Best Places to Interview: 2017 (#11)
I have been working at FactSet full-time (More than a year)
Decent working hours, not as good as they claim especially when compared to compensation.
Generally very nice people and nice collaborative environment.
Salary progression is every 6 months, but percentage increases even for high achievers is low, and below market rate.
Advice to Management
Be more concise on communication around salary adjustments, avoid overpromising. Keep having a friendly working environment and open door policies.
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at FactSet (London, England) in November 2015.
1) Online application, included four screening questions and uploading your CV through their recruitment portal
2) Online numerical and financial tests, numerical test was very simple, basic grasp of maths is fine. Financial test was a little harder for those without a financial background, research required prior to taking this test.
3) HR video interview. Interviewer was interested in what I had to say, encouraging.
4) Assessment Centre - Group Presentation, Universal Demo, Excel Test, Micro Teach.
