Interview

If you are a college graduate looking for experience with managing dashboards for investors - this is the perfect company for you. The project managers are very young and they are kept that way by 2 senior managers. If you are an experienced project manager and you are attending for the interview, keep in mind this interview is purely to know what are the best practices in the industry.

What are the program management templates that can be used to show senior management on status 2. How the infrastructure and cloud computing are being leveraged in the industry. Mid way in to the interview, I understood that I was over qualified for the job they gave me an impression of . I declined to move ahead right after the interview .

Interview

Phone interview, younger member of firm who seemed somewhat full of himself. My experience is that the people there are not the nicest. No offense to Mitt Romney, who seems like a good guy, but in general it seems like there are a lot of individuals at this company who are very into themselves and nothing else.
