    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Lehman Brothers (New York, NY) in January 2010.

    Interview

    In the US, the investment banking interview process goes like this:
    Submit your resume online or through your contacts;
    Go through a first-round, usually on-campus, interview;
    If you do well, you move to the next round – “superday interviews,” which are held at the bank’s offices (the article you’re reading right now covers this step);
    If all the bankers like you, they give you an offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Lehman Brothers (Jersey City, NJ) in February 2012.

    Interview

    They ask about a lot of data structures and a few brain teasers. Make sure you read some "Cracking the Coding interview" to get an idea for these questions. I would say the technical part is 95% of what they are looking for so spend little to no time thinking of good behavioral responses. Great ideas - especially hobby projects and problems with their favourite language seems really good to me. It should reveal more about their relation to programming.
