Manager, Advisory Services Interview

Manager, Advisory Services
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at BSR.

Interview Details – 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.

Interview Question – None actually - I was just asked to explain my experience in more detail.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation. Salary was low, and they wouldn't budge.
