    Pros

    The biggest positive of FMV is that the firm provides its financial staff with exposure to high profile clients, management, and interesting projects. From day one, associates are asked to step up on complex business valuation matters and be a contributing member to the team. Associates quickly gain exposure to a variety of industries and businesses ranging from small caps to large Fortune 100 companies. Associates are typically given a good amount of responsibility, are not micro-managed, and are able to set their own pace.

    FMV's senior professionals are among the brightest in the industry. They are recognized thought-leaders in the estate and gift valuation community and great at what they do. FMV's management has a focus on high-quality, unbiased, and supportable valuations and as such you continually feel proud of the work product. This is reaffirmed by client interactions and their recognition of a superior product.

    FMV's compensation structure (typically a formula-based payment) offers transparency and motivation to work hard and efficiently. Unlike other firms I have worked at where bonuses have been more of a black box calculation, it is very easy to track annual progress and know where you will come out at the end of the year. The formula structure also makes quick-turns or more challenging projects much more appealing as you know what the implications will be on your compensation.

    Cons

    To be a top producer, you typically have a put in longer hours. However, the firm does really focus on "face time," so as long as you are getting your work done you are not typically required to be in the office after-hours or on weekends.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at FMV Opinions.

    Interview Details

    Initial communications through email, three interviews total; however, third interview seemed to be a victory lap. Office seemed to be very busy, so a little slow on responding. Do not be afraid to follow up after 2 weeks.

    Interview Questions
    • First interview had a written test--I do not think the answers are meant to be answerable in a textbook manner; instead, think analytically and use intelligent and creative workarounds to the questions.   Answer Question
