I worked at FactSet as an intern (Less than a year)
The people you work with are competent and knowledgeable. you get a free lunch every day up to like $8, and the work itself is not that hard. The work-life balance is very good: no one is expected to remain in the office for too long after 5.
It would be nice if instead of having free raisins stashed in the kitchens if they had like chocolate or something
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at FactSet (Norwalk, CT (US)) in January 2011.
I initially applied for a job through a friend and didn't get a callback. After a few months another position opened and I applied again through the friend. A few weeks went by and they called back. First I was contacted by a recruiter, then I had a phone interview, then I came in for an in-person interview.
The in-person was a whole day. It started with a presentation of their product, then a code review, two design reviews, a lunch, and finally an interview with the director of the department.
Several days later I received a phone call with an offer.
