- Accepted OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Wellington Management (Boston, MA).
Phone screen with HR (piece of cake as HR generally only asks about your past experience). The process is very drawn out as HR is quite inefficient so don't expect to be called to come in for a few weeks. Then you come in and do a "superday" - they call it that but it's not really a "superday" that they do at ibanks. You just come in and meet with a lot of people for fit and minor technical questions. Nothing at all like a grilling you'd get at an ibank superday. (Unless you're on the investor side which is a TOTALLY different animal). Usually meet with a number of team members you'd be working with or under. Overall it's not a great process: they take way too long to interview people, they make you meet with a ton of people but most people you meet with are not prepared to interview you - it's overkill for the GRG roles. Wellington boasts about how hard it is to work there because of how long the process is but it's not because they're any better at evaluating candidates; it's because they're just not very good at interviewing people (a large number of bad hires are made every year).
- Asked about general market news, a couple of basic financial terms, when did you improve a process, what did you do to solve an issue with a coworker, etc. Nothing too hard, very standard fit / industry questions. Answer Question
Very little negotiating room on pay - they are cutting costs so you're pretty much going to have to accept what they tell you for most roles on the GRG side.
