    Consulting Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at FactSet (London, England) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Standard online tests but with some brain teaser questions. Prompt invitation to a live video interview. Asked general competency questions and a lot of business specific questions. Questions were quite in depth. Make sure you know what the consultants do and what FactSet provides information about - e.g what types of clients, difference between types of investment/asset management.
