Hi, I am penning this article with the intention of sharing my interview experience with FactSet. If you are about to appear or are preparing to appear for such role in the future, do give this a read! Hope it will help you.

I will not reveal the exact question because of the company policy.

There were three questions and the time to solve all those was 1.5 hour. The questions were based on Data Structures and Algorithms.

I was able to clear this round and got selected for next round.

  • JS was asked in depth and then few Questions on React.js.
