    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.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at FactSet (Hyderabad (India)) in November 2019.

    Interview

    Received Email from HR with four different job responsibilities for the same role and one job responsibility was matching my profile.

    Interview Process:
    1. Written Test (Hanker Rank Test) - Aptitude, SQL, General Programming questions like to say the output of the program. Mainly the programs were written in C, Java & Python, Few questions on Excel shortcuts or Excel calculations. [If written clear then next round or else back to home]
    2. Technical Interview (was on the same day followed by written) - Professional Overview, Job role explanation by interviewer, questions on R & Python like how to sort data, wide to long format or vice-versa etc etc and I was done for the day and they said if shorlisted you will get a call/Email from HR.

    After 3 days, got call from HR for one more round.

    3. Technical Interview 2 - This time interview was conducted for about more than 1hr by 3 senior technical members. Questions were more on R, SQL, Python and about the role & projects involved. Once done, HR contacted me after a week for next round with Onshore Manager.

    4. Onsite Interview - He was the manager from onshore and the interview was more on personal & professional details. More of manager questions, not so technical

    5. HR Discussion over call - Expectations & all

    So overall interview experience was good and HR was responding quickly for all queries. The pay I asked was not given but I was OK to accept the offer as I was not feeling good to stay in my previous company so accepted the offer.
