I worked at Salient full-time (More than 3 years)
Diverse product offering for servicing financial advisors and their clients. They have great benefits package and paid time off to with the positive work environment
Current business cycle and market decline has caused more outflows vs. inflows. Once Salient gets the net flows to the positive , their future is very bright.
I applied through other source. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Salient (Horseheads, NY) in February 2012.
It was the worst interview in my life I have seen. Where I had to find myself for lunch. I was asked to go outside and get lunch by own. First interview for technical position in my life where I was only asked behavioral questions.
The interview was having almost 250 MCQ's with 142 as part of profile test and rest was quantitaive questions.
There was big change made by HR but then they did not even care to inform me about that.
Reasons for Declining
Not good salary. No good environmet at all.
