    I worked at Brown Brothers Harriman full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to start a career to gain perspective. Good work environment for the most part due to the fact that so many people in their 20's are in such close proximity. Hard work is noticed by management.

    Cons

    Extremely mundane, procedural work. Worked 11-7 (usually 8) so the hours were a little strange. Pay couldn't be much lower.

    Advice to Management

    Pay those you'd like the department to grow around.

    Application

    The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Brown Brothers Harriman.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview/screening with a recruiter, then got contacted about two video interviews with employees in Systems department -- these were almost all behavioral questions, most of it was just going over my resume and asking me about various experiences. Recruiter called me 5 days later with an offer.

    Interview Questions
