    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at FBR (New York, NY).

    Interview

    2 weeks start to finish. Spoke to handful of bankers/MDs. Process was unorganized and haphazard. HR is a mess and mostly worked directly with hiring group. Had more than 1 in person meeting in different locations. Focus was really on fit and background, not technical.

    No negotiating with offer...just a taste of how they value their employees.
