    Interview

    Got the interview through a staffing agency. I went in to their office in Boston and interviewed with two people, individually. Each interview took about 15 minutes and didn't really get too technical. I feel they were just looking for someone who would fit well with their team based on personality and related work experience. Be prepared to walk them through your resume.

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Brown Brothers Harriman (Boston, MA) in March 2010.

    Interview

    The interview was really friendly and informal, though trying to test the depth of my knowledge of financial products and the methodology and conclusions of my memoirs of studies, dealing with REIT mispricing. The Manager of the accounting department was getting into more and more business specificities, whilst the HR manager was trying to bring back the conversation to personal questions.

    Interview

    Got a rec from a school alum and had first round with HR. Lasted about 45 mins and was told I'd hear back regarding next round within a week. Next day got the call saying I made it to the next round and scheduled an interview for a few days later. Interviewed with AVP and Associate. Extremely easy, almost no technical questions.
