    Accounting Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Brown Brothers Harriman (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    The whole process took about two months. First was a phone interview with HR. Within about a week I received a call from my recruiter saying they wanted me to come in for an in-person interview. When I interviewed I met with the department head first and then the hiring manager after. I waited a few minutes for the department head to meet with me to meet with me but once that meeting was done, I waited about 30-45 minutes to meet with the hiring manager. Despite the wait, the interviews went really well. They were so busy, it took a couple weeks to hear back after the interview with an offer. I didn't realize that was the normal rate of their interview process until I was actually working there, saw it and participated in them.

    Interview

    Applied in October and heard from a recruiter in November. Set up a phone interview in late November and then had another interview in their NYC office. Whole process was lengthy and communication from HR was inefficient. Often had to send multiple e-mails to get any information from them.
