    I worked at Advanta

    Pros

    This was a great company to work for many benefits. Forward thinking in their IT technology area. Great people to work with. Great learning experience.

    Cons

    Company seem to lose its direction on its core competency areas. They seem to abandon ship too early not wait for recovery.

    Interview Details

    I had a consortium on Thursday where they basically just showed us around the
    office and gave us a brief break down of what operations does. Then on
    Friday I had 2 different interviews with 2 people in each interview.

    Some questions were -
    1) tell me about a time when you improved a system?
    2) If i were to talk to your old boss, what would he/she say would be
    your greatest weakness?
    3) Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
    4) What is your greatest accomplishment?
    5) Operations does not make GS money, so why is it needed?
    6) They will prob ask questions about GS stock, competition, what's
    going on in the news, etc (do your homework!!!!!)
    7) I was not asked this, but one kids was - Do you know what a pivot
