry
    Pay is competitive, lots of exposure to clients and data

    Long term growth isn't a big thing here, many "lifers" who seem somewhat stuck.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at FICO (San Diego, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted within 1 week by HR to forward them a resumé. Soon after, I was offered a phone interview which took ~1 hour.

    Within a month, I was contacted again about scheduling a day to go in person to the office for a full interview. This interview consisted of multiple 1-2 person panels. Each panel was a back and forth conversation discussing my previous experience, or asking questions.

    The company took me out to lunch, then after lunch I gave a 1 hour seminar talk with a short QA sessions after. There was one last panel at the end of the day.

    Soon after I was offered the position.

    Interview Questions

    • Many problem solving questions were asked, one example is what is the probability to get heads at least once when flipping a coin 10 times?   Answer Question
