Reasons for Declining

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Goldman Sachs in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    You have to make everyone believe you are all rooting for the same cause and you will succeed even though your choice of action to achieve that objective will probably differ. It is not a problem to disagree with the interviewer as long as your argument has merit and you are not just being objectionable because you feel that gives you kudos. The drawback was that whilst nearly all of the people are super bright and highly driven, the world they live in is based on different requirements from "life". These people are not executioners outside "executing" a deal.
