    Technology Associate Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Westport, CT (US)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bridgewater Associates (Westport, CT (US)).

    Interview

    Applied online, and received a coding challenge soon after. It was unique in that there was no time limit to finish the challenge. Was selected for a ~30 min technical phone interview a week later, which did not involve writing any code. Was then flown onsite, which consisted of 2 rounds - one technical whiteboard interview and one HR interview, as well as lunch at the office cafeteria. Everyone from the receptionist to the recruiters and interviewers were all extremely professional and polite.

    Accepted the offer and compensation was slightly higher than FAANG, but they converted the internship to a 2-week training program due to the pandemic on extremely short notice and cut pay by half, instead of continuing with an online internship like most other firms. Makes me hesitant to recommend the company to anyone else for this reason.

    Interview

    gave a coding assessment for a product role and after completing the assessment mentioned they didn't receive any code. Didn't mention that to me at all and thought I did bad on the assessment because they didn't receive my code when I actually worked hard on it

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Bridgewater Associates (San Diego, CA (US)) in August 2020.

    Interview

    Good - wanted to see previous time-series modeling experience. First was the phone screen with a recruiter who contacted me on linkedin, then 1 analytical round that asked one main optimization question and followed up with constraint changes. Overall average interview, though look carefully at the dataset that they present you before answering the question.

    Interview Questions

    • Given an excel sheet with a problem, optimize it given the setting and constraints.   Answer Question
