I worked at SNL Financial full-time (More than a year)
work/life balance and overall firm culture.
Jersey City office management
I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at SNL Financial in November 2015.
Applied through SNL online portal via an alumni reference. Got a call a couple days later to set a phone screen with HR. After that I did another phone screen with a Manager and finally did a 4 person phone interview (~2 hrs). The process took about 2.5 weeks and went extremely well. The people were fantastic, informative, and totally transparent about the hiring process. SNL has a refreshingly well crafted screening process.
Reasons for Declining
It was a tough decision but in the end I decided to go a totally different direction career wise.
