    I applied this job via workday on 12/24 and received an email from a SP&G recruiter on 1/16 (Thursday) asking my availability for phone screen. I replied her email right way and she did not reply. Sent a follow-up email on the following day which is Friday, still no response so far.

    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at S&P Global (New York, NY (US)) in November 2019.

    Interview

    Call from internal recruiter. Phone chat with hiring manager. Assignment of two projects to be completed within one week. Required data for second project not forthcoming. No response for a couple of weeks and then told manager chose a candidate " more succinctly fit" . Job still posted after three weeks. Guess what the reason is.

    Machine Learning Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at S&P Global.

    Interview

    Screening phone call with the director - normal conversation and all that, nothing technical. My experience and work samples were discussed.

    This is not exactly the machine learning engineer position where one expects in the market but merely a data engineer/software engineer position. They are looking for someone to build data pipeline/visualization tool. You will not be in charge of the (NLP) model training and enhancing the model efficiency; instead, data scientists in this company/organization will be responsible for that. From the discussion, there is not much room for employee growth regarding this position. If you want a stable job, this is the right place.

    This company allows employees to work four days instead of five for a compressed schedule - pretty nice perk.

    Interview Questions

    • Which aspect of data science are u particular at, math, model/algorithm, devops, etc?   Answer Question

    Interview

    it is very difficult to find advice on how to best prepare for the interview for this job. however it has so far been an exciting experience. after application screening, they give you a 10 question test and next is a phone screen. not sure what happens after that.
