    Contrary to what most people have been saying about FactSet's interview process, it is slow and tiresome and they tag the candidate along for a long time before providing any feedback, even after the onsite interviews!

    The interview questions were technical, most of them were easy, its just that the software engineers (interviewers) are so not up to the mark! One interviewer asked me to write a SQL query, and any programmer would know and agree with me that there is more than just one way of writing an inner join--either using the 'join' keyword or do a cross join and add a suitable predicate condition! However the interviewer's knowledge of SQL is so limited that he claimed his answer (with the keyword) was the only correct one! There were other such instances! And FactSet is going to base their decision on my candidacy based on this interviewer's impression of my query-writing skills?! Si perfecto!

    Entretien

    Started off with a phone interview with a recruiter and followed it up with one with a developer there. I was unable to actually come on-site for a while the 2nd phone interview, and they were very willing to wait till I was available. I interviewed in their New York office, and the hospitality was AMAZING. They were extremely friendly, and I got a great vibe from the place. The interviewers definitely made me want to work there. In addition, my recruiter was absolutely AMAZING. Unlike many other recruiters for other companies, she was extremely helpful and replied back to my e-mails in an extremely prompt fashion. Overall, I would definitely recommend this company.

    Questions d'entretien d'embauche

    • Asked to describe how I would design the back-end for Chess. In particular, they wanted to see what kind of abstractions I would make, and how I would treat the board, the pieces, and create the front-end to interact properly with the back-end.   Répondre à cette question

    Raison du refus

    Decided I wanted to pursue other options (not necessarily industry nor financial software). But partially regret not accepting

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé via une recommandation d'un employé. Le processus a pris +4 mois. J'ai passé un entretien à FactSet (New York, NY (États-Unis)) en mai 2013.

    Entretien

    Referred by an employee 3 months ago. Got a phone interview and then invited to on-site interview. The on-site interview included: 1 product representation; 2 Code review; 3 OOD; 4 Algorithm implementation; 5 Lunch interview; 6 HR interview; 7 Director interview.

    Suggestion: If you are a Java person and want to do back end development, this company may not for you. FactSet is a C++ shop. As far as I know, the on-site interview also proved what I heard, the employees who only know Java will be asked to either maintain legacy code written by Perl or do front end development using javascript. Java person barely has a chance to be assigned C++ back end development in FactSet.

    Questions d'entretien d'embauche

    • 1. Code review was 3 pages long code about a triangle class, needed to find the errors, design flaws... You got 10 mins to read the code. keep an eye on the Java syntax, argument list which is too long , null values, pass by value/reference, generalize some duplicated codes into a method, abstraction... If you told them you use Java, this triangle class has a high chance to be your code review.   Répondre à cette question
    • 2. Some questions about OOP and OOD: design a chess game.   Répondre à cette question
    • 3. Wrote an algorithm to get the number at nth row and mth column in the Pascal's Triangle. Generate the triangle from the 1st row to the nth row and then find the number at column m is NOT allowed, you need to use a formular to calculate the number, what an awkward thing. If you do not know the formular then you are screwed.   Répondre à cette question
    • 4. Given a dictionary and a NxM matrix where each element is a character. Asked to write code to find all the valid words that can be formed using elements in a row, column or diagonal in the matrix.   Répondre à cette question
    • 5. Director interview involves going through your resume, discussing about your projects and some behavior questions like why FactSet? You also needed to prepare some questions to ask.   Répondre à cette question

    Entretien

    Applied on the company website. Got a call from the HR for a phone interview and was then invited to their Norwalk office for on site interview. The process was very professionally handled by the HR. I chose C++ as my primary language.
    1. A very thorough introduction to their products, almost like a client training session.
    2. Code walk through. The triangle (mentioned by a few other candidates) class with a zillion errors. Easy but very tedious, you have to watch for dummy loops and wasted function calls.
    3. Data structures and algorithms. Trees, graphs and basic sorting.
    4. C++ language and OOPS. Couple of newbies asked me trick questions with virtual destructors etc. Was asked to implement atoi function. Then discussed design for a chess game.
    5. Lunch
    6. A happy conversation with their head of engineering.
    7. Perfunctory HR interview.

    I applied to Factset through campus. Had an on-campus interview in 2 weeks. After the on-campus interview, I was informed that they would like to conduct a final round of interview at their Norwalk office. Factset gave me an array of dates to choose from for the final round of interviews. The final round of interviews is one whole day, which includes 3 technical rounds, 1 director round and 1 HR round.

    Entretien

    1. phone call, non-technical; just gauging interests
    2. waiting period (1-2 weeks)
    3. onsite interview; all interviews are done in pairs; it's pretty rare that one person will ever be more than an observer. Two rounds of technical, one of experience, one round of human resources, and then a feedback round (which I don't think has any effect).
    4. short waiting period before response.

    Questions d'entretien d'embauche

    • Considering the other questions I normally get asked, none of these were hard. Good general advice: Try to be agile in thinking, and like every whiteboard interview ever, they like it when you talk. They cover algorithms and style.   Répondre à cette question

    I had a phone interview with a senior engineer. He was a very nice person and explained me a few words about the position. Then he asked several technical (programming) questions. I didn't get the job, and was not contacted again but that was expected because I didn't answer correctly to all the questions

    I applied online and got an email from recruiter after couple of weeks (6 - 8) to come up with few time slots for a technical phone screening and to share a piece of code written by me. I emailed them the code and few suitable time slots for interview.

    Questions d'entretien d'embauche

    • The interview was not scheduled. After 3-5 days, the recruiter got back to me when I followed-up multiple times, saying that the hiring manager has decided not to move ahead with me! It was so unprofessional. Didn't expect that from company like Factset.   Répondre à cette question
