    Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Norwalk, CT (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at FactSet (Norwalk, CT (US)) in November 2009.

    Interview

    I interviewed for a position at FactSet while completing my degree. HR reached out promptly following a college career fair, which made the process move quickly. FactSet enjoys creating an excitement and that leads to a positive perception of the corporate culture. Fresh, agile in hiring process, not too bureaucratic, and not extra phone screens.

    Went through one 1:1 phone screen interview, followed 10 days later by a full-day onsite interview speaking with systems engineers and engineering managers. Four 45-minute technical interviews with pairs of interviewers through the day, plus intro, interview with manager, interview with asst director, discussion with HR, and lunch. Long day. I received an offer a few days later and was given 2 weeks to reply.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at FactSet in January 2019.

    Interview

    Two absolutely lovely phone screens with low-level programming questions and a few coding exercises. After that - a phone screen with the manager, who happened to be not in the mood at all, was pushy and then gave a feedback of me being rude. That was surprising, but okay, here is my review with an advice of not spending time on this company.
