Manager, Advisory Services Interview
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at BSR (New York, NY).
Pretty straightforward process. It included two phone screens, then in person interviews with three people, and then I was made an offer. I was not asked any difficult questions and to this day do not understand why. The interview process since I was hired has changed a bit and seems more rigorous, especially at the senior level with presentations and writing samples required. I had to do none of that.
- None actually - I was just asked to explain my experience in more detail. Answer Question
There was no negotiation. Salary was low, and they wouldn't budge.
