I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at S&P Capital IQ (Delhi (India)) in October 2008.
How did you prepare your resume? Any help/material you took/read? Resume inputs from batch mates & more importantly from seniors. Fine tuning the resume with inputs especially from seniors or batch mates who are already working helped a lot. How did you prepare for your interview/GD? Did you work in groups? Any website/material you read/used for preparation of Case-Studies/HR Questions/Puzzles/Technical/GDs? (Your sending across links/documents would help us compile a single point resource) Importance of mock Interviews & Case studies along with your peers cannot be more emphasized. Lots of material is available in campus both for case studies and HR questions. “BE Prepared ” gives u an insight into what to expect in your interviews ? During Placement Season What was the procedure of selection in the companies you sat for? Company 1: Merryl Lynch, Shortlisting based on online form & test, resume. 2 rounds of Interviews. Company 2: Grail Research, Shortlisting based on test & resume. 2-4 rounds of interviews. Walk us through the GDs/Interviews of these companies. The questions that you were asked and other details that you may remember would be of great help. (You may not write the answers you gave) Merryl Lynch : 1st round had one 10 min interview . Some HR questions & checking basic knowledge in finance. 2nd round had 2 interviews each of 20-30 minutes. Questions on finance, projects, HR, & puzzles in both the interviews. Grail Research : 1st round had 2 Estimation Case studies along with some HR questions. For example “ Calculate no. of cold drinks sold in India in a given year”. 2nd round again was a mix of business case studies and HR questions. If someone wants to appear for these companies, what all should he/she ideally prepare? (If you could draw from your mistakes, it would help a lot.) For students going for Non-Tech companies, neglecting HR questions can be a big mistake (Not particularly sure how imp. it is for Tech companies) “Tell me about yourself” seems to be the most innocent questions of all, but can prove to be a big pain if left for Impromptu. As far as case studies go, solve at least 5 different types of case in your group to get a feel for it.

Capital IQ boasts an extremely cool group of people...I felt very comfortable in the preliminary interview, and during super day interviews.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at S&P Capital IQ (New York, NY) in May 2011.
almost non existent - i knew more about the company than both the HR rep giving the interview and the manager that ultimately hired me. Everyone was new and people seemed more interested in socializing with one another than what was going on with the business. Employees were completely oblivious to everything outside their immediate teams.
