    I worked at FICO full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's he center of credit scoring for retail lending in the US and the world. It has a quiet collegial atmosphere, and plenty of opportunities for building interesting models, and increasing global access to credit.

    Cons

    The San Rafael office is a bit hard to get to from Oakland, and the return trip home was a bear.

    Advice to Management

    They should focus more on the core product rather than expanding into other types of scoring.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at FICO.

    Interview

    Flawless! From the moment I was contacted by HR they were super responsive and made sure to follow up when they said they would. I proactively received communication just to let me know they were stil making final decisions. Overall a pleasure to work with
