    Interview

    They are looking for social people. I knew all of their technical questions, but the feedback that I got from a friend working there was that I am not sociable enough. I asked one of the interviewers, but he said it was my technical side that didn't get me the job.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at S&P Global Market Intelligence (New York, NY (US)) in February 2011.

    Interview

    I dropped my resume off at the campus career fair. Was contacted afterward to take a test at the school; after completing the test I was taken to their headquarters in New York. I interview with 3 people, it didn't go well, because their questions were either questioning projects I'd written or write extremely simple code, so there wasn't much to talk about when they're expecting some kind of thinking process that really is unnecessary.

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at S&P Global Market Intelligence (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    This varies depending on the level - be prepared to answer core questions about Microsoft tools like C# and SQL Server

    Solid knowledge of OO design principles is important and try to be concise as some interviewers will write you off if you keep jabbering.

    I did not come across any general knowledge or other non technical questions but it is recommended that you brush up on what's happening in the industry to show that you are motivated.

    Not much. I liked their offer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at S&P Global Market Intelligence (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    I applied through my university's career web site before 2009, and was contacted for the first round interview.

    First round - Two technical interviews with software engineers. We were given a paper test with 5 questions that have been stated close to verbatim in previous reviews (find closest common parent of two nodes, reverse a linked list, count # of bits in a byte, db schema, cache design). The interviews are essentially a review of that paper test, and you may be asked to answer a slightly-modified version on one of the questions.

    Final round - Two technical interviews and one HR interview. Both of the interviewers were senior engineers, and they asked different types of programming questions that are more or less on par with the paper test in the first round. The HR interview was very relaxed.

    During the process, you eat lunch with other employees (with no connection to the interviewers) and may ask questions. My process was quick; I was contacted the day of the first round interview for the final round invite, and I was contacted a week after the final round with an offer and accepted.

    Interview Questions

    • -Finding the lowest common parent of two nodes can be tricky
      -Detecting a palindrome (this was asked to nearly every candidate when I was applying)   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Was able to push back start-time, and slightly change the compensation.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at S&P Global Market Intelligence (New York, NY (US)) in April 2012.

    Interview

    There was an initial paper exam consisting of five question which were not particularly hard.
    They included
    i. write a function that gets the number of set bits in a character
    ii. Reverse a linkedlist
    iii. Find the least common ancestor in a tree

    These questions are used as a conversation starter for the actual interview.
    It is important that you get them right but I doubt if they are of any great consequence
