    I wanted compensation for stock options too, so was given some stock in compensating what I was losing at my previous company, although with lesser stock than I had.
    Their offer was final & didn't seem open for any negotiations, take it or leave it.

    The process took a day - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Used campus recruiting to get interview. Four rounds of interviews in one day, with 2 or more interviewers in each round. Interviewers were friendly but straightforward with their questions. They seemed to prefer concise answers.

    The people I encountered seemed pretty down-to-earth, and the culture/environment was surprisingly low-key (as opposed to the stereotype of cut-throat, isolated, and fast-paced environments associated with some firms).

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview Details

    Sent in my resume for the analyst position, was contacted by hr via email fairly quickly to set up a phone interview. I sent back my availability and they responded with the interview date and time within a day. Had the phone interview that same week with a would-be junior team member. He asked typical questions like walk me through your resume and strengths/weaknesses. Two days after I was emailed again by hr to set up an in person interview. Was set up with an interview that same week lasting an hour and a half. Half an hour for each interview. First met with two people, the manager and a team member. Then two more team members right after that, and one more team member after that. Mostly easy going interviews after the first one. Manager was really hard to read and didn't seem very personable.
