I find GeeksforGeeks very helpful! It helped me prepare for my FactSet interview. Here’s my interview
experience for FactSet which came to my college for recruitment.

Round 1 (Written Coding) :
3 coding questions. (Pen and Paper mode Examination)

-print the element that is common in all rows of a matrix

Eg: 2 3 7

    1 7 8              ans is 7.
    6 9 7 

Find median of two sorted arrays. O(logM + logN)

Round 2(technical interview):
2 interviewers were there and the interview went on for about 60 minutes. Questions they asked were
mainly programming and puzzles and some of the operating system and database concepts.

0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

Fill numbers in the above blank from 0-9 such that number X coming over any number Y means Y should
be in X blanks. For eg: if 2 comes over 0 means 0 should be present in 2 blanks.
