    Interview Details

    The first round is a phone call interview and the recruiters will vet you for financial technical competency and also company fit. I cannot stress enough how important it is to be clear and concise and also avoid being too wordy in your responses. Don't rush through calculations, take your time and walk them through it. Be sure to have an idea of questions to ask them once the call ends

    Interview Questions
    • Standard Technical questions were asked and also a lot of industry specific questions and valuation methodologies. Know the DCF inside and out and learn the relevant valuation multiples for whatever industry group you get into   Answer Question

    So First and only in person round of interview , i went in and i was told i was being interviews for a new team leas by some Manager named as Sonya ....

    Some good questions were asked i.e. explain how you will benefit the company and what are the best skills that you can bring to the table ? and etc...

    So once done with the interview i had a great vibe, because i was told we are looking forward to see you working with us and i was even asked if you were asked for an offer when can you start ??

    Its been a week and there is no answer not even yes or no .. just no feedback at all from the hiring manager ... how can such a big company can't reply you back with a feedback ??

    Worst company ever seriously....
