    Consulting Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at FactSet (London, England (UK)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Absolutely horrific. First you're asked to complete a finance test. No hard questions but computers were super slow and wouldn't work at times. The room felt like a sauna. Very little time given despite technical issues with their technology. The worst was however the really rude management/senior consultants that are there to assess the interviewees. After the finance test you're asked to perform a short interactive lecture of your choosing. My group's assessors looked like they absolutely didn't want to be there and were rude and uninspiring 100% of the time. The HR people seemed pretty nice though. I got a very bad impression of the culture and the job itself and would have turned down had I gotten an offer.

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at FactSet (San Francisco, CA (US)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Same process as everyone else on here. Got to the in-person interview in SF & I had 4 interviews, 2 "good cop" 2 "bad cop" interviews with a test at the end. Was told I would hear back within 2 weeks, that was end of March. After following up, I still have not heard back to this day. So unprofessional from a large established company.
