I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at S&P Capital IQ (Gurgaon, Haryana (India)) in December 2014.
Campus recruitment. First round was telephonic after which we were called to gurgaon office where 4 more rounds were taken. The first round was of half n hour which consisted questions from qa, va, lr and also a 300 words write up. After this we had a technical interview round after which shortlisted candidates had to give one more aptitude test of 1.5 hrs. After clearing that round I had an interview with manager. Basic finance questions were asked although the level of questions in aptitude was a little high.
I applied online. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at S&P Capital IQ (New York, NY (US)).
First interview was a phone screen, which covered the basics of object oriented design. Second interview came a couple months later and was on site with three individual engineers. This interview was bit more in debt, it involved 3 questions related to algorithm design, application design and a high level implementation the database objects required to store the applications data with the correct normalization. The questions were quite manageable and came from regular scenarios which would occur in most enterprise solutions. The last interview was over the phone and was strategically focused on the technologies that position required. Mostly focus on SOA and the Microsoft stack which can be used to build these type of solutions.

I applied online – interviewed at S&P Capital IQ.
Aptitude test, followed by HR round. Then Finance test. These were elimination rounds. Then had interview rounds with managers and director. I felt the HRs were not very co-operative. I mailed them a day before asking about the office location, etc. since I was new to the area but they did not bother to reply.
- Finance Test was difficult as I am not a finance student. Answer Question
