Financial Analyst Interview

Financial Analyst
New York, NY

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Credit Suisse in February 2008.

Interview Details – I met with HR. HR was adamant on explaining that there would be little to no pay increase.
Interviewed with Director. Director seemed positive, however HR seemed turned off that I mentioned pay.
Realized that Credit Suisse can be very very frugal. Discussed base pay and past responsibilities. I was concerned over the future of the division, which seemed to turn off the Director a bit. The environment was laid back. The interviewer was very polite and likable. However, my direct questions I felt were a bit too much.

Interview Question – Where do you plan to be in 5 years.   Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Credit Suisse in August 2009.

Interview Details – Basic product knowledge questions were asked along with ones to see if I actually read the description of the job. The interviewers let me do most of the talking as I explained my strengths and the projects I have worked on in the past. Overall, a very relaxed and easy-going interview. It only took one formal interview.

Interview Question – Most questions were easy. Just asking why the position interested me.   Answer Question
