    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Credit Suisse.

    Interview Details

    I did 3 phone interviews. The first interview was some basic technical Netbackup questions from the recruiter. The second interview was fairly technical again with a Director and a senior engineer. The third was very non-technical with the actual hiring manager. All the interviews were laid back and low stress the people seemed great.

    Reasons for Declining

    After verbally agreeing to a salary and relocation package Credit Suisse contacted me to change the agreement. I understand that is a possibility but it is unprofessional.

    Investment Banking Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Interview Details

    Contacted to go up to NYC to the office. First we had this lunch and networking, and then there was a series of interviews. I had three interviews overall, each took about 30 minutes. Mostly behavioral/fit questions. Interviewers were nice and I think they did a good job of providing a welcoming and not-too-intense atmosphere so that you felt comfortable before going in to the interview.
