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)
–Zig-zag traversal of binary tree.
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.
-Given an array and a number k, find all pairs of numbers in array whose sum is least near to k.
–How to find intersecting point of two linked lists. (most efficient way).

discounts and offers to customers.

__ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __
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.

2 interviewers and 60 minute duration. It was mixture of both technical and HR round.
-Tell me about youself?
