    I worked at MBAF full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked for their condo division, Kane & Co, before they merged with MBAF. The partners are the nicest and most knowledgeable in the industry. They are still in that department. Great place to work and learn

    Cons

    Standard auditor hours. 55-60 during audit season. 45 or so for 8 months out of the year.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at MBAF (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Went through college recruiting interview with HR Manager who asked behavioral questions. Was invited to another interview at the firm which took 3 hours, meeting with partner, managers and supervisors which was more laid back and more to measure your personality.
