Senior Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee in New York, NY (US)
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at FactSet (New York, NY (US)) in January 2012.

Interview

The initial phone interview was rather straightforward, but the interviewer was kind of short and arrogant. Normal CS-theory questions about Big-O running times for specific algorithms and what sorting methods would be optimal given a set of data.
The on-site interviews were 4 back to back interviews with two being engineering topics (algorithms and data structures was the first, in-depth system designs the second). The other two were personality and HR tests, if you consider those to be real interviews (which, I guess they kind of are).

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at FactSet (Hyderabad (India)) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through online, Whole process took 3-4 weeks

    First round was technical written test, I thought I didn't clear this round as I didn't hear from them for 1.5 week.

    After that recruiter scheduled technical discussion, the way they asked the questions was good. In the same round Immediately they asked some logical questions.

    Next round was Managerial round where they explained me about project and team and timings etc. Same round they asked about expected CTC also.

    Next HR called me for final discussion and released the offer on the same day.

    major focus is on algorithms for the mid level candidates, for more experienced there is a lot of emphasis on design. There are different teams and each team interviews the candidate on different technologies. The teams work in C#, C++, Angular js, SQL and so on.
