    Pros

    Great learning experience! The work environment was fantastic with amazing people. Everyone was very generous of their time and knowledge.

    Cons

    I don't have much to say here. It is a pretty large company and it can feel like you're a little fish in a big pond. The small investment teams help with that feeling though.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! Listen to your employees, they are some very smart people and definitely make your strength. If you are able to keep them happy you will have great success ahead of you!

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    First round was on the phone. The senior guy giving the interview opened the conversation saying ''Look, I have a few to do like this let's keep it short''... Obviously not enthusiastic about it. It really set the pace to a boring, mechanical interview (litterally read questions from a sheet of paper the entire time).

    Interview Questions

    • Two brain teasers, one small case using basic corporate finance knowledge, the classic ''why do you want to work here'' question.   Answer Question
