    The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at FactSet (New York, NY (US)).

    First round with HR. Then completed an online hacker rank Assessment. After one week, had a code Pair phone interview with hiring manager. Then got the virtual onsite interview with two different teams. After one day of VO, received a call from HR with an offer. Questions were not too hard, but keep in mind to think out loud during the whole process

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA (US)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at FactSet (Boston, MA (US)) in April 2020.

    Interview

    4 rounds of interviews. 1st round was with a Software Engineer Manager (USA) and BA (USA). 2nd Round was with Engineering director (London) and (3) Engineering manager (USA), last round was with lead talent acquisition specialist in the US that found me through LinkedIn.

    1st round was find where they detailed out the job. The application is a very old 10+ years WinForm application written in C# with Microsoft office products integrated into the WinForm application. Part of the role is being a scrum master which all the developers take turns being the scrum master. Also, there is some interaction with the clients when the FactSet consultants can't fix a bug or resolve a customer related issue with the application. Most of the newer exciting web and mobile development is taking place offshore in London, England where they are re-writing the product in Vue.
    Sadly, the technical screening was not really thought out well and they relied on 2 Hacker rank questions. I would of really appreciated it if they could of concentrated and put some effort into selling the position and what they were currently doing rather than relying on a computer generated test. There was not a lot of effort or pzazz that went into presenting the position. The job as presented would of been a big step back in time with technology.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at FactSet.

    Interview

    About 45 minutes interview, all of the questions about a piece of code. I need to debug the code. The most challenge part is that all the bugs can not show in the result. If you run the code, the result is fine and no bugs reported. You need to find the bug with the result and the description beyond each method. I do not think it's a good way in interview if you test some details in code with a time limit. But, anyway, if you are a good programmer, you should handle all cases.
