    Found through campus recruiting. After an informational session on campus, had a 1:1 interview with an SVP. Was asked back for a 2nd and 3rd round interviews in the New York office. The company paid for and made flight and transportation arrangements. The 2nd and 3rd rounds consisted of mostly fit and background questions with around 10 other analysts/VPs each time. Extremely long two days of interviews but mostly everyone was pleasant and helpful.

    Reasons for Declining

    Could not get a feeling that it is a right place for me to advance and grow in my profession.
    Certain things appear as false promises and unable trust would be manager.
    Head of the unit seems to have very little vision about the future of his team members and possible professional advancement for their analyst.
    I Know couple of their ex-employees and their feedback is inline with my observations.
    No 401k for last 3yrs. No salary increase in the last 3yrs.
    Cheap offer for the skillset.
