    Renewals Billing Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SS&C Advent (San Francisco, CA (US)) in July 2020.

    Interview

    4 interviews from hiring manager, to other team members, to hiring managers' boss. After the interview process, I never received any feedback or definitive update on my candidacy. I clearly wasn't chosen for the job but I was also not given the customary rejection letter. When I emailed the recruiter 3 weeks later, he said 'everyone liked me' and told me to apply for another role.

    Grimly, because there are so many women, I think that's a telltale sign that the company underpays and it's a great company only if you yourself are looking for a breezy work/life balance. I don't know, that left a sour taste in my mouth as it's pretty disrespectful so I can't recommend bothering with this company.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at SS&C Advent in March 2020.

    Interview

    It was very quick. I had a phone call with the recruiter on Monday. It was about a 10 minutes conversation about what the company was, what they did, and we set up a video interview for Friday. I was a little skeptical about this because when the hiring specialist called me it was from a restricted number.

    Product Manager Interview

    No Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at SS&C Advent (New York, NY (US)) in December 2019.

    Interview

    Initial contact was with HR, scheduled very quickly to speak with Senior reporting manager in less than a week over the phone. Advised would follow up after holidays. Most of the interview was behavior and situational. Received communication an internal candidate was selected but wanted to know if I was interested in pursuing other roles as they were interested and great feedback was provided. I didn't experience the 'dark' period many previously expressed and was quickly handled, especially during the holidays. I was also impressed with the honesty and their willingness to share talent within the organization.

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at SS&C Advent in May 2019.

    Interview

    Absolutely horrific communication from Advent. Applied in March, wasn’t contacted for interview until May. Interview was on a Tuesday with two friendly team members. I followed up with hiring manager same day and she said to expect an update by the end of the week. The next Tuesday came and still no response. I sent a brief email inquiring about my status and she quickly responded - saying I’d be contacted with a decision by the end of that day. Two more days passed before I received notice that I was no longer being considered.
