Advice to Management
Great company to work for, some internal processes can be frustrating however. Also pay structure is very unclear, which also leads to further frustration for employees
I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at London Stock Exchange Group (Charlotte, NC) in August 2017.
The recruiter contacted me to schedule a phone interview (after 10 pm EST) . I returned her call the following morning and again the next day when I didn't hear back. Her email response asked for if I was available on a Saturday. I thought this was odd but agreed with a few blocks of time. She never confirmed. On Monday, I called her back and she said she had left a voicemail earlier that morning. (None was left and no missed calls). The phone screening was done and a interview was scheduled later that week.
The interview was with the recruiter and another manager. Several situational questions related to my experience. However before I was finished responding, they interrupted with another question. A decision on the next phases was expected later that week. I followed up with a several emails to the recruiter without any reply. I sent the manager an email and she alluded that the recruiter had sent me an email with the next steps...(I didn't get any emails). It's still a mystery what happened. Communication simply broke-down,
Strange interview process, poor communication and puzzling for the interviewees. Just be patient and follow-up again and again. I think they are short staffed and overwhelmed. It may be a good place for someone inexperienced and learning.
Note: This interview was for a contract role. LSEG does not pay well, the salary was $20K less than market. It wasn't worth my time to invest in getting answers when LSEG doesn't compensate. The recruiters are also contractors and not regular LSEG employees.
